Listening to "A Mile in A Mixtape" by Je2RiT obviously very inspired by Eminem, but that is not to say that this album is derivative and more that it is comfortable in that the style is familiar.
I am working through a novel by Richard Wagamese "Medicine Walk". He is an excellent writer, but I think that I prefer his autobiographical works. That said I am only half way through so maybe I will be surprised.
Thinking about this quote "Truth is a land without paths" by Tiziano Terzani in "Le Grand Voayage de la Vie" which I found in Looking at Mindfulness" by Christophe Andre along with the most peculiar picture by Fra Angelico (c 1400-1455) where all these disembodied hands are slapping Jesus and Mary and Saint Dominic are just hanging out doing their own thing. This feels like it could be a good metaphor for life sometimes.
Planning out winter holiday celebrations. We do a number of different celebrations, which spaces things out and makes them calmer. I also like the years we can get organized and make sure to read and sing together every night in December. I am working to find us some Cree songs to sing and in other years we have really enjoyed the book "The Return of the Light: Twelve Tales from Around the World for the Winter Solstice" so I plan to start with that book. Sometimes I think I like planning for the holidays more than the actual holidays and try to give myself lots of time to enjoy the process.
