Friday Things Considered

My Boston kids are on lockdown and I’m locked on to news sites again.  What a crazy, distressing week this has been.

I’ve been so grateful for peaceable things this week, including several walks through Mountain View cemetery where I saw how the quality of light can change everything.  Like the way this stone angel’s face shone as the sun came up and how its wings were bathed in a rainbow of color as the sun set. In a week where dark things held sway, I relished other light-shedding offerings like:

1. Dove’s continuing campaign to help us recognize our own beauty.

2. Tributes from their grown kids to great moms.

3. David Sedaris on buying a stuffed owl.

4. Camping images that made me breathe a little easier.

5. And, just for fun, Patton Oswalt’ s unedited Starwars filibuster from Parks and Recreation.
