We started watching Master of None this week just like the rest of the world and are loving it. I also really resonated with this article that Aziz Ansari wrote about race and acting, and his Facebook post about how his father took time off to act in the show.
I find Cheryl Strayed endlessly inspiring, and this interview with her on the Longform Podcast was particularly good.

“Every piece of art I’ve ever made was because I saw bad and could do better, or saw great and needed to catch up.” Problems of output are problems of input.

Who wants pumpkin pie in a mug??? (All of us. Everyone.)
I’m taking this Skillshare class on Creative Nonfiction Writing and it’s really good. My notes are copious. I should be writing instead, but hey.
I had a great week. I’m so enjoying my online work and teaching yoga classes, and of course eating solid food again. I feel connected to my loved ones and am remembering to step away from my computer to go for walks or adventures. We had two awesome adventures this week: a daytrip to Quilotoa, a lake inside the crater of a volcano, and we went to the Ecuador vs. Uruguay World Cup qualifier game and Ecuador won! This weekend we’re doing yoga in the park and relaxing big time. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
