How are you?
It’s June with a vengeance. With warmer temps and thicker wildfire smoke than I can remember in Alaska’s history, it’s one for the books. And movies. And podcasts.
Due to the long and lovely summer days, I still have 6 hours of bright sunlight to enjoy after I get off work at 5:30PM.
Here are a few of the books, podcasts, and movies I’ve filled those hours with. And I’d love to hear what art you’ve been enjoying.
Alaska, Unsolved A new podcaster digs up the cold case of Erin Marie Gilbert who went missing from a crowded festival here without a trace in 1995.
The Creative Penn Podcast So filled with energy and ideas for writers.
Poms-Though the reviews were terrible, and the start was weak, this was a sweet film about friendship and aging.
Late Night– Another terrific film that addresses aging and being marginalized.
Yesterday– Such an original story, and a terrific escape.
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy my Audible subscription since giving up cable TV? It’s terrific to be read to again.
Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro. A gracious memoir about family and love.
(pictured to the right of the image by Pieces of Me in 2/19 for the glorious days mine was a bestseller)
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park (paperback). Gorgeous storytelling. I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
