Downton Abbey

2 years ago, for day 269 by cat

Is it just my group of friends and I ? But we love attempting to speak with a British accent. Our favourite is the posh classy boarding school one. The Queen's English. This obsession goes way back to high school, when we were such geeks over Harry Potter. I think...

Dharma not Drama

2 years ago, for day 266 by cat

That Peach Scone track is still on repeat this morning as I type this. It may seem I have a goal of memorising it, which is so much harder to do when this kind of effort has stopped being a habit. The Lost Art of Memorisation and Remembering. The reason...

RIP Daniel Johnston

2 years ago, for day 264 by cat

Fan-girling all over Midsommar director, Ari Aster's Twitter led me to learn of Daniel Johnston's passing. I'm only now absorbing this piece of news. One thing I feel especially lucky about is how former loves have really opened my world to the discovery of things. Of new music, authors, works...

You've Got Mail

2 years ago, for day 260 by cat

Things that are dead or dying that I'm still a sucker for: Hand-written letters Long e-mails Looking at the whole picture Diaries Conversations with strangers Honouring things at face value I re-watched "You've Got Mail" a couple of days ago. Nora Ephron's writing is...

A Save Point

2 years ago, for day 259 by cat

I'm happy about the progress I've made with my freelancing work. I've got a rhythm lately. It's a little bit backward of me to come to this realisation now (two months in), especially because I read about habits and productivity all the time — but when I went "rogue" and...

Start Right Now

2 years ago, for day 258 by cat

Those words hold true and are relevant to my mindfulness practice as well as my writing practice. I've been looking for a new blogging community that challenges me, but also reminds me to begin again. I feel like this could be it. I must sheepishly (cheekily) confess, I'm still on...
