And all is well.
I also spent over an hour lying on a blanket in my backyard looking up at the avocado tree leaves and blue sky. At one point a large bird flew into the tree. I think it was some sort of hawk, but I couldn't see its head so I'm not sure. When I moved to try to see it better, it flew away.
All in all, it was a good day off.
It was a nice end to a busy week. I don't have many links for you this week because it was so busy. I don't have any links about the mess in Washington this week. But I will share what actions I plan to take this weekend:
I found another voting rights organization to donate to: Spread the Vote. I like what they're doing, so I'm going to give them some money. Yes, Vote Riders is doing something similar. I think both organizations are worth supporting.
I will also be writing postcards for a state house campaign in Florida.
Here's what I got for your reading pleasure this weekend:
I almost always read what David Roberts writes about climate... and his summary of Jay Inslee's climate plan is worth your time.
This comic about the author's favorite Filipino food is really good.
I need to go to see this new art installation in Paso Robles.
I love Rhiannon Giddens' music, and this profile is as good as her music.
This thread is heartbreaking:
