No one say a word… I don’t want to know how Downton Abbey ends. I’ll watch it tomorrow, but until then I have to avoid spoilers.
It was a very busy week here on the blog. When I had the idea of adding an hour or two of happy to my day, I seriously underestimated the time and effort it would take to blog about it.
Luckily, I am still having a great time. I’m pleased to have done the things I have done and seen the things that I’ve seen. It has made for an interesting year already. It’s nice to get some of the clutter of “maybe one days” out of my head and replace them with “that was funs!”
I’m learning a lot too. Several of you have shared information that have helped me on the journey. Some of you have been generous and said that I have inspired you to get out more.
To all of you that have followed along and taken time to see what I’m up to, thank you, I’m grateful.
#11, Attend ten museum exhibits, 4/10
This week I visited the Frank Gehry exhibit at LACMA. It’s leaving on March 20, so I wanted to make sure I caught it. If you get a chance to see it, make sure you allow an hour to see the film. It gives you great insight into Gehry’s personality and is directed by his friend Sydney Pollack. Also, if you visit after 3pm on a weekday, it is only $10 to see the exhibit.
#364, Do a Weekly Photo Shoot 10/52
#211, Listen to a Weekly Podcast, 10/52
This week I listened to Cheryl Alters Jamison on Heating it Up, a podcast I found on SantaFe.com, from KVSF 101.1. Cheryl discusses the new book “Tacos: Recipes and Provocations”, by New York Chef Alex Stupak and writer Jordana Rothman.
# 57, Buy 10 Cookbooks, 2/10
I was interested in the above podcast, because I had just purchased the book they were discussing. How could I not? Taco is my favorite word.
#127, Perform a Weekly Random Act of Kindness, 10/52
This week when I was at Da Poetry Lounge, I offered to watch the belongings of people who were waiting in line when I overheard them say that they needed to find a restroom. It wasn’t a big deal, but I could have said nothing and they would have been tap dancing while we waited.
#14, Watch one Annenberg Iris Series Lecture each week, 10/52
This week I watched Paul Colangelo’s presentation, Voices From the Wild. He is a conservation photographer from Canada, but he is doing amazing work around the world.
Check it out. P.S. I hope you like snakes.
#21, Try a new restaurant each week, 10/52
This week while I was in Santa Barbara, attending the Sebastiao Salgado lecture, we ate at Carlitos Cafe y Cantina. It was lovely to sit outside at twilight in early March, sipping a blood orange margarita and eating stuffed Anaheim chiles and posole.
