I just got into a mini-argument about whether or not I had actually heard Arvo Part’s “Spiegel Im Spiegel” before, and because I know y’all care about the result of said argument, I came out on top. Because it is in the movie Elegy.
Here are the recommended links of the week:
- As someone who used to be a fashion blogger, and who has, in the past, gotten into heated discussions about bloggers like Jane Aldridge, I enjoyed this piece by Alice Marwick about authenticity, class disparities, and fashion blogging. (via Ann Friedman)
- I’ve been told to make this recipe for Hủ Tiếu Mì, but have not done so yet. However, I received this recipe from someone who is quite the expert on Vietnamese food, and so I feel comfortable recommending it to the chefs among you.
- Teri’s recent post about taking a pause from writing — especially after finishing a long writing project — rang so very true to me.
- Beth’s “recipe posts” are never really recipe posts to me. Which is especially true about this post about buttermilk beignets — it’s about New Orleans, why it’s such an important place to her, and what it represents. (Note to self: write my own post about New Orleans.)
- There were so many things on the Internet on 9/11 about 9/11. This one, by Amanda of The Wink, might have made me cry the most.
- I’ve been debating for weeks about whether or not to buy this $10 set of bokeh backgrounds. Maybe you want them.
And, briefly: don’t forget that early-bird registration for Rawness of Remembering: Restorative Journaling Through Difficult Times ends tomorrow; 10% of early-bird proceeds go to SOLVE. My interview with SOLVE coordinator, Terri Byrne, is in this post.
Enjoy your weekends, darlings! Get some fresh air and read a good book.
