A buffoon has formally become the head of one of our two major political parties and will be running for the top job. This is the week to despair for the sanity of my country. So here are a few reminders on how to live well, or at least try, and do as little damage to the rest of humanity as possible.
Two. Any crisis, real or imagined, has me running to sofagirl for advice, in a flurry of Skype sessions, whatsapp messages and emails. I value her advice. But what if we turned the question inward, whenever we are stuck, and asked ourselves “what would you tell your best friend to do if she were in the same situation?”. You would be surprised how objectivity and love get immediately injected in the thinking process (found on Austin Kleon).
Four. If Bernie Sanders ran this video as a campaign ad, he would clinch the nomination.
Five. Many, way too many, on social media have expressed, more or less politely, their sentiment that, at 69, Susan Sarandon should cover her bits. I, on the other hand, applaud how comfortable she seems to be with her body.
