This was the week I allowed myself to be super lazy. That meant, by and large, spending 99% of my time away from all my electronic devices. And the internet. So I am relying on the kindness of friends for this issue of 5 things. Thank you Eddie and Sue, whose FB pages are often a source of inspiration and/or laughter. Sometimes outrage.
Have a great weekend. While back at work, I am planning to turn on my new, do nothing, default mode.
One. This went viral so chances are you have seen it already. I am re-posting it here because Target is one of those places I feel very ambivalent about. If you shop at Target, or if you have ever visited once, you will know what I mean: it can be great, it can be downright terrible and I have often wandered through the aisle and encountered bizarre humanity. Here is proof (http://www.refinery29.com/2016/09/122002/target-first-work-week-documentation) from someone who worked there and documented a week of work.
Two. What I wish my teacher knew was started by a smart teacher in Denver, wishing to better understand her pupils. Again, it went viral, and many teachers have imitated this exercise. Reading through the painfully honest answers can be heartbreaking.
Three. I am still laughing.
Four. The setting is a flower parade in the Netherlands. The Scultpures entirely made of flowers are downright beautiful.
Five. For LA readers. If you are a fan of Francis Bacon and/or Lucian Freud, London Calling at the Getty Center is the exhibition for you. While most of the visitors were jamming the Chinese caves paintings exhibit, I got stirred by Bacon and soothed by Freud. And delighted in some of their lesser known contemporaries.
