We made it to December apparently. I have been dreading December for the last 12 years, since I started working in the culinary industry, for obvious reasons having to do with parties, attended by others and catered by people like me. Hopefully, this will be the last December full of such commitments. Here a few things that kept me going this week.
Two. Finally one win for team USA! After a whole year of being represented around the world by an orange moron, a young woman makes us look good. I had never seen LA native Meghan Markle (or her show) before but in the post engagement to Prince Harry interview she comes across as lovely, down to earth and crazy in love. Or else she is a fantastic actress, and please give her an Oscar. So, now, in America too we can use the British Monarchy to cheer ourselves up.
Three. If you are an artist in need of some boost, this Neil Gaiman speech is for you (thank you to Leonor for passing it along).
Four. And if reading about amazing people changing the world is what does it for you, this man is an inspiration.
