Unsurprisingly, my favorite piece from my trip to the Blanton with @cm1753 today is by Yayoi Kusama, titled Sprouting (The Transmigration of the Soul).
It’s a snow (ice) day here in Austin, so all the roomies are home, wrapped in blankets and eating chocolate chip pancakes (I made them from scratch! 💁🏼♀️) and drinking hot coffee. Everyone stay safe out there! ❄️💕
Gretel likes to act like she is so unloved, but in reality she is the most spoiled pupper in all the land.
It’s been a very long week. It hasn’t been bad, just long—but at least tonight is my first shift back at one of my favorite places after a month off (with one of my favorite people @cm1753). 📚💕✨
“When I was a boy, I used to wonder where my mother came from, how she got on this earth. When I asked her where she was from, she would say, ‘God made me,’ and change the subject. When I asked her if she was white, she’d say, ‘No. I’m light-skinned,’ and change the subject again. Answering questions about her personal history did not jibe with Mommy’s view of parenting twelve curious, wild, brown-skinned children.” || Reading (and really loving) THE COLOR OF WATER by James McBride for #icymibookclub this month. We’ll be back at BookPeople on Wednesday, January 17th from 7-8 PM to discuss this great book and you should totally come!
Got dressed up and ate a lot of good food with a cute boy. 😊
