On Tuesday, my husband’s podiatrist told us she got her flu shot. Somehow, that fills me with hope for 2021. So do these awesome articles:
- This one made me cry. The video is too echo-y. Scroll down and read the essay.
- Writer’s playlist.
- When we can travel again, maybe we can go to Mexico.
- This article from 2018 may help you set your creative goals for 2021.
- 12-year-old Jesus didn’t have all the answers.
- Interesting shots.
- Everything I know about physicist Richard Feynman I learned from watching The Big Bang Theory. I didn’t know he liked to draw.
- Good advice. And some not as good. And some I don’t understand.
- These signs made me laugh.
- There are reasons why you shouldn’t drive drunk, and there are reasons why you shouldn’t sing drunk. But they’re not the same reasons. Apparently, singing drunk is great fun, and nobody dies. Read about the Australian Pub Choir.
- A quilter shares the 17 quilts she made in 2020.
- This is an interesting idea: praying with index cards.
Thank you to Betty Mason Arthurs for this caroling story.
