Happy Labor Day Weekend! I had a lovely week working with some fantastic kids in the city. I love Manhattan in summer. People still are scurrying back and forth to the next important thing, but they linger in the sunshine, or peer over stands of fruit and secondhand books, and let their children stop to pet the pampered dogs paddling behind their owners.
I spent the weekend so far catching up with friends. Being part of the Boomerang Generation, (at least for a little longer) it’s nice to rekindle some of my friendships from high school and see how everyone’s life is.
I hope you’re having a lackadaisical Labor Day, too! Enjoy the week’s links:
- I love Joanna Goddard’s series of interviews about parenting around the world – How other cultures approach childrearing is really interesting
- FlavorWire shows off some beautiful writers’ studios. Better than my typing on my phone on the train!
- Yum. My Italian blood wants this gluten-free buckwheat gnocchi!
- Public hot springs are a big part of Japanese culture. How does that affect body image?
- Twelve words that prove bookworms are living a better life
- How to stay active while working at a cubicle, aka sedentary species problems
- Did you catch Neil Gaiman’s ALS challenge? He challenged George RR Martin in response! Lovely to see how my favorite authors react to being covered in ice water!
Have an lazy, languid, luxurious Labor Day weekend!
