Another #postvember feat: @bonstewart, contrafabulists, bon iver, the thirsty beaver, and other heavy stuff
Bonnie Stewart showed up on Saturday and seeing her is always invigorating – she is one of our oldest friends and we owe a lot of who we’ve become to her generosity and awesomeness over the years.
She wrote this piece yesterday which is a pretty great read (of course).
Our early morning podcast listening life has now moved on to the contrafabulists – you should check it out if you care at all about educational technology.
Going to see Bon Iver tonight in Charlotte which should be pretty great – I grabbed some extra cash today cause I’m hoping to pick up some vinyl.
Went to the Thirsty Beaver on Saturday night – it is one of the truest forms of what one could call “development activism” I have seen anywhere – if you ever make it to the neighbourhood, you should defo drop in.
Working on a few “fun” projects right now, a defo fave is an entry (or two?) for a GIF competition – you should join in as well :)
This weekend I swear to get back to making activist bracelets – moving, travels, and travel stuff the past couple months has really delayed a lot of stuff I want to keep working on.
Our house really does look great now that all the rooms are almost done – will post pics soon.
In my first #postvember, I talked about how hard it is sometimes to type even a few sentences with what is happening in the world and with yesterday’s shooting in Sutherland Springs it feels much harder now.
For what it’s worth, I think now is EXACTLY the time this country gets “political” about gun regulations and do ANYTHING to at least further limit access to guns – its clearly a really complex situation and would take forever to regulate, but this country really needs to do something.
