One Sky, Two Poems, and a Book Bingo Card

This round, a quick turn away from the climate change sadnesses of the world to look at a few lovely things.

I love this project (h/t Austin Kleon’s newsletter) — 88 artists all over the world looked up all at 12:00pm Eastern Standard and drew the sky. One Sky.

Two poems I thoroughly enjoyed: “Truck Carrying Live Eels Overturns on Highway 101” from Rattle’s Poets Respond project, and “Page One” by Joannie Stangeland.

And in case you were wondering, here’s how my Summer Book Bingo played out. Shy of a full blackout but got 2 bingos and as always, great reading fun. My favorite reads: Connie Willis’s short stories (amazeballs), Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo (just delightful), and Calamities by Renee Gladman (fascinating). Oh and Four Seasons in Rome by Anthony Doerr (so well written). You Think That’s Bad by Jim Shepard blew my mind too now that I think about it. Then too there was Sacre Bleu (hilarious) and Citizen (essential) (can you get more polar opposite than those?). As always, thanks for Seattle Public Library and Seattle Arts & Lectures for such a fun thing.
