Today’s thank you goes to a friend who posted a link to an article about cognitive science, linguistics, and the rise of Donald Trump on Facebook. I found it genuinely useful, so I said thank you.
It is Saturday, and I managed to get myself over to a ceramics studio and throw a pot on the wheel. It is important, I think, to do these fun things even when I’m busy with bigger, more stressful responsibilities. Working on pottery is actually very soothing. It’s like any repetitive movement – rocking in a rocking chair, knitting, etc. Those activities all make you feel pretty chill.
There were thunderstorms again today, and I am beginning to wonder if they are a frequent occurrence in this part of the country. I don’t mind them, but I’m not used to getting them so often.
