Welcome to September!
You may have heard NYC got a bit of rain this week. Fortunately, My apartment wasn’t damaged. I had to help my basement neighbors clean up some flooding but all things considered, we got off easy.
Writer and Georgia native, Amanda Mull captured my day-after feelings perfectly: it was beautiful, but unsettling. Though maybe that has as much to do with the contrast of stress and relief once the danger has passed as it does with the actual weather itself. You can smell fall in the air now.
This week’s offerings are a nice, tight mix: If you need a shot of beauty in your life, try the profile I wrote on Geraldine Yang, the dyer behind The Wandering Flock. I’m really happy with how it came out, and I’m a huge fan of Geraldine’s work. Or you could head to the New Releases gallery. There are some real stunners this week.
The link roundup is full of articles and interviews that will set your noggin’ a joggin’. I would beg you specifically to read Tamara Kneese’s piece in Real Life Mag because I want to talk with people about it, but that’s true for all of them!
See you in the Discord?
