What I’m reading : The Disease of Being Busy by Omid Safi

What I’m listening to: You Say “eye-RACK,” I Say “ear-ROCK by Tell Me Something I Don’t Know

What I’m watching: The Avenger movies with my son. I didn’t realise the first Iron Man (in this Marvel series) was released in 2008 when he 2 years old. And did you know that the first Thor movie (in the same franchise) came out in 2011! 

A quote I’m pondering on: Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. — Lao Tzu

Go see: Beatriz at Dinner — This film is promising but has a strange ending that I found lacked any kind of redemption. Selma Hayek is fantastic and the discomfort it creates is worth a watch.

What I’m reading : Ugh I haven’t read anything new! I have yet to finish Homo Deus. I have no excuse but to say I’ve been busy which basically means it’s not a priority. I know.

What I’m listening to: Clutter by The Minimalist Podcast

What I’m watching: Australian Survivor - Don’t judge, it’s highly entertaining and I feel that the Aussies are not as harsh with each other as the Americans. Jonathan LaPaglia does a stellar job as the host. I do keep getting his name confused with his brother Anthony. I’d rather watch this show than The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Cringe.

A quote I’m pondering on: “There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.” — George Sands

Go see: Logan - I only managed to see this on a plane. It’s a tad violent but that not a surprise but was is remarkable is that this is a profoundly hopeful film.

What I’m reading : I’ve been away and haven’t had a chance to read anything at all. I haven’t even completed Homo Deus yet! This is probably a boring, empty post but the highlight was the captivating movie I saw.

Go see: God’s Own Country - This is an exceptional film. Breathtaking, beautiful, tender and so heart-wrenchingly honest. I’m lost for words. Go see it.

A quote I’m pondering on: “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.”— Seth Godin
