30 Things I Loved in September [2016]


(1) A turn in the weather, ever so slight. | (2) Discovering viable drafts of work I had not forgotten, exactly, but that I had nearly forsaken. | (3) Ironing. | (4) All Over but the Shoutin’ by Rick Bragg. | (5) Talking books with my soon-to-be MIL. | (6) Being of use. | (7) Cambria, as a default font. | (8) “When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer” by Uncle Walt. | (9) Gracious  friends, like MN, who are generous with their time and expertise. | (10) “The Disappeared” by Charles Baxter. | (11) “I Didn’t Understand How to Erase Our City” by Ben Gunsberg (speaking of gracious, generous friends). | (12) Talking about stories. | (13) The flipside to #2 above: discovering that work I once thought viable is really not that interesting anymore. | (14) The possibility that the flipside will once again flip. | (15) 100,000 Poets for Change. | (16) In Migration by Daniel Blokh. | (17) Baked sweet potatoes. | (18) Google classroom. | (19) Collaboration. | (20) Mikey’s. | (21) Raw jalapeńos on a Five Guys cheeseburger.
