Hello, friends! How was your week? I spent half of it cooped up inside avoiding 120 kph winds and rain. But I also found time for a princess-themed party (wine from a teapot!), a conference for NGO techies and a book club meeting.
I imagine that deep down (waaaaay deep down) most parents have a gender preference for their baby. I appreciated Cup of Jo’s candor about how she felt when she discovered she was having a boy.
I’m thinking of switching from blogspot to wordpress in the foreseeable future. Kyla Roma dishes on her favorite wordpress plugins. (Have any of you guys switched? Did you do it yourself? How hard was it?)
I love Cat On A Hot Tin Roof – and obviously want to live in it. (Personal sidenote: There was a time in my life when I couldn’t decide if I should move to the Deep South or Asia. I decided to move to Asia after reading everything Tennessee Williams ever wrote.)
Intriguing! Safe And Sexy documents women in the public space in two modes; one for comfort, one for attraction. Through portraits, interviews and audio, I explore how social conventions, economic structures, personal history and location shape our visual and psychological landscape. This seemingly simplistic approach invokes a complex dialogue on the layered realities of individuals navigating a terrain of vulnerability, power, comfort and attraction.
Also! Yes and Yes-er Jacqueline is going to this Yoga, Surf and Volunteer Retreat (!) in Nicaragua. It’s only $850 for a week – she’s looking for 8 other people to join her. Are you interested? I would be! Monty’s Beach lodge is a surfing retreat in the village of Jiquillio, Nicaragua. This retreat gives back to the local village by donating a portion of proceeds to the local school, medical center and more. This retreat offers two yoga classes a day, an opportunity to surf and some amazing outings: an estuary mangrove tour, deep sea fishing, wildlife reserve tours and a volcano tour. You can even sand board down the volcano! Proceeds benefit the local clinic, community center, schools and a women’s cooperative. if you’re interested, email her at jacquelinesaxby AT gmail DOT com

I believe that everyone and everything is interesting. Also: there are few things that cat videos + cheese can’t cure. You too? Let’s dance!
