Happy May Day, gang.
After waking up convinced it was Friday for the last three days, I'm awfully glad to be finally there. It was a hard week: One of my favorite people's dad passed away, which is something I can't quite begin to imagine. It's made me think a lot about the experience of grieving—how different it can be for everyone—and what, as someone on the outside of it, can be helpful. I'm still not sure, except for just being there. Just making yourself available and open. And sometimes saying "I'm so sorry" and sometimes saying "This sucks." So, this weekend: make sure to order your mom's Mother's Day gift and text your dad about a podcast he'd like. And this weekend, I hope you'll buy yourself some flowers.
Around the internet this week:
Shopping at Anthropologie with Marie Kondo.
I'm Not Okay and That's Okay. So brave and so beautiful.
The Poetic Life of the Lowly Eel.
As someone who's gone from owning no sneakers to three pairs of Vans in less than six months, I loved this interview with the owners of a women's only sneaker store.
Choose better words.
Important: how to help Nepal.
Have a good weekend.
