Five things to be cheerful about this Monday

1 // A newly borrowed library book

The Wanderers by Meg Howrey

2 //This quote

As soon as we conform anything to language we have changed it. Use a word, and you’ve altered the world. The poets know this. It’s what they try so hard to avoid.
– from A Doubter’s Almanac (last weeks library book)

3 //Interesting conversations

In the company of women

4 // The moon lists

I can’t remember how I came across these originally. But I have had fun wandering through the archives of them all.

Recent favourites include Emma Lipp

and Su Wu

5 // Good places to eat in Wellington

I’m off to a conference in our capital city in a couple of weeks and I am loving finding new (to me) places to eat whilst I am there.

  • Wonderful list, and I really loved that quote by Su Wu – off now to find out more about her!

    • Yeah, it’s a good one. There’s some really interesting contributors to the moon lists. I’ve been wandering off on juicy little paths of discovery from it.
