10 Thoughts on Friday links

    I just wanted to sincerely thank everyone for their kind and supportive replies to my comment yesterday. They meant a lot and I took every one of them to heart. Kim, I also want you to know that your blog (and all of the wonderful comment contributors) has provided a much needed daily respite from this chaos and I have read it every day, even on my worst days. And it adds a tiny bit of sunshine on those worst days. Thank you everyone. One last and most important thing….the returning trend of pleated pants need to go into a dumpster fire. They flatter no one.

      I concur, Mindy! And wishing you and your daughter only the best.

    I logged on this morning (I log on every weekday morning!) to say how much I appreciated yesterdays sharing. I don’t think we’ll know the true cost of this pandemic for years, but what I read yesterday gives me a glimpse. While there was much sadness, grief and struggle posted I was also heartened by what an amazingly strong, resilient group of women post here and that does me so much good. (and I agree with you, Mindy, about effing pleated pants)

    I love the British TV recommendations, although, gotta say, I’ve seen almost all of them. Hurry up and create more, Brits! Loved the dance piece, too. Gwyneth – so predictable. Thanks for the links, Kim! Looking forward to another round of Tina and Amy via The Golden Globes.

    Love the ballet link and the British recommendations! Gwyneth, not so much!

    A great collection of links, Kim. The conversation between Roxanne Gay and Monica Lewinsky was one of the most interesting things I’ve read in a while. And just wanted to second your comment about “Promising Young Woman.” Definitely a must-see.

    Loved learning this morning about the Fuggerei. Yes to safe, comfortable, dignified housing for ALL! (Maybe without the daily prayers.) Can you imagine a banker doing something like this today?

    The photos in the father-daughter collaboration are gorgeous. And at the same time I can’t help remembering my discomfort at Sally Mann’s descriptions of her collaborations with her son in Hold Still. I never felt he could fully consent to her & it seemed somewhat narcissistic. I worried that in her efforts to make the art, she forgot the child.

      Yeah Kristina, Sally Mann’s work can be problematic on that front.
