Things that filled my cup in August
oooh- what juicy links! Can’t wait to have a look at that videoooo. 😍
Thank you for a snapshot of your life. August included house/pet sitting, visiting my parents, helping my kid deal with a mildewed college apartment and staining decks. A bit too full but it had moments of clarity and pockets of creativity. ❤️
Heartstopper is so tender & wonderful, and yes, the graphic novels are even better! There is so much media that I wish had existed when I was growing up. I put myself into boxes that I didn’t really have to, but things were just different.
I am a HUGE Patricia Clarkson fan and I can’t wait to read the article and learn more about her sexy ass life! I always sensed she was a ‘kindred spirit’ for me! And the idea of grief at the end of a creative project makes a lot of sense to me - I trained as a specialist in The Grief Recovery Method and we are all experiencing unresolved grief from loss in lives, big AND small, and a lot of it due to the little losses we don’t recognize as such. I’m excited to look at every juicy link in this post!! This feels like a great way to post on Substack for you!
Thanks for this insight Susannah, it’s good to see you back 💕. And I think nothing in life is wasted, it makes us who we are today..... big hugs 🤗
I somehow missed your last post, so got a two-for-one mega deal ☺️ This is sort of how I’m thinking my newsletters will be, things I’m noticing, reading about, watching. And then some of my art and studio stuff thrown in as well 😄 PS: I love the idea of a womb space in the house 💜
I haven't watched season 2 of Heartstopper yet, but have read the books and seen season 1—in which there was a dance scene that me absolutely bawl because of the queer joy of it all. Part of me feels sad that media like this didn't exist when I was the age of these characters, but the bigger part of me is so relieved for the generations behind mine that they get to see themselves reflected in pop culture.
Now I am going to have to watch Heartstopper :-)
I like this Freudian slip: “floor to ceiling book selves.” Xx
Thanks for the fun inspiring links to explore and loved the studio video!
