READING THIS WEEK...
I am fascinated with Andy Cohen. The more I learn about him, the more I realize he's a genius. This NY Times article on him is a long read, but well worth the time.
I've read a few self-care articles lately and these are my favorites:
- Self-Care Will Be More Important Than Ever In The Age Of Trump - Sara Benincasa
- How to #StayOutraged Without Losing Your Mind - Mirah Curzer
Cheryl Strayed's field notes from the Women's March on Washington.
Solange by Beyonce.
WATCHING AND LISTENING...

The day of the inauguration, I listened to the entire podcast series, Making Oprah. It helped. It also reminded me that every thought I've ever had, Oprah had 30 years ago. When I finished the podcast, I watched this surprise Oprah flash mob and cried.
