Happy Friday! It's ACL time here in Austin, which for those not from these part, is a gigantic live music festival. Are we going? No. But this year we are going to an ACL party. So we're getting closer to that rebirth in our lives when we start doing fun stuff like this again.
Here's my five for the week:
1) Read and finished Everlost by Neal Shusterman. Great book. The more I turned the pages, the more I loved it. And I'm happy to learn a sequel is in the works! If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it.
2) Reading The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine by April Lurie. I didn't want to put this down last night, but seeing as how I knew 6:00am would roll around quickly, I did. It's fantastic, great! Love this book! Totally you should read it.
3) And since we're on the subject of books, I'm headed to the bookstore today for some birthday gifts. And, well, since I'm there, I may as well get myself a few new books, too. I plan to pick up Feed by M. T. Anderson and Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr.
4) I totally did not give Sheri credit for her fabulous photo I posted on Wednesday. I think it's because I nabbed it from her blog so long ago. OK, sometime over the summer. Sheri took the photo of the shadow of the window on the Berber carpet.
5) Yet again, mythology pops up everywhere. In Kung Fu this morning while doing mountain climbers I made a joke about having to go back to the bottom of the hill and push the rock up again to which someone quickly "got" my reference and continued on with the Sisyphus joke. If you don't know who Sisyphus is, he's the guy in Hell who has to push the rock to the top of the hill, watch it roll down, and push it up again. Over and over. Hence never-ending tasks are often referred to as Sisyphean tasks.
And how's that for a mythology lesson for the day?
Have a great, fun, inspiring weekend!
