This week has been a normal week-in-the-life. Some weeks have super-fun elements to them and some weeks are just regular, you know? This week was a regular one.
Brady started doing photo-illustration mash-ups like the one above, though, and I’m loving them. Oman looks a lot like Tatooine, so I’m sure this isn’t the last time Jawas will sneak into my photographs. About that happy I am.
In related news, they’ve begun casting the new Star Wars. Though nothing is official, rumor has it that Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill will all be returning. Another rumor? Landon from Friday Night Lights might make an appearance, too.
Then there was that missing plane. I don’t follow news stories 24-7, but Brady loved the movie-like way the whole thing has been unfolding. Me? I like it when someone speaks sense. (Even if the alternative is quite likely.)
The most challenging thing I read this week was “Schopenhauer on Style.” Schopenhauer’s postulations on clear thinking and good communicating are right, I suspect. But to live them would require an amount of focus I remain without. Borrowing a Schopenhauer quote from Popova’s article,
Truth that is naked is the most beautiful, and the simpler its expression the deeper is the impression it makes…
An article definitely worth reading, even if you have to bring a dictionary to the party.
What’d you enjoy this week?
