Read­ing

I’m read­ing a book called Luster by Raven Leilani for The So­cial Chap­ter book club. Also, Terry McMil­lan’s Who Asked You? and I just started Diane Keaton’s lat­est mem­oir Brother & Sis­ter. The other book I’m about to start is For­ever Terry, edited by Terry Fox’s brother, Dar­rell — he’s shared prom­i­nent Cana­dian’s sto­ries on how Terry has im­pacted their lives, and in­cluded sto­ries about his brother.

Lis­ten­ing to

It’s my old-school tunes that are get­ting me through these days — Mo­town, ev­ery­thing from Diana Ross & the Supremes, The Temp­ta­tions and Lionel Richie, as well as artists like Barry Manilow, Stephanie Mills, and Nas. It’s mostly 50s, 60s and some 70s mu­sic, which all soothe my soul. My sis­ter is seven years older than me, so her mu­sic is my mu­sic, and it’s now my kids’ mu­sic, too.

Watch­ing

I just got into Gil­more Girls and Sweet Mag­no­lias. I also just fin­ished binge-watch­ing Um­brella Academy. And bas­ket­ball — that al­ways gives me life.
