Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 15.07.19

THIS WEEKEND WE watched the Wimbledon finals, and Sunday’s match, between Federer and Djokovic, was especially exhilarating and ultimately heartbreaking (Federer forever). The weather has finally turned summery and I’m all billowy white dresses and espadrilles these days. The roses in all the English gardens have begun to fade, but everything is lush and green as it always is at this time of year, the height of summertime, when the days are hazy and you can almost hear the clouds float by. We still have so much to tell about these past few months of change and renewal, but for now, it’s nice to step back a little from everything, safe in the cosiness of the cottage and breathe. Also began a new book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, which has provided much to think about…

This week’s links include three Greek restaurants in Paris to try this summer and a recipe for fishcakes with cucumber salad and carrot dip; the difference between anxiety and stress; how a small minority can change the world, and much, much more.
