AT THE TIG Substack, we circle quantum manifestation. An intriguing notion: “Similarly, we exist in a superposition of probable realities until we consciously choose to observe or energise one into being.” Observing my thoughts, I find negative ones often appear unbidden and work to banish these from consciousness, trying instead to envision desired outcomes. Despite all there is to be grateful for, cultivating lasting gratitude remains an ongoing struggle, though one I commit to each new year. Currently reading Joan Didion’s Slouching Towards Bethlehem, and as always, inspired by her minimalist, introspective style. Especially amusing is the description of San Bernardino as “…the country of the teased hair and the Capris and the girls for whom all life’s promise comes down to a waltz-length white wedding dress and the birth of a Kimberly or a Sherry or a Debbi and a Tijuana divorce and a return to hairdressers’ school.” Also watched Past Lives this weekend, after P has mentioned it in passing and then reading about Sofia Coppola liking it in an interview in FT. I’ve always said to P that in all of our past lives and all of our future ones, if such a thing exists, we would find each other again and again.
Also forgot to mention last week, that if you like using Flipboard to read articles, we’re a publisher there now as well, so can you add us here.
This week’s links include David Hockney’s Drawing from Life; and the quest for the perfect bagel; the best eye recovery masks and hyaluronic serum; a perfect twill trench coat for autumn days, and much, much more.
