Each Monday, I try to offer my own “mixed tape” of anything I feel like sharing with you in one fell swoop: books, articles, personal happenings, podcasts, songs, etc. Here is my random mix of the week.
::The book Escargot by Dashka Slater is my new favorite, a story about a french snail who likes a particular kind of salad. The humor reminds me a bit of the “Marcel the Shell” books which I also love.
::There is only about a week left of the NPR Tiny Desk Contest. I was excited to see that The Singer and the Songwriter submitted a song again this year. I love the poetry in this song, the singer’s voice, and the beautiful guitar playing.
::I like this song by JJ Heller “It’ll Be Alright.”
::Lastly, I appreciated the refreshing perspective Andrea Burke gave in her article “The One Life Dream That Makes A Girl Blush.”
