Wow, look at this picture of those fires, +James Sena !
 
Towering "fire clouds" (pyrocumulus) erupt over wildfires in California and Oregon. http://t.co/KS8qxH4cRk

Life, it is crazy!  Scrambing through last minute packing for May Crown AND for a week away on business.  Officially start new job on Monday at client-site in DC, but have been doing prep-work for it all week.  SO happy final checks came in today from old job, that makes things a LOT better than it was shaping up to be.  

Have 2 pots of soup simmering away on the stove, 1 for leftovers for the week for my husband, 1 to bring to crown for dinner tonight.  Laundry's probably ready to be shifted.  I... this is nuts, no time, too much to do!  Shuttle bus to the airport leaves 5am Sunday morning.  Sleep is for the weak!

I feel the need to share these for multiple people in my life...

This is super powerful... Mary Lambert - Body Love (Part 1 & 2)  -- spoken word over music about body image and being worth more than some other's outside opinion of you.  Not sure if it could be trigger-y for some, but is very powerful and affirming, in the end.

And for a pick-me-up after that, this one always makes me happy: Mary Lambert - She Keeps Me Warm (2013 Version)

Dear +Richard Branson,

I've been paying a bit of attention to you recently. I've seen that you're interested in the importance of #Storytelling , and that you've been helping Sam Branson encourage people to literally go the distance and reach new heights with the STRIVE challenge. You're focused on innovation, trying new things, and pushing into the future.

So am I.

I am a graduate student, currently working on my Masters degree in English, as well as a published writer in several genres. Fantasy, Steampunk, Science Fiction, Horror - I like each severally, but I especially like mixing them together to develop new connections, to find new stories to tell and new elements to express from old stories.

As part of both this interest and my studies, I've been accepted to a summer semester at Oxford University, to study the Oxford Fantasists. It's an exciting prospect - and funding it almost had me stop myself before I even applied. But it's an opportunity I refused to not throw myself at, and I've got the chance to go.

The problem, of course, is getting there.

I've been crowdfunding as much of the trip as I can, using +Indiegogo - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/send-bliss-not-bombs. But I also wanted to reach out to you for help.

As you may have heard, +Amtrak has recently implemented a program granting writers-in-residence to writers who ride their trains and write their stories, and I love that idea. Moreover, I don't think it's one that needs to be restricted to the confines of the continental United States.

Given your devotion to innovation and storytelling, and the clear joy that you take in interesting new projects, I am writing to request a similar program in conjunction with +Virgin Atlantic. I want to work with you, and be your first Writer In Residence on an international flight, writing part of a short story on the trip from Boston to Heathrow, to get to Oxford, and the rest on the way home.

What better fantasy has there ever been, than for mankind to fly?

Yours,
Bliss

1 batch of bread (tsoureki) mixed, kneaded and doing first rising. Need to get a bigger bowl for next time. I forgot how exhausting manhandling that large and dense a batch of bread is, especially when work surfaces are too high for me to use more than my arms for power generation.

Will probably do some galaktobouriko later, of I'm not totally exhausted.

Current set of beads I'm making in The Outland's colours.  I have at least 7 more to go.  Need to get one more, different colour green. Hoping to find one that doesn't interact with the yellow.

The group, Arstidir, sings a song  - written by Kolbeinn Tumason in 1208 - in a train station in Wuppertal, Germany. It's the oldest known Scandanavian hymn, set to music written in 1970 by Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson.

Response to this video, which they recorded and uploaded out of habit rather than particular intent, has been so massive that they're offering an MP3 of it for free on their Bandcamp site.
