puppy power, a day of cheese, and hotline of hope
posted by soe 1:13 am


World news is not good tonight. But that doesn’t mean things aren’t without hope or beauty. Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I pet two puppies on Sunday. One was a tiny beagle nearly the same size as my brother’s favorite stuffed dog growing up and the other an already overgrown Newfoundland.

2. French bread pizza for lunch and leftover cheese fondue for supper.

3. A California teacher launched an art project with her elementary school students — a hotline offering words of encouragement. Calling 707-998-8410 gets you pre-recorded pep talks from kindergarteners, a recording of kids laughing, and more. It is exactly what I needed. (I’ve since heard that the response has been so overwhelming that it keeps crashing, but I understand they’re working on solutions.)

What’s been beautiful or hopeful in your world this week?
