Sunset at the Wharf

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I have accepted a job offer and start next week. The work is worthwhile, the new colleagues seem nice, and the title and salary are a step up from my last job. I am nervous and excited and feel slightly twingy in my stomach when I think about it, which I usually take to mean I should do exactly what scares me most in that moment because it’s the right decision.

2. When Rudi and I attended a concert at the start of the summer, we entered to win tickets to a future show — and Rudi won. The show was this evening, Jenny Lewis, with the opening act of The Watson Twins. It was a great show, full of harmonies and a sense of whimsy and a love of music, and I’m so glad we were able to attend.

3. I spent last Saturday afternoon tucked away in the convention center listening to writers talk about their books and processes and other miscellaneous information. I didn’t get to hear everyone on my list, but I did get to hear enough of them to be pleased with the result and I got to check out a couple new-to-me writers as well whose work I’ll be looking for at the library in the near future.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
