Trina: I'm so inspired with artists today keeping the traditions and skills alive from past generations. A lost art should never be lost. Even in our everyday life there is so much to learn. Put down your iPad and learn your Grandmother's lumpia recipe, your Dad's hand at woodwork, your Mom's way of storytelling....teach your children, your sister, a friend. Everyone should visit the Evolving Traditions at the Academy of Sciences featuring Southwest Native Pottery and Silver!
2) Imperfect/strong women and creative writing. Author Alice Munro is an amazing author, known mostly for her New Yorker stories and her books. Visit her Wikipedia page to get some info and read short stories from her. I really enjoy it!
3) And lastly I really like this depression song right now. Oldie/Goodie/Boom.
