    Well UL that goes with your year of sports fandom.

    I am reading Spark Joy by declutterer Marie Kondo and browsing some recipe books.

    I know quite a few folks here who liked the Kondo book. She is an interesting, influential woman. I have a great deal of respect for her, despite disagreeing with a point or two.

    What are you thinking of it so far?

    I also read The Call of Cthulhu by H.P Lovecraft. It was a good read!

    A "frolleague" (friend/colleague) suggested it, as he is a huge fan. I will probably read some more of Lovecraft's stories down the road a piece.

    There is a lot of repetition with her previous book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up so this is more reinforcement for me. I like her storage ideas, but I don't pull out a whole category of things and go through it in one fell swoop. I do not anticipate I will ever have a completely tidy life, but I am getting better at not bringing new things into my home that don't spark joy.

    Okay, I dig it.

    There is a term being tossed around in the minimalist community now: "Comfortable minimalism." A married minimalist Canadian couple seemed to have coined the term.

    I just started The End of Alzheimer's, by Dale E Bredesen. I'm listening to The Postmortal, about an immortality vaccine, which--though well-written, well-read, and imaginative, I'm kind of disinclined to finish. I'm really not much of a fiction fan, no matter how hard I try to be.
