Every month, I share the articles and sites that I found most interesting. Here’s what caught my attention in December.
1. wondering… when the weather is going to cooperate with my C25K schedule. (I could run on my rest days, but I’ve got other workouts scheduled then, and… yeah.)
2. loving… this amazing Wonder Woman tribute. (Have I mentioned how excited I am for the Wonder Woman movie? Because I’m really excited.)
3. looking… for a new bread recipe. It’s been a while since I tried something new.
4. trying… to actually post to Twitter occasionally.
5. thinking… about story: the stories I’m trying to tell, and the stories I’m consuming, and the stories that genuinely speak to me.
6. remembering… that there’s ice cream in the freezer. (Not homemade. Still. Ice cream.)
7. feeling… ambitious. My to-do list for June is… quite a bit longer than my lists for the last few months have been.
8. signing… up for the Seven Swanky Scenes Challenge. It’s been ages since I wrote anything in script format, and I miss it.
9. getting… a little bored with taking photos of flowers. And yet I can’t seem to stop.
10. planning… a few food-related projects for the summer. I’ve got too many recipes I’ve been meaning to try.
‘Outsiders’ by Suede.
1. wondering… why I can’t find solid red washi tape in any local stores.
2. drinking… more hot chocolate in the last two weeks than I’ve had in the last two years. (It’s been that kind of autumn.)
3. catching… up on everything that’s been filling up my DVR over the last couple of months. (Heroes Reborn isn’t as good as season one of the original series, but not as bad as the third season. It’s fun.)
4. making… lists. So many lists.
5. feeling… lazy.
6. hoping… that I haven’t over-committed myself.
7. waiting… for, like, three different shipments that have to arrive in time for Christmas, and it’s killing me.
8. losing… motivation, and momentum, and it means I’ve got so much to do this coming week.
9. trying… to avoid Doctor Who spoilers until I can watch the episode (so, Monday night). So if the entire internet could just… not talk about it, that’d be great.
10. loving… this video by Shea Glover. It’s amazing. ♥
A lovely ‘personal response to treating black and white as an editing afterthought’ by Julianna Thomas.
I feel like I’ve been posting a lot of videos lately.
This is another. But it’s also a still photograph—or, rather, several hundred still photographs, taken with a Lytro Illum camera, and edited into a stunning video for a gorgeous piece of music by Big Noble.

vemödalen – n. the frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist—the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye—which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself.
