See, I am American (originally) and live in Australia so this is another complication. Remembering which spelling belongs to which nation. (And I have to write in both versions of English for different things.) 🤪

to worship God, but they do make us drop our jaws in wonder, which for many is the beginning of worship. And that’s no small thing. Notre Dame, as we once knew it, will be deeply missed. /3 Photo from our visit on Dec 17, 2017.

artistry given in dedication to the worship of God. Through the centuries millions have responded to these church bells; millions have entered these doors; millions have whispered prayers and longed for a taste of heaven under these rafters. We don’t need glorious buildings /2

There’s something harrowing about seeing the destruction of a beloved religious and cultural icon live-streamed across our screens while we watch in helplessness, disbelief, and dismay. This wasn’t just a church, it was a symbol of beauty, devotion, and masterful human /1

What is it about seeing a beloved icon burn that makes us run to our archives? This is how I want to remember Notre Dame. Paris, December 17, 2017.

Hey , I’m perhaps a bit late to hearing the news but I’m emphatically opposed to merging fb messenger, insta DM, & WhatsApp. Leave alone. People use/don’t use certain apps for different reasons. Merging the ‘private’ msg systems will lose you even more users.

I clearly have a really hard life. And clearly pregnancy is kicking my geriatric butt.

Being pregnant at 41: Get up, check a few emails. Survey damage already done by kids, then ignore. Extended shower. Put in laundry. Write to do list for ‘actual’ work. Make morning tea for kids. Eat kids’ morning tea. Hang laundry on the line. 11am: Is it bedtime (for me) yet?

How in the world would this not be assessed and condemned and disciplined as excessive force? This is brutal, gross, and inexcusable.

Publishing is a team sport, that’s for sure. The structure and subtitling looks great. It’s good to see it in print and I think it all landed really well... especially w/such a strong opening chapter. You should be super proud. I’m not far in yet but love re-reading as a reader.

I read an early ms of (because that’s what friends do) and loved it then. But reading again now as a reader and not an editor is 200% better. Such a beautiful, important book. Proud of you and glad this has made its way into the world where it belongs.
