Welcome back to the weekly digest of things I saw, heard, or encountered this week that I thought you might like, too!
I liked these New York steps the way they were when I used to live at the top of them.
This cover, of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” from Linkin Park. What I love about this is how much the crowd gets into the song, singing along with the chorus. Some music transcends genre.
We went to visit Monterey this weekend, and checked out Heart Castle along the way. Here are some faces I noticed at the castle:
By the way, Hearst collected sarcophagi. What a weirdo. More importantly, the architect for Hearst Castle was Julia Morgan, one of the U.S.’s first female architects. Very cool.
And then we went to the aquarium. Otters. Octopuses. Lovely views of the water. And I bought this book, all about the sea. Stay tuned for a capsule review over at Tahoma Literary Review at the end of this month.
That’s all for this week. What did you see, encounter, hear, read?
