Monday Matter: A mango missile crisis and a reading slump
Your biweekly Foreign Bodies roundup
Every other Monday, I send subscribers and gift recipients of immigrant mental health and storytelling newsletter Foreign Bodies stories I recently inhaled and adored. This is also a chance to do some housekeeping and give shout-outs and all that jazz.
First things first
A little housekeeping
Get me out of this reading slump!
I haven’t finished a book in weeks and I blame #Scandoval and my brother for introducing me to Bravo reality television. It’s all I can talk and think about these days. An upcoming trip to the canyon, I’m hoping, will help me disconnect, because I sure as hell can’t find the self-control on my own. What’s a book that’s gotten you out of a reading slump?
A musical start to your Mondays 🎧
One song to groove to, cry to, drive to and share
A little Joni Mitchell as I gear up to see my favorite Canadian next week!
