Jenna Lyons will change the way you look at cuffing your sleeves…for the better. 
PS…
1. Watching this interview is short and fun (more than just about sleeves).
2. This outfit is awesome.  That suit fit and those sneakers!

On being grateful.
My cousin leaves me cute “thank you” notes.  And, in return, I, too, am thankful.

Letters to a Young Artist by Anna Deavere Smith
WHAT: A book to inspire and push anyone endeavoring to stay creative.
WHAT I LEARNED: Being “creative” is within all of us.  The ways in which people pursue this creativity run the gamut.  For those who wish to pursue it professionally (aka financially), it’s really difficult to keep the faith.  Some of these letters, which is what this book is a collection of, may help along the way.
Enjoy.  I did.
PS Thanks, Brain Pickings!

Found this beautiful quote on Emerson Fry’s site.
"But, who is Emerson Fry?" you query.
Why, another thing of long-time beauty.

BBC America’s Broadchurch

WHAT: It’s a TV series that is created and written by Chris Chibnall.

WHAT I LEARNED: That it’s sooo good.  The unexpected twists and turns, the great acting (God, the acting), the nail biting suspense, the beautiful scenic views, and more.  I damn near watched the whole season in one night.

RATING: Run, don’t walk.

Enjoy!

PS FOX is doing their own version titled Gracepoint, which debuts this September.  Full disclosure: I’m NOT happy about this.  They really should leave well enough alone.  The super talented David Tennant who stars in the same lead role (but, now with an American accent) said in a recent-ish Variety article that he just wants “…to go where the good writing is”.  I can’t blame him for that, but still. Tennant also states that several episodes in, the story and its end diverges from the original.  But, how much (and, how well) remains to be seen.  

Don’t get me wrong.  I’ll still watch Gracepoint.  But, I’ll still keep Broadchurch close to my dark, mysterious, and murderous heart.

WHAT: It’s a fairy tale.
WHAT I LEARNED: Ain’t nothing like the real thang.  Oh, and that beautiful music can move anyone, even death.
