The High Five goes out every Friday morning - just in time to jump start your weekend. I'm handpicking five things I think you'll enjoy discovering, listening to, or thinking about as you head out to do great things.

Mental Vegetables

Happy Friday, friends! There’s quite a story behind this picture but Charlotte is still mad at me for sharing with you what we’ll simply refer to as the “Honeydew Situation”. So it’ll have to be a story for another day. I tried explaining that all the great writers draw heavily on their personal experiences. Her eye-roll riposte was withering.
This week’s grabs are a little on the cerebral side so I put in the kooky Thom Yorke dance to help the medicine go down. But if you think I’m going to pass up on nuggets re: Adrienne Rich or Miyazaki just because you’ve had a long week and gosh-can’t-we-just-have-some-cute- animal-gifs then you’ve not been paying attention. The High Five is my secret one-man campaign to help you eat your mental vegetables. Mental Vegetables, incidentally, would be an awesome band name. So belly up to the table and no one leaves until they clean their plate.
