friday love note! (#105): anything you write / amanda palmer

Anything you write in any format can change somebody, can change an opinion, can scratch an opening in a scarred up heart of a human being—and it doesn’t matter how you do it.
—Amanda Palmer (via brainpickings

Amanda’s new book, The Art of Asking, is coming soon!  Pre-order here.

Have a wonderful weekend.

love, julie

my current pile of books: david lynch, daniel handler, austin kleon, a mischievous cat…

One of the best things about being in the midwest is having access to local libraries full of books in a language I can read. And book stores, of course. Pretty wonderful!  Here’s my current pile of books—some I just finished and some I’m still working on. None of them are duds.
