For this morning’s walk that Anthony Davis/Jimmy Butler ad from the NBA finals has me thinking about joy. Shout out to Phoebe Farag Mikhail, Author and her book on joy practices, Putting Joy Into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church.

Note: I mention visiting the sick, but be smart about how you do it. Stay safe!

Speaking of joy, I enjoyed filming a video workshop for Craft Talks, an ingenious new project created by novelist Ann Hood. It’s six writers including Ann, Bill Roorbach, Andre Dubus III, John Searles, Laura Lippman, and myself offering classes to help novelists at home writing. Craft Talks offers unlimited access to the six craft talks. Anyone who signs up for the mailing list by October 31st will get a $50 discount. That’s $250 for unlimited access to all six craft talks.
Regular membership is $300 for unlimited access to all six craft talks.

Please check it out! Class is about to begin!
Be well and I’ll see you soon,
