What I’m reading: The Lady and the Monk: Four Seasons in Kyoto by Pico Iyer. I first read Iyer last year, introduced to his Beginner’s Guide to Japan. He shares his unique voice, travels, and experiences in a very enjoyable tone. I’ve wanted to visit Japan for many years, and in this pandemic, reading about it seems the next, though distant, best thing.
What I’m watching: the stock market. Like everyone, I think. It’s been a much more common conversation over the past twelve months – “what’s the market doing?” And as April is financial literacy month, it’s a good time to pay attention.
Other things that have caught my attention:
- COVID vaccines
- Vegetarian cookbook from chef Hari Pulapaka, a Florida restauranteur.
- And revisiting the Four Agreements.
