Almost every Sunday since mid-May 2020 with a few exceptions, I have been taking my own personal Sabbath, where I tune out of the news and social media and turn off my ringer and all notifications on my phone. Throughout the day, sometimes the day before, and/or sometimes the next day, I share what I am reading, listening to or watching during my Sabbath.
After working Saturday, I was off from Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. What follows is what I read, watched, and listened to over those few days.
The day began with journaling, then I finished The Dance of The Seagull, the 15th in the Inspector Montalbano series, by Andrea Camilleri. I’ve been making my way slowly through the series this year and have enjoyed every single one.
In the early afternoon, I read the first 69 pages of What is Grass: Walt Whitman in My Life by Mark Doty. I am planning to finish it over the next three Sundays, as it is split into four parts.
After a long nap, I ended the day and night by watching the original Bourne trilogy of movies starring Matt Damon. I wasn’t sure I’d seen all three so I decided to watch all three. After watching them, I think I had seen the first and third but, for some reason, not the second. I loved all three of them and made me fall in love with this song:
Kim and I bingewatched, and enjoyed, this on Peacock:
We watched, loved, and highly recommend, this on Hulu:
We also listened to a little bit of Broken by Jenny Lawson, which we have been listening to a little at a time.
So, what have you been reading, watching, listening to or doing lately?
