Daily Handbasket: Sunday, 21 May 17


Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in times of strife. —Tim Gunn



Tim Gunn is my favorite fashion wiseman, and this quote speaks volumes about his positive and generous spirit. I’ve been thinking about collaboration and support lately, and how important it is–not just in times of strife–but even when times are good. We are not meant to be alone. More on this later this week.

What are you up to this week? Can you believe that Memorial Day is only 9 days away? Here comes summer! 🌞🏄🏼‍♀️🍹🏖🚤🕶

    Recently my husband, son, and I have been walking at our civic center in town to walk. it has stairs which I walk to strengthen my left side. Yesterday I went walking by myself we have a hilly road that I live on. I walked up the hill with no problems. Walking the civic center helps.

    Lovely picture, Laura, as well as a perfect epitaph; I am afraid I am alone too much.
