Read "Still Writing: The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life" by Dani Shapiro

I have spent most of my professional life writing for business (public relations, advertising and marketing), but I aspire to write for fun (fiction and/or poetry), so I could relate well to the author's memoirs of her writing.

Listened to "Behind the Scenes at the Museum" audiobook by Kate Atkinson

This story is set mostly in England, but its characters also show up in Australia and Scotland. It spans three generations of women, from pre-WWII to 1992. I enjoyed Atkinson's recent novel "Life After Life" and decided to go back and check out some of her earlier works. Next on my list: "Case Histories."

I made a t-shirt at the family tie-dye event.

I also went to a Marvel Super Hero event at Barnes and Noble and learned about super hero movies.
