1. I didn’t strike for International Women’s Day yesterday because I’m taking time off for a long weekend and my PTO is just so limited. (Is this part of what I should have gone on strike for? Yes. Let’s unionize!) So here’s some links for a longer weekend.

2. In honor of IWD, Rebecca Solnit’s essay “Men Explain Things To Me” is always worth a read.

3. I love Bob Ross’ painting show wholeheartedly and unironically, but I found David Hockney videos on YouTube last week and they are also delightful. Wisdom imparted in this one include, “There’s a fabulous lot to look at” and “It’s always now. It’s the now that’s eternal, actually.”
