The Week, June 28, 2013

Posted on
Jun 28, 2013

I feel like this week was one of those monumental weeks, filled with Supreme Court rulings and filibusters and bright pink sneakers. It’s the sort of week that I’m sure kids will read about, decades from now.

 

For me, this week was monumental for another reason as well. One year ago today, I had brain surgery. I planned on writing about how I felt, one year out, but I realize I’m not entirely ready to do that.

I am ready, though, to go out and enjoy the sunshine that’s filtering into my office window. To spend a few hours with friends and loved ones this weekend. And maybe next week, I’ll be able to better reflect on this anniversary. Maybe.

In the meantime, you enjoy these links.
