We share a love of Maira Kalman’s work. Earlier this week, I enjoyed knitting and listening to this recent interview, in which Maira mentions in passing that in college, she knit sweaters for her boyfriend. (More empirical evidence, if any was needed, against the mythical boyfriend curse. If you are moved to knit someone a sweater, go ahead, I say. Whatever happens, good or bad, will not have much to do with the sweater, and in the meantime, you should express yourself.) Maira also talks about losing your partner, getting a dog, finding strength you didn’t know you had, and other important things. I always feel better after reading or listening to Maira. Life is beautiful. Don’t waste your time.
Have a happy Sunday. Here in New York, it’s full-on spring, and glorious.
