Love Love

Don't you love it when two of your favorite things come together in an unexpected way? Like this week's podcast of This American Life, featuring an act by Anne Lamott. I seriously just read this essay of hers a few days ago. If you haven't noticed, my past couple quotes have been hers.

And later this week is the This American Life Annual Poultry Slam! Can't wait!

This week and last week's episodes

Last week: music lessons

Act Three. Knockin' on Heaven's Door.
Writer Anne Lamott with an example of what we can learn from music, right now, outside of formal classes. She tells the story of an airplane trip, a song, and a small miracle.

This week: poultry slam!

Special note to chicken enthusiasts: the name of this episode—The Poultry Slam—has nothing to do with slamming poultry. We are not anti-poultry. Our editorial stance is proudly pro-poultry. The show's name is a pun on Chicago's Poetry Slam.

I love the subtle and clever humor!

Huzzah for the Poultry Slam!

I think if my backyard chicken hobby eventually landed me a role in the annual Poultry Slam, I could die happy.

Hey Karen! You should totally read Anne Lamott's books, if you haven't already. You'd love them.
