A Calm Storm

The blog of Sholeh Samadani Munion

keeping busy

I’ve been trapped at home for the last week and a half with a nasty cold that is now subsiding after powerful antibiotics and enforced rest. As a result, my couch has a Sholeh-sized indentation in the middle, my back is killing me from lack of exercise, I ran out of Internet, and I started talking to the walls. I really have to thank the wonderful people in my life who have done such an amazing job taking care of me, making sure I eat, and making me laugh even when I’m coughing my lungs out. Thank you. Really.

For those of you who are curious, I spent New Years Eve watching all three Back to the Future movies and eating terrible Thai food. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Here are some things that are not insanity-inducing that I thought you might like.

-Free download of some awesome music from Made in Heights (my friends Kelsey and Saba). Go. Now.

-Photos for the month of Speech, Questions, and Honor are up on Nineteen Months, in case you missed them.

-New photos up on Flickr from the last month or so.

-Thanks to Lacey for the heads up about this awesome story from WTTW about a Chicago street photographer, Vivian Maier. A free exhibition of her work is at the Chicago Cultural Center until April 3.

-Sometimes, when I get caught up in my own problems, I look at a picture of the Milky Way, and I chill out.

  1. Funny enough, I was reading the December issue of National Geographic, which had a feature on the Milky Way. It had this effect of making me feel very small, which is a good thing I think. Hope you feel better, and much love from St. Lucia!

  2. too crazy – i’ve been sick all week too and i know others equally sick. There must be a crazy New Years bug going around. 🙂 Hope you feel better soon!

    And yay for music!

  3. 1. I’m with Lorenia. You ran out? lol

    2. I have a high-res composite of the Milky Way as my background so I’m reminded of my tiny place in the universe every single time I see my desktop.

    3. Glad you’re feeling better, and I love the new, clean site design.

    4. BTTF + Thai FTW.
