Don’t Stop Me Now

on lip synchs, Captain America, and a new name

Hey you!


  1. By far, the most joyful one minute of my week was watching this clip of Paul Rudd lip synching along with Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.” I have watched this 15 times since then.

This newsletter is called Finding Joy in Enough. Every day, you can choose to create joy out of the grief of your life. That’s what I’m doing here: paying attention to moments of joy without isolating them from the hard stuff.

The lotus grows out of the mud. They’re both essential.

Did reading this piece give you a little joy? Or something new to think about? Become a paid subscriber. It’s only $5 a month. Or, $55 a year, if you want to save a little money. And, feel free to share this with your friends. Thank you. 

If you are here because you knew me first as a cookbook author, you might want to look at my husband’s newsletter, Joy in the Belly. There he is telling the story of being a lifelong chef, discovering that he has ADHD, and learning to work with his mind to become a home cook who gives his people joy in the belly.

We all need more joy.

I’m happy you’re here. And I’m grateful for your support.
