This week’s Must-Reads for Creatives create an arc: we begin with posts that address our common creative challenges, and end with awe and curiosity. I’m a fan of working through discomfort (rather than stuffing it), stepping back to look at the big picture, and remembering the curiosity that drives it all…

Latest In Tandem Post:
What are you up to this week? I’ve had an unusually fun Halloween week!
- My family enjoyed a progressive dinner run by our babysitting co-op (appetizers at one house, dinner at the next, and dessert at the final house). It was kid-friendly (piñatas and dancing!) and parent-friendly (great company and great cocktails!). Who knew I’d go to the best Halloween party ever, with my kids? 😉
- I planned and ran successful Halloween parties in Odette’s preschool and Stella’s Kindergarten classrooms. At first, I worried I’d signed on for too much, but they ended up being truly fun creative outlets.
- I decorated a colorful Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) skull pumpkin.
- Trick or treating on the block north of us was a goldmine! One house offered “adult treats” (an array of shots to drink). One house had a dog dressed as a lion. And another hosted a full-on haunted house, with a spooky person laying on the sidewalk as we approached and a creepy butcher scene on the porch (shielded the kids some on that one).
Enjoy your week!
