{This Moment}

A Friday ritual inspired by Amanda Soule & many others.
Please feel free to share a link to your own moment in the comments.

Recap of this week on Not Intent On Arriving:
  • On Tuesday, I waxed poetic about leaving our first apartment and Manhattan for our move to Brooklyn. I still feel a little sad about it, but after installing a bit of shelving into our very own in-unit washer/dryer, things are looking up! Also, I'm feeling pre-tty handy this move! Actually moving stuff has not gone well (we have a long list of things I've broken in the past week), but I installed our blinds and shelves with just a little help from Roger and I feel pretty proud of that.
  • Emily Hughes was our featured writer for Writer Wednesday, and it could not have come at a better time. She's been fighting the good fight for equality over on Twitter, and I'm so glad I could lend her a little support during this week. It's still shocking to me that some people hate women so much.
  • And then yesterday, I announced one of my big goals for this year: I'm running a marathon in January! The goals for the year, in case you forgot, are 52 submissions, 45 books, and 1 marathon. I'm making some progress on all of those, so I'll try to do an update soon.

Writing in other places:
  • My Late Night Conversation with Lee Briccetti went up at Late Night Library this week. It was great interviewing such a smart, strong woman, and hearing more about her deep passion for poetry. I hope you'll have a listen!

    1. It is! It's the view of the Manhattan skyline from across the East River. The light was just beautiful that evening, as a storm rolled in.

  3. Such a fantastic capture!!! Have a wonderful weekend!! : )

  4. This looks so serene! The skyline of NYC is one of my faves!

    1. It's a personal favorite of mine, too! It just never gets old.

  5. Training for a marathon - big stuff! I have run a couple of half marathons, but don't know where I'd find the time to train for the full thing. I just got back into running regularly, after taking the winter off, and I am really enjoying it. Pushing 25 pounds in the jogging stroller increases the workout! I tell myself I'll be a speed demon when I can run solo!

    1. Congrats for getting back into running! I can't imagine how hard it must be after having a baby, so you're really rocking it! My running buddy actually mentioned that she really wants to do this marathon because she and her husband are planning to start trying for kids soon, so she's afraid this might be her last chance for a while, because it does take so much time for training.

      And I bet you will be a speed demon when you're running solo! The extra workout plus extra time with your little one sounds like a great way to stay in shape!
