What are you up to this weekend? This week has been hard and heavy, and I am sending so much love and support to Jewish and Palestinian communities. The news is horrifying, and so many friends have been feeling terrorized and heartbroken. The Daily had an episode today featuring a father’s account of an attack on an Israel kibbutz, and here’s a gift link to the NYTimes’s ongoing coverage. It’s impossible to know what to say, other than that I love you and hope deeply for wellbeing and peace for all. Stay safe, and here are some links from around the web, if you are looking for a moment of distraction…
The best Marcella Hazan recipe is one you’ve never heard of.
Martin Scorsese breaks down his most iconic films. “There is no main character,” he says about Goodfellas. “I mean, Ray Liotta is a wonderful actor, but…the real character in the movie is the underworld.”

Plus, a reader comment:
Says Allison on do or don’t: randomly stopping by friends’ houses: “As someone who moved from a city where drop-ins NEVER happened to a small town in Michigan where they frequently happen, I have to say I went from being utterly startled to completely enamored with them. Have I been caught braless in my ugly pajamas with a pile of dirty dishes and a toddler melting down? Yes, I have. In theory, this was my nightmare, but I discovered that by letting relatively new people in my life see me like that, they quickly became the kind of friend I WOULD let see me like that. What an important life lesson for an introverted control freak like me!”
