  1. Beautifully written, and on-point for those whose lives and bodies have been changed and shaped by chronic illness/pain and by time.
  2. "A robotic spacecraft entered lunar orbit Wednesday, setting up a historic landing scheduled for early evening Thursday when an American spacecraft would touch down on the lunar surface for the first time in more than 50 years."
  3. “We’re not taking this seriously enough.”
  4. Some background on what's happened to my HS classmate, journalist @SabraAyres. "Sabra Ayres on Being Named the AP’s Chief Ukraine Correspondent—And Being Fired 22 Days Later"
  5. Howdy! Here's my latest column for Sky & Telescope, about my stellar love affair with the Pleiades. :) My Stellar Love Affair with the Pleiades
  6. Better late than never: my 2023 eligibility post! :)
  7. I love this meditation on the Night Self by @annabelabbs. My Night Self is certainly bolder and more imaginative than Daytime Jen. And insomniac nights when the sky is clear are stargazing magic.
  8. You all know I’m a big supporter of the Fourth Estate, but that doesn’t mean we can’t them out when they’re wrong. It’s incumbent upon all of us to defend the truth, and the way this election being covered so far is a farce. Last night, Biden won New Hampshire via write-in. He.
  9. Reminding myself that just because one of my favorite bag/backpack companies is having a massive sale, doesn't mean I need any more bags or backpacks.
  10. I'm finally getting the pre-order for Sinister Snare (Haunted Coast book 4) set up and am updating appropriate links. Just in case you have a spooky cozy mystery on your wishlist for October 2024. :)
  11. Since I've been recommending Katherine May's "Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times" to pretty much everybody recently, I figured I should do so here, too. I read this book two years ago and have just started a re-read.
  12. "Trump cannot be re-elected if you want the United States to be a place where elections decide outcomes, where voting rights matter, and where politicians don’t baselessly prosecute their adversaries."
  13. My latest for @SkyandTelescope is now live! It's never too late to cultivate passionate interest. The stars are waiting. 💫
  14. I've decided that what I need is a mashed potatoes delivery service.
  15. My new paranormal cozy comes out tomorrow! But I'm still sick in bed with Covid, so it may be a quiet launch day for "Tainted Treasure" (Haunted Coast 3). Boosts appreciated!
  16. "How do we identify a crisis when it’s everywhere and nowhere at once — when it isn’t a pogrom, but the creeping normalization of lies we thought we had overcome or the orderly erosion of the rights that safeguard our freedom?" https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2023/09/26/ad
  17. Should be a bigger news story. "a ruling that appears to mean the collapse of [the Trump Organization's] operations in New York." Gift link: https://wapo.st/3Zzd6HL
  18. Don't forget! US households can order four more COVID tests from the government, beginning today.
  19. Here's the latest — post-surgery, working from bed — edition of my newsletter, including a book cover reveal for "Sinister Snare" (Haunted Coast 4) and some astro photos. :)
  20. I'm now on Day 12 of post-op after my total knee replacement. Here's what happened in the hospital that day. https://jennifer-willis.com/2023/07/almost-two-weeks-into-recovery/
