Hey y’all,

The Keep Going tour continues! Tonight: Cleveland. Next week: Chapel Hill, Atlanta, and Nashville. More upcoming dates here. (Scroll down for t-shirts!)

Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing this week: 

  1. When you’re on the road, you need a portable routine.
  2. How young people can help you hold on to your curiosity as you age.
  3. Diary of a song: How Lizzo made “Juice.” (This is some major Show Your Work! nerdery for music lovers.) You can see the rest of the series here.
  4. The legend of Keanu Reeves.
  5. Travel tip: take a picture of your hotel room number.
  6. Tomorrow is Independent Book Store Day, and some participating stores are giving away free Overheard on the Titanic prints. Find an indie near you and go support it!
  7. The art of redaction.
  8. Getting my photo taken by Clayton Cubitt was a highlight of last year. For a limited time, you can commission him to take your portrait, too!
  9. Ear & eye candy Soul food: I highly, highly recommend seeing the Aretha Franklin documentary Amazing Grace.
  10. RIP Rhino Records whiz Gary Stewart.
Thanks for reading. If you like this newsletter and want to support it, forward it to someone who’d like it or, even better, buy them a book!
