Inspired by Sunday Stealing , I'm continuing the new year festivities with a list of things I'm trying in 2016! A bad habit I'm going to break is not stretching enough before bedtime. A new skill I'd like to learn is cutting my own hair. A person I'd like to be more like is Primo Levi. Even when life was at its very nadir, and he was less than a slave in Auschwitz, he could see the power that each and every individual retained: the power to refuse our consent. A good deed I'm going to do is most likely one done without mentioning it. A place I'd like to visit is the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Kyoto. A book I'd like to read is Julian Barnes’ latest novel, The Noise of Time . A letter I'm going to write is going to be at least 145 pages long. A new food I'd like to try is a proper tom yum goong. I'm going to do better at cooking stir fry.
