When you keep things in your space that don’t work [or are broken],
you are encouraging your life to reflect that brokenness .

BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)
I found this book fun to read and full of good advice that you usually don’t hear.
by Grant Petersen
“A wonderfully sane, down-to-earth, and frequently funny guide to riding, maintaining, fixing and enjoying your bicycle.” (Source: Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review)
MOVIES OF THE WEEK (PELÍCULAS DE LA SEMANA)
The White Princess
If you watched The White Queen, you are probably already watching The White Princess. I think you will enjoy both series.
The White Princess is a British-American historical fiction television series for Starz, based on Philippa Gregory’s 2013 novel of the same name. It is a sequel to The White Queen, a 2013 BBC-produced miniseries adapting three of Gregory’s previous novels.
In the eight episode series, the marriage of Henry VII and Elizabeth of York effectively ends the Wars of the Roses by uniting houses of Lancaster and York. However, their mutual enmity and distrust—as well as the political plots of their mothers—threaten to tear both the marriage and the kingdom apart. (Source: Wikipedia)
