Here on a gloomy, rainy Friday (seriously, it's been raining for 234091 years and I miss the sun) to share the best of what I've been reading, browsing, and enjoying online lately -- hope you enjoy, too!
Here's to August (how?!) and fall coming soon (please)!
Dreamy, dreamy, dreamy. WHEN CAN I MOVE TO DENMARK.
"And if we are wise, we will listen. We will move as the current moves and rest when the waves tell us to sit still. If we are wise, we will grow into this unknowing journey, into a deep trust in that current." // A Slow and Steady Surrender from Kaitlin Curtice (one of my favorite voices right now)
25 beautiful children's books (hope I can find some of these at my library!)
"Here’s the deal. The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is. When we make that kind of deep bow to the soul of a suffering person, our respect reinforces the soul’s healing resources, the only resources that can help the sufferer make it through." // Parker J. Palmer's words on the gift of presence and the perils of advice are WISE and timely.
DMB is such classic summer music, and I was amazed at the talent of Dave Matthews sans-band. So good. Love me a good Tiny Desk concert!
Absolutely adore this campaign. Brilliant and beautiful and powerful.
I am in AWE of this. So simple, so incredible. I could look at these for hours. Makes me want to make art from my slice of sky, too.
The enneagram types of literary characters and authors? ALL ABOUT THAT.
