Taking Inspiration from Maria Popova (again)

Lately I've been thinking about Maria Popova's interview with Krista Tippett that aired two years ago. I've been wanting to listen to it again but have found it difficult to find the right moment. But when I started this morning's pancakes and tapped into my podcast app to find something to listen to, guess what... Continue Reading →

2019 – A Depth Year

Happy New Year! All around the blogosphere, people are anxiously setting goals and breaking them down into smaller tasks.

It's Saturday morning and I'm so happy to be sitting at my keyboard, getting this post ready to share. The sun is rising behind me and I can see its reflection on the wall just to my left.
