the goods: list 4

  • exploring Orangette - a blog o' "food stories." i heart food stories. the author, Molly Wizenberg, writes a monthly column for Bon Appetit & she has a brand new book - A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table. read interviews with Molly here & here.
  • this thoughtful post by Magpie Girl entitled, "Stepping Out of the Struggle." i am left with a yes to this: to sitting by the lake or by the fire - to waiting - to stepping out - to listening - to being in process - to taking the long view.
  • Wellness Wednesday - what do you do for yourself that nurtures health (body, mind & spirit)? i post about this here.
  • an interview at decor8 with Elizabeth MacCrellish, founder & director of Squam Art Workshops.
  • Noticing Project {2009}. what are you noticing?
  • when i was in college i received a quote attributed to Aboriginal activists in Queensland: "If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." earlier this week i was reminded of these words while listening to an interview with Majora Carter. i remember - my liberation is connected to everyone's liberation. this is powerFULL!
  • jelly beans. i heart jelly beans. we're entering jelly bean season in these parts! speaking of seasons o' sweetness - here are all of my seasons: summer = blueberry crumb pie season; autumn = pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin season; winter = chocolate chip & walnut cookie season; and, spring, of course = jelly bean season. what are your seasons o' sweetness and/or savory?
  • an interview with Susannah Conway. read it all here - with "a mug of something hot" (as Susannah suggests): 21 intriguing questions & 21 illuminating responses.
  • these words from this movie: "The unexpected is always upon us. And of all the gifts arrayed before me, this one thought at this moment in my life is the most precious. And so, we begin again."
