the goods: list 23

  • this courageous life ~ Kate Swoboda's personal website. she's a rock*star. in recent years i have followed her blog every now & then. it's inspiring to return to her words & work this week (thanks to this post by Vivienne) as her present journey is all about leaping & adventuring ~ as is my life.
  • this post by Jen Lee. it's a post about dreaming & knowing & being bRAVe & creating a new life. i heart the reference to You've Got Mail ~ one of those movies that touches me in deep ways.
  • i totally dug the Maine Roller Derby! i attended an intra-league bout on saturday night in portland, maine. it was engaging, colorful & energizing. watch a short documentary profiling the Boston Derby Dames here. along these lines ~ i am looking forward to seeing Whip It on friday night.
  • speaking of powerFULL women (& films!) ~ i am anticipating the upcoming release of a movie entitled, Amelia, about Amelia Earhart.
  • an upcoming inHERview with a "fire*side beauty"! [on the left side of this page you will find a list of some of my "fire*side beauties" ~ a collection of women i connected with at Squam Art Workshops, women i continue to commune with via phone, e-mail & in person.]
  • this past sunday evening, as part of an annual heart*fest weekend in portland, maine, 12 people gathered around a table for a harvest meal after a day spent sailing, beach walking & downtown portland, maine exploring. i have known these 12 people for 34, 20, 3.5 & 2.5 years. the source of this heart*fest/harvest weekend is our bella. for the main course: a prayer of thanks; a cranberry walnut salad; roasted brussel sprouts, squash, beets, yams & onions; and, salmon. for dessert: a home*made pumpkin pie & two pies (mixed berry & apple) from the yummy Two Fat Cats.
  • exploring the spirituality/spiritual practice of play. if you're interested, read more here.
