Saturday Picks

It's a Choices weekend so I'm off to coach -- which means, little time to post.

I wanted to share with you some finds worth finding.

First off, Glynn over at Faith, Fiction, Friends has a list of amazing prose and poetry and photographs to wander through. I'm blessed with being part of his list, especially because I'm amongst so many powerful writers.

Billy Coffey at What I Learned Today writes a beautiful piece on a friend who became mired in an addiction that he couldn't let go of. Really powerful piece.

And Diane Walker at Contemplative Photography wrote a piece, Stumbling Into Belonging -- I swear she was in my head!

Get inspired by the art offerings at Maureen Odallas' All Art Friday -- as always, treasures to mine and wonder to behold. Did you know Glenfiddich is the Celtic word for "Valley of the Deer"? I thought it was just the name of a delightful scotch whiskey!

On my sidebar are all sorts of wonderful offerings by other writers and photographers under the Blogs I Follow -- Kathleen has a beautiful poem to sweet peas. And Susan's Milkweed will leave you breathless. And the ever effervescent Kat has written a two part series, Why I hate writing 1 and Why I hate writing 2 -- priceless! My daughters even have blogs -- though my eldest daughter's posts on How I Survived Myself have been few and far between, ("wink wink, nudge nudge"), Liseanne has been sporadically updating her European adventures at "One Girl. One Backpack. Too many Shoes". And there's so much more.

And for the creme de la creme! Here's a new Ted Talk that is a must view!

And now, I am off for a day of wonder. A day of watching spirits soar and hearts break open in love.

May your day be filled with joy and love and laughter. May you know the feeling of the sun kissing your face and the breeze caressing your skin as you embrace the wonder and beauty of all you are in this moment.

Ha! Effervescent? If that's another word for "grumpy ho", than yes, I was quite effervescent this week. Thanks for the mention. said...

Ah, kind soul -- if you're in my head, I wish sometimes I were in yours... I might be a nicer person!
