Everywhere I turned this morning, I found joy and inspiration. So I thought it might be fun to start a Friday feature that’s a rundown of the week’s great loves. (What a bonus that these all came to me this very day.)
1. Life’s Banquet
a new post by one of my favorite writers, John Blase, on thebeautifuldue: Just like that the front yard has gone cockamamie with spendor…
2. Kale and Eggs, (or Why You Should Start a Food Blog)
Pure loveliness and inspiration from Food Loves Writing. One read and you’ll never want to miss another post. (I don’t.) Here’s why: When you hear these voices, remind yourself that there is something about the creative process that often makes us hesitate, that makes us question and compare, that makes us think, no one will want to read this kale and eggs post or, I need to tell people how great my work is so that it can feel true. (Writer Shannalee Mallon gives us all that AND a deliciously simple recipe for what else? Kale and Eggs. Yum.
3. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring
(full disclosure: You find out at the end it is an ad for a cell phone. But believe me when i say that matters little. The video is remarkable.)
4. Happy that my sweet old cat loves his new bed.
5. Little Bit
loving the sunshine on the porch eyeing me suspiciously.
6. Last weekend’s hike in the Virginia mountains. Glorious.
Happy Friday to you, and may your weekend be filled with lots that you love.
