Lately, I've been on a major reading kick lately. I find that the more I read, the more I want to read. If that makes sense.
Here's my list for these dark, wintry months.
+ The Secret History by Donna Tartt (on my nightstand)
+ A Tale For the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
+ All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (on Brett's nightstand)
+ The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs

This Bob Dylan interview just made my day.
OK, a lot of people say there is no happiness in this life and certainly there’s no permanent happiness. But self-sufficiency creates happiness. Just because you’re satisfied one moment — saying yes, it’s a good meal, makes me happy — well, that’s not going to necessarily be true the next hour. Life has its ups and downs, and time has to be your partner, you know? Really, time is your soul mate. I’m not exactly sure what happiness even means, to tell you the truth. I don’t know if I personally could define it.

Birthday flowers still going strong!
Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner-life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take phones off the hook. Work regular hours.
