+ Half full

+ New favorite show

+ Library book overload (I have until the end of the move to finish both!)

+ On repeat

+ Recipe to try

+ Enjoying this app. Confession: I did a one minute meditation the other day. Better than nothing, right?

Stopping by to say hello! And that I haven't forgotten about you or this blog. Life is busy with the important stuff - family, friends, and finding rest when and where I can.

I was especially inspired by these two blog posts on time well spent. (More on that later.)

...the only way out is by going through.

It's Not Friday

But I have a spare 5 minutes to post this new tune by my all time favorite group, Sylvan Esso. Foot tappin' good!

Get Out Now

GET OUT NOW. Not just outside, but beyond the trap of the programmed electronic age so gently closing around so many people…. Go outside, move deliberately, then relax, slow down, look around. Do not jog. Do not run…. Instead pay attention to everything that abuts the rural road, the city street, the suburban boulevard. Walk. Stroll. Saunter. Ride a bike, and coast along a lot. Explore…. Abandon, even momentarily, the sleek modern technology that consumes so much time and money now…. Go outside and walk a bit, long enough to forget programming, long enough to take in and record new surroundings…. Flex the mind, a little at first, then a lot. Savor something special. Enjoy the best-kept secret around—the ordinary, everyday landscape that rewards any explorer, that touches any explorer with magic…all of it is free for the taking, for the taking in. Take it. take it in, take in more every weekend, every day, and quickly it becomes the theater that intrigues, relaxes, fascinates, seduces, and above all expands any mind focused on it. Outside lies utterly ordinary space open to any casual explorer willing to find the extraordinary. Outside lies unprogrammed awareness that at times becomes directed serendipity. Outside lies magic.

Brett and I have been chipping away at the latest docu-series on Netflix. Abstract features different kinds of design - photography, interior, architecture, even shoe! Each episode is really well done and inspiring in unique ways. There's definitely something for everyone.

Food For Thought

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 the phone off the hook. Work regular hours.
