I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- I love Joanna Goddard’s Cup of Jo. The year is winding down and she recently posted this piece on 26 Things Every Person Should Do for Themselves Once a Year. Some of the recommendations: take yourself out to dinner alone, visit a new city or rearrange your space. Check out the post to see what made this list and other options you might consider.
- One my passions in life is to maintain organization in my space. Order is something I crave and the website, Unclutterer is one of my favorite places to find novel information on how to keep surroundings tidy and neat.
- Lisa Sadikman is a writer I adore. Her words are visceral and lyrical and she often carves out these rich metaphors that linger days after you read her work. Her piece this week, The Right Side of Grateful resonated with me. These lines especially touched me: “Every once in a while we’re pulled out of our tiny lives to marvel at the vastness of the universe, the miracle of it, really. There hanging in the sky was immutable proof of the earth spinning, the moon too and that sometimes our paths whirl so close to one another that it seems we are within reach.”
- Gift giving season is in full swing. My go-to gifts often involve books. Check out Parnassus bookstore recommendations on what books to gift your loved ones.
