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 loved Ona Gritz’s thoughtful column, Full, Table Not-So-Empty Nest in the January edition of Literary Mama. Having family dinner is a ritual I cherish – Gritz artfully demonstrates how hosting meals can help one heal.
- Keeping different notebooks for varying purposes is important. Randon Billings Noble tells us why in On Keeping a (Writing) Notebook (or Three) in the journal, Brevity.
- For those who love the New York Times column, Modern Love, you can now listen to the podcast as a weekly series.
- I’ve talked about pausing in 2016 and how I’ve decided to incorporate a mediation practice to hone in on a renewed focus on this word. Mindful offers an article on “7 Meditation Talks to Inspire You” by various practitioners to help cultivate quiet in your life.

Thanks for the tip about the Modern Love podcast, Rudri. I enjoy the column, but this would be a great way to catch up while I’m walking my dog. 🙂
You will have to let me know if you prefer the podcast, Jackie. I think it is a great way to relax and gain insight while taking a walk.
