I've been feeling creatively depleted lately; in an attempt to break through the block, I've been going through my journals, favorite books, and old pre-iPhone, pre-digital photos. I'm finding some beautiful creative connections among these beloved treasures, and I'll be sharing selections from them occasionally for the next few months, in a project I'm calling "From the Archives" (such a unique name, I know!) I'm a bit nervous about sharing words of my own, so I might lean heavily on the words of my literary and spiritual mentors to begin :)  [caption id="attachment_4598" align="alignleft" width="1024"] "Joe and I flew home...

Brainpickings.org has been a source of inspiration for me for several years now. Maria Popova, the beautiful mind behind Brain Pickings, is celebrating 10 years of educating people outside the walls of a classroom. She recently shared 10 learnings from her 10 years of brain pickings. They were so great, I wanted to create a little visual of her 10 learnings as a quiet reminder I can look at each day. There is so much more behind these 10 lessons in her full post here - I HIGHLY recommend checking out her site.
