(“pause” mug by rae dunn – i love everything she makes)
these are my current reads. some old favorites. some new. some gifts. some borrowed. i’ve promised myself a few pages of words everyday. a few moments to pause. to get lost in thoughts and stories and poems and drawings. i’m drawn to books so much right now. i just want to read and cozy up with my thoughts and the thoughts of these books.
speaking of reading and thoughts, the jan/feb issue of cloth/paper/scissors is in stores now. you’ll find me on page 48 where i share my thoughts on blogging – about how it can lead us to our words, to our voice and visions revealed. like my favorite books, this blog, has in many ways, led me back to myself. not only does it remind me of who i am, who i am becoming (which is surprisingly easy to lose sight of amidst the daily grind), but also of life’s simple and significant details. i love how something so silly (and seemingly insignificant) as a blog has led to a reawakening of myself. the universe cracks me up in ways that are so gratifyingly surprising and very, very real. i also just want to say how incredibly lucky and grateful i feel to have been a part of this publication the last few months. dream come true.
i am bursting with ideas and inspiration. we returned home from vacation yesterday, and i have found myself enjoying our cozy apt, and running over with motivation and new directions and leaving new scribbly notes everywhere with thoughts and ideas.
speaking of inspiration, check out my friend christine’s (aka swirly) new website called sparkletopia, a website dedicated to all things inspiration. i love how her mind works.
