Bits of Bliss
I haven't done this in a while. It has been too long, really, since I have pointed you to other stuff out there on the interwebs (and in real life) that I am loving. So here we go:
One of my favorite bloggers and someone I have met in person and just immediately adored has a new website. Go check our Lori-Lyn's new Dream Life.
Another favorite blogger whom I have not met but really hope to some day also has a new site, and this one is brand new...Tess has created a space about sacred aging, a space where new ideas about the how of aging for women can be explored.
One of the first bloggers I read on a regular basis (and even went through her archives, eating up all the wisdom), Kimberly Wilson is still inspiring me but in a new way. I admire her ability to focus on her schtuff. Kimberly never wavers from her message, from her primary material. She never participates in discussions that are argumentative, whether they be about the world of yoga or the world at large. She stays out of the mess and I admire her for her class in this arena.
Roots of She is a site that I am starting to spend more time at, and I really love this photo and the Rumi poem.
Rachel, another Brit I very much want to meet, traveled with Himself to Australia and I love her photos from the trip.
One of the women who has been taking my classes since I started teaching has now become a very good friend. A friend of immense talents: She is an amazing singer and writer. I love this piece she wrote for our local paper about the wildness of Spring.
My favorite band when I was a teenager is back in vogue and getting critical acclaim this time around. I love these photos, and in particular, I am loving Simon's saddle shoes.
I am reading a bunch of books, as usual, but three are real standouts.
For fiction, this book has everything I love.
I am also reading two works of non fiction that could not be more different! Love Wins by Rob Bell could totally change your mind about the state of Christianity and its role in contemporary culture; The Secret of Chanel Number 5 is a fascinating look at the development and importance of this scent.
What are you into right now?
