My friend Diana who has a new look for her blog, Talk To Diana has a Friday Pick every week. I love the idea. To share something from another blogger you find inspiring, entertaining, interesting so that others can meet new bloggers, explore new ideas.
Today’s Pick is by KatrinaLabra — I Want You. Well forth the read, and then an explore of Katrina’s site. A self-identified ‘teenager’, Katrina’s writing makes me smile and laugh and wish I was so young again if only to feel so much, hurt so deeply and be so open to exploring new ideas and thoughts. (Thanks Diana for the lead).
While I don’t know that I can, or will, do a specific day for picks, I do love the idea of sharing fascinating blogs I read — which is why I am also linking in Maureen Doallas’ Writing Without Paper. Like Diana, Maureen is always sharing amazing finds and Friday’s are her All Art Friday round-ups — interesting exhibits, shows, art happenings that inspire, move, engage hearts and minds in the wonder of creativity. HINT — today’s offerings include a video of water sculpture that is sure to make you go WOW! and do watch the Nancy Dwyer video — fascinating!
Diane Walker at Contemplative Photography has been matching her beautiful art and photographs to poetry for sometime — even when she’s not sharing the poets Rumi, Rilke, Oliver and more — her words and images stir my soul and lift my spirits. Do drop by. You soul will be grateful.
Kathy Richards over at Katdish has strong political views and opinions. She teaches me constantly about right from wrong, left from right and also about the vagaries of the political winds south of the Canadian border. Always a fascinating read, Kat never ceases to amaze me with her grasp of what’s really happening in this situation — and her insights always wake me up. This week, Kat posts about the latest IRS debacle and its ability to unite left and right and everyone in between — and the Jon Stewart video she shares is definitely a ‘must watch’.
I could go on! There is so much great stuff out there in the webosphere. But, I must get on with my day. Miracles are awaiting, dreams are unfolding and life is opening up with wonder and awe.
And… the rain is falling. For those fighting against rising flood waters, my heart goes out to you. For those staying warm and dry, stay that way. The rain will fall and then, the sun will shine once again.
I am grateful for this day.
