:02: Heart Warmers & Inspiration

+ The Frenchy. Every time I watch this video, it makes me so happy. I want to be friends with this man.

+ Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens: The way Owens describes the natural world is spectacular. Every time I read these pages, I was immediately transported into marshes of the North Carolina coast. This is the best novel I’ve read in a long time.

+ Mary Oliver’s poems. My sister recently bought one of her books which inspired me to look up a few of her poems every week. This one has served me well recently.


It doesn’t have to be

the blue iris, it could be

weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch

a few words together and don’t try

to make them elaborate, this isn’t

a contest but the doorway

into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak.

-Mary Oliver
