Have I ever led you astray? Wait, people who knew me in my 20’s, don’t answer that. Or my 30’s. Or early 40’s. Ok, have I led you astray recently? I try not to. Leave it at that.
In a perfect world, Sunday is supposed to be a day to care for the spirit. I’d like to help you do that. Dig in, if interested.
There are quite a few things happening around me right now that are causing me to take a closer look at the big picture. My husband and I had a long talk about this today. As you get older, the big picture has less detail and becomes more abstract. For me, life’s big picture is about remembering these few things:
- Do something to make today better than yesterday. Even if it just means listening better. Especially if it just means listening better.
- NEVER say never.
- Try to say yes as often as you can.
As a way of helping to make your today better than your yesterday, here are my offerings.
This episode of The Mischke Road Show. I told you about this days ago. Why haven’t you listened to it yet? Thank you so much to those of you who have, and who have let me know. I assure you, it’s worth your time, and it will inspire you and change your day. (And a shout out to our children, who are doing their part in filling that bucket with drops. After you listen, you’ll know about the bucket and the drops.)
The website of the brilliant Taylor Negron. Spend time here, lift yourself up. He was so much more than a character actor and stand-up comic, as you’ll see. He was a bright, light soul who used his time here in astonishingly productive and creative ways. All the art on the website is by him, including the gorgeous paintings. An essay not to be missed: The Pink Gorilla (Tuesdays with Lucy).
And this. If nothing else, this. A Last Gift From The Genius Mind of Taylor Negron: Reflections On A Life Spent Playing Everyman: A meditation on saying goodbye from a master of the form.
A sweet song about why you should laugh more.
Hope you feel a little lighter.
And much appreciation to all who take time to comment here or to email me. It’s everything! xo
Hello! ‘Fell into your space when googling the Hudson Valley blogs. Very nice space indeed! Thank you! One of the first things I noticed was the awesome jewellery you were wearing in your photo. Later, I read you are a jewellery maker. Again, very nice.
