Linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud today.
I’ve kind of been in a funk the past couple of weeks, with all of the horrible stuff on the news and society in general.
I did see a couple of things today that lifted my spirits a bit, though.
This post on Here’s what being alone means, by Fadila Henry. I pretty much agreed with all of this, both good and bad.
This post by Jo on LivingMintGreen about Why slowing down speeds things up. Considering how much I feel like running away right now, this was a much-needed reminder to breathe. Also, Jo’s pictures are always lovely.
And, speaking of running away, I found myself reading this article on Nat Geo about this hermit who lives in Lebanon… and thinking “Hmm. That sounds kind of nice.”
I’ll just add some pics from my recent Japanese Gardens foray to make myself feel better.
