Inspired By.

I've wanted to get my hands on it for a long time, and now I am finally and blissfully engrossed in Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird. It is as good as everyone has insisted, and it's just what I need right now. I love the imagery in this, 
"I wish I had a secret I could let you in on, some formula my father passed on to me in a whisper just before he died, some code word that has enabled me to sit at my desk and land flights of creative inspiration like an air-traffic controller. But I don't." 
Yes. Exactly. 

And today my thoughts are flighty and somewhat incomprehensible and so I'm thankful that this weekend is here, and that I can fly around with them, exploring new ideas, and hopefully capture them on a page somehow. 

These are the words and ideas that inspired me this week, the ones that are still floating around in my head, among other things. I hope you find them as delightful as I have. 

"We lost the bet and won everything." A beautiful post on marriage

Are you a midnight hustler? Ryan Gosling has something to tell you.

Bones and bodies : the mystery of our physical selves.

I'm putting this book on my reading list. In just the few sentences you've shared, I can see why you're in love with it. Thanks for all the links...off to explore. Wishing you a weekend overflowing with wonder. :)

I blush (every time!) I find myself on one of your lists. Always such great company, and inspiring reading for me during the weekend. Joanna's list on words for the heartbroken really touched me (it's so easy for me to feel like I'm the only one who's ever felt this way.)
