David Whyte on Courage
We all have an idea of what courage looks like from the outside, but what about the inside? Is it angry? Energetic? Excited? Or something else?

"We become courageous whenever we live closely to the point of tears ... posted on Jun 15 2017, 6,381 reads


An Act of Dog
Artist Mark Barone believes he is a better man for having painted 5,500 portraits of healthy dogs that have been killed in shelters every year.

Give That Which is Organic To You: A Recipe to Avoid Burnout

In this passage we are invited to give by moving outward from our true natur... posted on Jun 12 2017, 5,253 reads

My Year Reading a Book from Every Country in the World
Several years ago, Ann Morgan, a writer from London, looked at her bookshelf and realized it held almost no books from other countries -- an oversight she called a "massive cultural blindspot." In a nod to the Olympics, she decided to read a book from every country (196 total) and blog about it. But she quickly learned that finding books in English would be a challenge. Only about 4.5 percent of l... posted on Jun 09 2017, 2,178 reads
