Johnny is abandoning me today. OK, not really, but he is leaving to play drums with Ross King. It's just for one night, though, so I guess I'll live. I'm thinking: quality reading time and a good movie thanks to Netflix. Plus, my friend Kimberly is coming over this afternoon to eat buttermilk pie (nutty-chocolate coconut cookies for me), sip
Before Kimberly arrives, I'll be reading The Curator as I do every Friday. Today we have four great articles including a beautiful essay in words & pictures by my good blog-friend, Nicole. Within her lovely words (and photos) she mentions an essay by Rebecca Solnit, an amazing author. I've read part of A Field Guide to Getting Lost; it blew my mind so much that I put it down for the time being, but I will surely pick it back up again. Gorgeous writing. Wanderlust: a History of Walking is on my to-read list.... Anyway, Nicole's piece is quite inspiring along with Sarah's, Ty's, and Christy's:
