Happy Links: From Online Courses to Creative Organization

Castle Lake, CA

{Every week, I share a roundup of happy links because these resources have inspired me to make positive changes in my life. I hope they motivate and inspire you, too! Enjoy.}

My friend Susannah Conway created an online course called The Inside Story. I was gifted a seat in the class, and I can’t wait to get started! I’ve taken all of Susannah’s courses, and they are helpful, inspiring, and thoughtful. Her books are lovely, too.

And speaking of online courses, I’m contributing to A Simple Year: Twelve Months of Guided Simplicity again! I hope you’ll join us for the class!

I had so much fun capturing this scene.

So good: 3 Ways to Say Goodbye to Busyness.

On Legacy is a touching video about the power of memories and writing.

Pam’s essay about the loss of her mother-in-law is touching.

This was a cool interview: Why a pro photographer shoots on an iPhone.

I loved Jonathan Fields’s interview with Sherry Turkle. It’s about how phones are changing the way we communicate. I can’t wait to read Turkle’s new book, Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age.

I need this t-shirt.

Creative organization at its best.

With gratitude,

    I love reading your happy links posts especially when you throw in pictures of the mountains. I miss the mountains dearly. One of my goals is to move back to a place where I can see the mountains from my window by the time I’m 40.

    I love your time lapse photo on instagram, that’s so fun! And this lovely autumnal scene of the mountains and the lake – I’m looking forward to getting back to my mountains! LOVED the creatively organised ideas, what fun! I’m going to try jazzing up my notebooks! X

    Those creative uses of the planners is inspiring! I’m feeling the itch to go back to a hard copy daily planner, having gone digital for several years now. Love the use of all the color in them! That and I’m reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Big Magic” right now –got to see her speak live at a book event here last weekend!– she is also inspiring me to utilize my creative juices more! Thanks for sharing your Happy Links, always good.

    I love the Creative Organisation link. I’d already read Courtney’s post and she, as she so often does, nails it.

    I just wanted to point out that the term “spirit animal” which is used on the t-shirt, is cultural appropriation. It’s part of the First Nations / Native American traditional culture and as such we (non native) should avoid using it. Here’s a link if you want to learn more:
    Geeks/fandom people have started using “patronus” instead, which you might be familiar with if you’ve read Harry Potter. 🙂 I hope you won’t take offense at my comment. My intention is just to spread awareness about cultural appropriation.
