Odds and Ends

{Every week, I share a roundup of 10 happy links that I think are worth reading, listening to, or scrolling through. I hope you like them, too!}

Recently, I discovered Austin Kleon’s website and newsletter. Every week, Kleon sends out a list of 10 interesting things to the folks on his email list. I signed up for Kleon’s list and I’m excited to read his recommended links.

Also, I’ve been looking for a simple way to modify my weekly link roundup because I’ve been publishing this series since 2008 and wanted to make a slight change to the format. So I decided to “steal like an artist” and use Kleon’s numbering strategy for my Happy Links roundup. I don’t know why the numbering idea excited me, but I’m going to roll with it.

Enjoy the links!

1. Recently, Jonathan Fields interviewed Bonnie Ware. It’s a moving conversation about regrets, dying, living a meaningful life, and beyond. I highly recommend tuning into the show.

2. I’m happy Courtney is running this program again: 31 Days of Gifts You So Deserve 2015.

3. So true: The problem with fancy notebooks.

4. Susannah shared “The Steal Like an Artist Journal Talk” in her weekly roundup. The talk inspired me!

5. I agree: “… all writers are readers first.”

6. 100 words of feeling.

7. Beautiful images and lovely tips: Clear space. Clear mind.

8. Should I quit creative entrepreneurship & join the peace corps?

9. I’m reading Cartooning: Philosophy and Practice by Ivan Brunetti.

10. Cristina’s photos are stunning! Check out her gallery and Instagram photos.
