{This week: Everyday Magic, water, Adobe Spark, How to Keep a Zibaldone, and more.}

Hi all,

Below are 10 happy links that inspired me this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. I decided to bring my online photography course—Everyday Magic: How to Capture Creative Images with Your Camera—back to life. I’m looking forward to updating the content and teaching the class this fall. I hope you’ll join me for the upcoming session. Read the course description and register here.

2. A beautiful post about the healing power of water: Go to the water.

3. Adobe Spark is a handy design app. Check it out!

4. A fascinating read: How to Keep a Zibaldone, the 14th Century's Answer to Tumblr.

5. Barbara Pero Kampas’s article—Far From Common—made me want to start a commonplace notebook.

6. The Big Magic podcast is so good! Tune in here.

7. My friend Courtney Carver told me about Blank Page, and I’m grateful! I love the service because it helps me set and track professional writing goals, and it’s distraction free!

8. Recently, Zephyr Books & Coffee opened in Yreka, CA. The folks at Zephyr Books serve Northbound Coffee, which is roasted in Mt. Shasta, and the baked goods are delicious. I’ll be hanging out at the cafe frequently because it’s very close to my house. Actually, it’s dangerously close to my home. If you live in Siskiyou County—or happen to be traveling through the area—stop by Zephyr Books & Coffee for a delicious cup of coffee, a sweet treat, a book, or all of the above.

9. On Being a Solo Woman Traveler Part One & Two.

10. After I swam laps last week, I caught the tail end of an interview on the car radio. The conversation caught my ear because the host and guest were talking about caregiving and broken hearts. As the interview ended, the host thanked Lynne Cox for coming onto the show, and she mentioned her new book, Swimming in the Sink. I'm a huge fan of Lynne's writing and swimming adventures, so I bought a copy of her new memoir. I can't wait to read it!

Thanks for reading! If you enjoy my weekly happy links roundup and want to support it, buy a book, register for my upcoming photography course, or share this post with a friend.
