New Creative Paths

New Creative Paths

{This week: 2,736 Days, writing, hiking, and hanging out with like-hearted people.}

Hi all,

Here’s a list of my favorite links and listens from the past week:

1. My Morning View—If you’re following my daily photography series, you can see the latest shots on the blog.

2. The First 2,736 Days—Like Cait, I’m starting a new chapter in my creative life, and I know Paris will play a role in the unfolding. As Cait noted, “Just because you’ve done something for a while doesn’t mean you have to do it forever.”

3. What Would You Do, If You Weren’t Already Doing This?—an excellent question, and a great follow up to The First 2,736 Days by Cait Flanders. 

4. Rahawa Haile on Writing, Diversifying the Outdoors, and Thru-Hiking the Appalachian Trail—a moving interview! I loved Haile’s thoughts on writing and hiking. 

5. Like-minded vs. like-hearted—a fantastic reminder to spend time with people who are “like-hearted.” 

6. The Internet Got Shrinkwrapped by Robin Rendle. Here's my favorite quote from the article:

“We chose to build the web the way we did. But that doesn’t mean we have to live with it. In other words, the Internet might have gotten shrinkwrapped, but we can find ways to unshrink it. On a similar note: this is what a lot of folks don’t really seem to grasp about the government – we are the government. Voting, protesting, volunteering, and donating to causes are the ways in which we can change things. Government is only bad because we made it bad, we let it disintegrate. The government is only as good as we make it.”

7. Walking Away from Social Media—a timely post by my friend Shanna. 

8. David Sax on the Revenge of the Analog—there are many excellent points in this interview. Loved this quote: 

“I think we know that the phone is the antidote to deep social interactions, relationships, and friendships — whether it’s as children or in our adult lives with work colleagues, with our loved ones, with friends.”

9. The Great Work of Your Life—I finished reading Stephen Cope's book earlier this week, and it was inspiring and thought-provoking!

10. This week, I added the following books to my want list: 

Revenge of the Analog by David Sax

Paris in Stride: An Insider's Walking Guide by Jessie Kanelos Weiner and Sarah Moroz

Gandhi: An Autobiography - The Story of My Experiments With Truth by Mohandas K. Gandhi

There’s so much I want to read in 2018! 

With gratitude,
