Bits and pieces

Some favorites from the past few weeks:

This new podcast. Because there's no such thing as too much Modern Love.

This book, by one of my all-time favorite authors. Some other good reads: Little Victories by Jason Gay, Lila by Marilynne Robinson, and What She Knew by Gily Macmillan.

My 16-year-old daughter, Kate, turned me on to this vlog on YouTube, and now I can't get enough. I especially love this one about snowboarding through the streets of Manhattan.

This family of six sold their house in London to travel the world for a year. I've been following along on Instagram.

And this poem, which I find myself reading again and again:

Geese appear high over us,
pass, and the sky closes. Abandon,
as in love or sleep, clear
in the ancient faith: what we need
is here. And we pray, not
for new earth or heaven, but to be
quiet in heart, and in eye,
clear. What we need is here. ~ Wendell Berry
