My rear view as I head to yoga at Oh Dark Thirty.
Currently reading. (Look ma, no cookbooks!) ~n
This makes me so happy
I have been reading a lot the last couple months. It’s part of one of my goals for 2013, to read more and read more diversely. I’ve always been a reader but for the last couple years have narrowed the window of what I’ve read to what I started to feel was a life-limiting extreme. I read mostly all homesteady/farmy/agriculture type books. Nonfiction and fiction. But all on those themes. And it started to feel suffocating, and was starting to make me feel really sick of hearing anything else about one of my favorite topics. So it was getting bad on a couple of fronts, hence, the 2013 goal.
Here’s a smattering of what I’ve been loving, since I know you are a fellow worm:
- My Harper’s sub, cover to cover. Which I have long adored and continue to love.
- The Long Shining Waters. Fiction, about Lake Superior.
- The Moral Limits of Markets: What Money Can’t Buy. Nonfiction, about how we have shifted from a society with a market economy to a market society.
- Returning to Earth. Fiction, the first of Jim Harrison’s novels I’ve read (I know, I know). I loved it, even though the colleague who loaned it to me warned me that maybe it was not the best time in my life to read it.
- On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes. Nonfiction, just started. It’s about observing and I’m hoping it will be a reminder to savor whatever it is I’m doing rather than gnawing on what I have to get done.
Yay for library lists and on hold items. Yay for NPR’s book reviews.
I don’t know why I follow the tumblr of a small goat farm in Vermont (or how I found it), but look at this wonderful watercolor of the goats.
Steph: this will either warm your heart or make something inside of you curl up and want to die from bad memories. I hope it’s the former. xo
