Uh-oh. It’s been six weeks since my last Internet Inspiration. You know what that means: TABSTRAVAGANZA!!!
Up first: Restaurants that crushed the naming game. Puns everywhere!
Helpful advice if you’re tired of moving out of the way when someone’s walking towards you.
In the morning, without any sort of plan, you walk up the road, going nowhere.Focus on today, you remind yourself. All is well, you say, to no one. And it is. With every step you are clearing a space, coming closer to a self you almost forgot you knew. The good news is, that self hasn’t abandoned you. She has been here all along, waiting patiently for you to turn away from all your busy comings and goings, to recognize her, greet her, and welcome her home.
A new favorite poem, from the late, brilliant Stephen Levine, via his wife.
If prayer would do it
If reading esteemed thinkers would do it
I’d be halfway through the Patriarchs.
If discourse would do it
I’d be sitting with His Holiness
every moment he was free.
If contemplation would do it
I’d have translated the Periodic Table
to hermit poems, converting
matter to spirit.
If even fighting would do it
I’d already be a blackbelt.
If anything other than love could do it
I’ve done it already
and left the hardest for last.
My new favorite thing: little witches cast good spells before Easter.
