I recently subscribed to MyBlogLog and it is rapidly becoming one of my favorite community building tools. Late at night I like to traipse through the Internet clicking on faces I see that interest me, drifting to new places, finding new jewels. Sometimes I see someone new checking out my own websites. Sometimes I wend my way from a familiar blog to new territory.
I recently found a beautiful ode to coffee (my favorite beverage) on Clayton Lowe’s website.
the black magic
warms my heart,
soothes my soul
takes me on journeys near and far in cups.
Some of his posts are pictures, some poems, and some breathtaking prose. His bio is as unique and impressive as his words and pictures. It’s a nice place. A respite.
Similarly, I found my way to Christine Kane, musician and personal growth facilitator. Her blog’s subtitle is: Be Creative. Be Conscious. Be Courageous. She is all that and encourages her readers to similarly stretch and grow. I have been pondering a spa vacation/retreat for months, ideally with a close female friend who lives across the country that I don’t get to see often enough (hint Chris). And behold, Christine holds budget friendly weekend retreats several times a year focusing on reflection, silence, examining life directions, and mapping out plans for creating a more authentic life.
