I am a long time fan of This American Life. I have had whole conversations (dare I say, friendships) that pivoted on a mutual familiarity of particular TAL episodes. And nothing has come close to This American Life for me in terms of story telling. That is, until now. (more…)
I realize I just wrote a post about taking a break from podcasts, but this is just too good not to share. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, recently released a podcast designed to help creatives focus and do the thing they were meant to do, mainly create.
The podcast is called Magic Lessons. And it really is just that, magic.
In each episode Gilbert dives into a creative individual’s current situation to figure out what makes them feel stuck and how to get them unstuck. The beauty is that most of us can relate since it is very likely that we’ve felt the same at some point in our lives.
So far, the episodes are relatively short – under 30 minutes. They’re just little bits of inspiration you can put in your pocket and take out when you need a supportive nudge.
You can find the podcast on iTunes or here. Enjoy!

Sad Animal Facts
I have to say upfront that I love animals. I heart them so much.
Like, I love them so much that when people tell me they don’t like a particular animal (like cats), I instantly file it away as a character flaw.
So that being said, I look forward to learning a new sad animal fact daily. I’m not a terrible human, I promise.

Judah turned one. Yay!
Yay for him! And Yay for us! We did it!
SooOOOOooo, we headed to our neighborhood park to celebrate his first birthday. Just an afternoon gathering with family, a few friends, and lots and lots of food. (more…)
