I really liked this book by Mitch Albom. Our book club chose it to read for our June discussion, and it is really wonderful. If you are musically trained, or even just enjoy music, I think it would be a good read for you!
My favorite quote from this book - "Everyone joins a band in this life. And what you play always affects someone."
I liked this TED talk by Anne Lamott. It's called "Twelve Truths I Learned from Life and Writing." One of the things she says that I loved is, "Life is a precious unfathomably beautiful gift, and it is impossible here." Life is "filled with sweetness and beauty, floods and babies and acne and Mozart, all swirled together."
Precious and unfathomable. Yes.
I like escaping to the big city once in awhile. (We live in a small city of about 60,000, about an hour's drive from Denver, Colorado.) One of our favorite escapes is to go to a baseball game at Coors Field to see the Colorado Rockies play.
One day last week we drove to the closest light rail station, boarded the train, and headed to downtown Denver.
Waiting for the train -
The walk to 20th and Blake -
Play ball! (and our team won, which makes it all the more fun!)
I like a pretty bowl of fruit! Yummy!
I like puppy stories, especially because I don't have one! (teehee!) Like LeeAnna's posts about the Misadventures of Milo. Also, my friend, Linda, who doesn't blog, but often sends me photos of her Golden Retriever puppy, Grace, who does fun things like chew up the newspaper. "No news is good news!?!"
A favorite blog to read is Darling Millie. Millie is a beautiful cat, rescued by Lynne of The Patcherie Menagerie, and Millie has her own blog! Lots of fun to see life through a cat's eyes! :)
And, last but not least, while I am on an animal kick - I like this photo of my ScrapJar Stars quilt at our local sculpture park.
Happy (almost) Thursday, everyone! Hope you are finding ways to be positive in these mystifying times! I will be joining the other I Like Thursday bloggers over at LeeAnna's place, Not Afraid of Color, for our weekly get-together to celebrate the good in life!
