e-Staff Picks: Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed
Jenn says: “We’ve recommended this book before, but it’s worth recommending again. It’s been my go-to book for people in any and every transition moment you can think of — graduating, moving, breaking up, getting together, losing their cool, taking advantage of new opportunities — as well as my own personal back-up for those days when I need a little kick.”
Put a tiny beautiful spring in your step.

"What I’ve found is that if you approach people out of respect and kindness, they are happy to share their struggles—and their victories—with you. But I think it is important to subtly communicate that in this exchange, they are providing you with a great gift: an expanded understanding of what it means to be human, and perhaps a peek into grace." Brian Lindstrom, in his interview with Anisse Gross on The Rumpus. Read it! (PS: Brian is my husband.)

marginalia: My Favorite Things by Shuntaro Tanikawa

coldgreentea:

‘Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with strings —
These are a few of my favorite things.’

—Oscar Hammerstein


No matter how much
I like a thing
actually owning it
somewhat bores me.

And no matter…

Shuntaro Tanikawa was my mother’s favorite poet.
