This lovely book sits on a table in my bedroom, besides my gratitude journal. I was introduced to Mary Oliver’s story and her poetry fairly recently. I am always in awe of people who overcome adversity with grace. She lived her life grateful for the beauties of this earth and dedicated her work to it’s creatures and it’s bounty. One of my favorite poems is written above. I read it often in the morning to remind me that there is work to do. No whining, no complaining.
My childhood friend, older sister and I started a virtual book club this past October. She’s in San Francisco, sis is in London and I’m in North Carolina. Three different time zones will be tricky for virtual book talks, but we’re excited to make it work! Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman was our first read.
I know I mentioned no more books here but I could not help myself. I love Kelly Wearstler’s aesthetic and this book is chock full of inspiring spaces and color. A stunning resource for home decor and art.
Well that’s the round up for this month. There are still piles of books to get to… tackling them one month at a time. xxx T
