Thunderstorms somewhere between New York and Houston at sunset, August 18, 2015

This was a great week!  Here's why:

•  After a lovely trip to New York City, and a couple of days of down time with my sweet family,  I leave today for Nashville to speak at Brené Brown's book launch.  So looking forward to it -- and if you're there, please tap me on the shoulder, and say hi!

•  Speaking of speaking, my next speaking gig as at the really lovely Blogalicious -- a conference for people of all colours, to be held in Baltimore in September.  I'll be talking about evolution (because you know that's on my mind) -- see you there?

•  My friend Gayla's garden.  So gorgeous.

•  I've been having a love affair with mushrooms lately, so when I saw this recipe, I immediately saved it for a rotation VERY soon.  (Late Saturday when I return from Nashville, maybe?)

•  An interesting photography trend from the 1890s.  Maybe I should start doing "backies"?

•  The making of 3D street art.  That video made my mind go all buggy.

•  I was totally charmed by this pictorial of what real life in Fiji looks like.  It reminded me strongly of the beach I grew up on.  Funny how places on opposite sides of the planet can look exactly the same.

•  The youngest master penman in the world.  Click here or the image below to watch.  My word, this warms the cockles of my handwriting-loving heart.

 

On that note, have a great weekend, friends.  Back next week.
