Weekend

Reading:
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. Be still my heart. A tidbit: “…tidying must start with discarding. We need to exercise self-control and resist storing our belongings until we have finished identifying what we really want and need to keep.”
“Abundance without Attachment” by Arthur C. Brooks. “First, collect experiences, not things.” An interesting article, especially considering the author’s occupation.
“Given the way he prepares, Tom Brady won’t be slowing down anytime soon” by Greg Bishop. “Our method relates to being physically fit, emotionally stable and spiritually nourished.” Thanks, Andy.

Listening:
“The Sacred Art of Listening” and “A Generous Heart” by Tara Brach. I listen to her free podcast (available on iTunes) on my way home from work. Thorough, multi-faceted, thoughtful talks.

This weekend was a quiet one for us. Today we went for a ride in sleepy New Jersey. The muted landscape reminded us of a Wyeth painting.

This week we will spend time with friends and coworkers before heading back to Massachusetts. December has been peaceful and calm. We are enjoying the quiet.
