hi friends,

Hope you're doing well. Here in Manitoba, the trees have, one by one, been dropping their leaves for the past two months now. Autumn in this part of the world is amazing, and I'm grateful when it decides to linger.

Here are a few things I've been up to lately:

Try 30 days of blogging

Last month I was challenged to a 30-day writing sprint. I blogged every day, which was challenging, but the experiment taught me a lot about my own capabilities and the importance of blogging as a practice. Here are a few of the things I learned. If you're looking for a creative challenge, try blogging (or NaNoWriMo anyone?), and send me a link to your work so I can cheer you on!

Here are a few of my favourite posts from the month:  


Some Interesting Links

Here are a few things I've been reading and listening to lately that you might enjoy:
  • I Used to Be a Human Being - Andrew Sullivan tells of his career in (and addiction t) social media, and how he's learning to become a healthy being in the midst of it. 
  • On Being podcast - Krista Tippett weekly offers fascinating conversations with interesting people. Start with interviews with Mary Karr, Ruby Sales, or Parker Palmer and Courtney Martin.  
  • A Millions Miles in a Thousand Years - I'd read Donald Miller's earlier books years ago, but recently picked this one up, and it has provided lots of food for thought and discussion. Miller tells about his journey towards living a better story.

Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
