* This article about the poet Mary Oliver that I read in The New Yorker. A critique on her new anthology, Devotion, and what critics don't understand about her work.
*Celeste Ng's new novel, Little Fires Everywhere. Her characters are so well-delineated and the central theme thought-provoking. I highly recommend it.
* Are you a fan of essential oils? If yes, be sure to check out the beautiful selection offered by Bella Cirovic of She Told Stories. My current favorite is Winter Solstice and I just ordered May It Be So, to support my intention to play more this year with my art.
* During the winter I am always on the hunt for a rib-sticking recipe that is easy to make. Smitten Kitchen's Braised Beef Short Ribs were divine!
*This blog has become one of my new favorites.
*I have a confession to make: I am a fan of pop culture. This podcast is a fun and quick listen on what's new on the telly, in the movies, at bookstores and more.
*Finally, because my word of the year is Play, I am rereading this book.
