Love Looks Like This – this beautiful post by Sarah Bessey brought tears to my eyes. Such perfect timing for our Here Year theme this month. Sarah writes that “lifelong love is actually most built throughout the hours of the day, all twenty four of them, in the ordinary moments of our humanity.” Oh, yes. Lifelong love isn’t what we imagined it would be, at least not for me. It’s so much more multifaceted, complicated, and beautiful.
Embarking on a Voyage – Barnstorming is one of my favorite blogs, and this post is a great example of why. The future is a murky mess. We can only navigate by our wits and by what we can hear in the fog. This short piece is so beautiful.
Matt and I watched The Affair over the holiday break. I don’t watch much TV, but that’s changing lately because the qualify of shows such as The Affair have really captured my attention (I also love Homeland and House of Cards). I was riveted by the Affair despite finding the two central protagonists quite unlikeable. I’m particularly fascinated by the notion of what we remember and why, and about how our recollections of an experience as filtered through our own subjectivity (and thus may differ from those of others).
I write these Things I Love Lately posts approximately monthly. You can find all of the previous ones here.
