And I’m back again… later than planned. But as my dad always says:
Better late than never.
For a few reasons, the last couple of weeks of summer were a bit bumpy, so I thought I would start fresh the week after Labour Day. Get back into the blog, get back into a that post-summer routine of activities. For me, the week after Labour Day will forever be the “first week of school” and for that reason, always holds so much excitement and potential. However, unfortunately, those bumpy reasons mentioned above didn’t quite resolve themselves on my planned timeline… so the fresh start didn’t feel so fresh last week. But that’s ok. Things are slowly, but surely starting to sort themselves out now. And I’m grateful for that. So, as I ease back into this week’s World Saving Wednesday, let me present something for you to ease into…
The On Being Project. If you are a fan of podcasts, and do not yet know On Being with Krista Tippett, this is one you’ve got to check out. I do not know when I started listening to this podcast — and I actually don’t even listen to it as often as I listen to others on my list — but when I do, I am almost always glad for it. Because in the (observably) wild world we are living in these days, the discussions found in this podcast are the calm reprieve we are needing right now. Said in their own words:
The On Being Project is an independent non-profit public life and media initiative. We pursue deep thinking and social courage, moral imagination and joy, to renew inner life, outer life, and life together.
We make audio, digital, live event, and other offerings towards the generative possibilities of a tender, tumultuous global moment. We look behind and beyond the news cycle, attending to the human change that makes social transformation possible across generational time.
So, if you find yourself having a bumpy week, be sure to discover for yourself the calm amongst the chaos that this podcast brings. Or for the readers out there, they’ve also got a blog. Enjoy! ❤
