Goodness, life feels busy. Does everyone feel busybusy? Like they're running at the edge of their capacity? Try as I do to keep things simple and calm, many days can only be described as whirling and fragmented, or at least that's what my mind feels like. Even the mailbox hints at the crazy - so many catalogs, statements and solicitations. But a few days ago I got a happy parcel, a welcome change from the ads and bills. I opened it up and there was this:
The kind folks at Seeing the Everyday sent me a few samples of their magazine to peruse. Lucky day! It is Gorgeous. Clean and simple. Mindful and thought-provoking. Beautiful words. Exquisite imagery. No ads. (No ads!!) Where other magazines fill me with a frenetic flutter of energy -- must-make-a-craft, must-rearrange-the-living-room sorts of compulsions -- Seeing the Everyday left me feeling calm and reflective. Wanting to quiet down, and give myself more completely to the few things that really matter. I appreciate an influence like that.
The magazine is full of stories and reflections from people like you and me. I'm thinking of submitting something, you know, when my life slows down.
