August finds

Some favorites I came across in the month of August:

The always inspirational John O'Donohue left us with this great podcast interview before he left our world.  Make sure to check out the podcast playlist too, for some hauntingly beautiful Celtic music.

Trauma is nothing to be taken lightly, as new research finds that we actually pass our trauma onto our children's genes, once again confirming that effects of war will last for decades beyond the presence of direct violence.

In our FOMO obsessed world, maybe we should consider the value of the unlived parts of our lives.  This one hit me.

It was my mantra for a while (sometimes still is): Be unapologetically you.


One of the huge confusions in our time is to mistake glamour for beauty.
