A few of my favorite finds in the month of September:
Top favorite: Brandon Stanten has done it again. If the Syrian refugee crisis has been on your mind (and even if it hasn't) you absolutely must spend time reading the stories Brandon has collected. Normally featuring people on the street of New York City, Humans of New York has traveled to Europe and used the power of story to connect us with those facing some of the hardest parts of the human experience.
Favorite video: One of my all-time favorite books, The Prophet, is now a movie and it looks like it will be beautiful. Can't wait to watch it. Here's the trailer.
Favorite comedic relief: Have a giggle at the expense of the Pope. Something tells me Pope Francis would laugh right along with you.
Favorite new word: Transmogrify - to transform, especially in a surprising or magical manner. Spotted in the book The River Why
Favorite product: This adorable bunny, crocheted by women in Uganda and made from Ugandan cotton. His name is Max. I'm trying to convince Leo to love him as much as I do.
