Today I’m loving…

  1. The Portable Edith Wharton, edited by Linda Wagner-Martin, published by Penguin Classics. I don’t love that they include excerpts from the novels (seriously? A chapter of The Age of Innocence? Like that’s enough?) but I love the selection of short stories, letters and nonfiction.
  2. The Garden Grazer is a recipe blog I just found and am totally crushing on. On which I am totally crushing. I think if you’re going to use crushing as a verb, you’ve got to let the ending-on-a-preposition thing go. Anyway, she’s a vegetarian, the recipes are very health-conscious and her pictures make me hungry.
  3. Ashley Judd’s awesome puffy-face essay.
  4. This definition of the difference between work and play, via The Happiness Project. (spoiler: the difference is all in your mind.)
  5. Ok, and these 9 steps to serene and organized, also via The Happiness Project. (bear with me. I just found the blog, so I’m quoting it quite a bit right now.)
  6. And since I’m a sucker for a to-do list (they make goals seems so achievable) I’m loving a few of the suggestions in this “Hack your mind to get motivated” post, via Life Hacker. My favorite suggestion is what the author calls a “Daily Review” in which you visualize what a successful version of your day would look like in order to organize your priorities.
  7. This post, “Jack Kerouac’s List of 30 Beliefs and Techniques for Prose and Life,” is kinda awesome, via Brain Pickings.

[ETA: and this response to the Texts from Hillary tumblr (purportedly from Madame Secretary herself) is awesome. If it is actually from her. And I like to think it is.]
