Sunday Best – April 21, 2024

If there is an act of love, that is to remember.       – Montserrat Roig   I’ve been immersed in discussions of AI-fueled applications lately – all are stunning, many are promising, some are creepy, and most are at least a little unsettling. One of the more captivating ideas involves creation of “synthetic memories” […]

  Joy is the mostly invisible, the underground union between us…       – Ross Gay, The Book of Delights   I’ve long been a fan of the idea that we can make our own small joys in life – noticing beautiful moments, finding a pocket of quiet in a noisy space, and occasionally […]

  Nothing in life is as important as you think it is when you are thinking about it.      – Daniel Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slow   You have to love a researcher on thinking who makes a big point of noting that the answer to every question is not just, “think harder.” Sometimes, […]

  Dear ones, in this season of rebirth and renewal and regenerative miracles, I share the wisest counsel I’ve recently received.

Leave the raft upon the riverbank.   That’s the summation of an oft-cited Buddhist parable, where the story gently reminds us that just because something is useful in one setting, we need not carry it with us forevermore.

  This weekend I happened upon a beach full of seashells, heaped in great piles like some sort of salty sunny Aladdin’s cave. The abundance was astonishing, and unsettling. At first I stood dazed and dazzled. Then I started darting from pile to pile, sure that the next one was somehow better than the one […]

  Friends, it is a loud loud world. In an effort to set aside the daily news one night this past week, I watched a shocking number of Taylor Swift reels and learned that butterflies sometimes drink turtle tears. While these were worthwhile distractions, they were just that – distractions. Thankfully there was also a […]

  Friends, I am happily unplugged today, and wishing you a pocket of quiet reflection as well. Here with a similar and more completely formed wish is Invitation from Mary Oliver’s Red Bird :   Oh do you have time to linger for just a little while out of your busy     and very important day […]
