Oh, so this is what happens when I am able to (mostly) keep up with my feeds. You’re in for lots of links, to digest as you can/will. A note to both you, dear reader, and myself. If you click the tag “weekend reads” on any post, you can find the whole kit and kaboodle to come back to. :)
Why go out in the rain?
Carla over at Living Wild and Precious gives me a new look at a usual problem, along with some beautiful wordless videos of the bayou.
Coming from a loud place
A good thing to remember. Sometimes, focusing in on the small, do-able aspects of something is just as worthwhile.

Burying Your Past Self
A reminder that we are always changing, growing, and that sometimes, what once served is no longer helpful.
It’s Yoga… but WTF?
A short, but powerful, look at yoga in magazines versus the lived yoga experience.
“Balance” as a Process, Not a Destination
Another great exploration of this idea of balance, what it is and isn’t.
