It's another Thursday which brings another Thursday Three. Thanks for the great feedback two weeks ago. Here's the latest that went out this morning. The theme is: "home," with a heartbreaking, moving article, a great song, and one of my favorite poems.
A bit of behind-the-scenes reflection: This one was tough to write. My mom's childhood home will be sold this weekend and, she hasn't stated it (we don't talk about our feelings), but I can tell it's tough on her. So I thought a lot about her as I put this together, knowing she reads every week. I hope it was at once meaningful and hopefully healing, too.
That Mary Oliver poem gets me every time.
As always, I welcome your thoughts and feedback. I'm thankful for this space and looking forward to contributing more. You can read about the Thursday Three and subscribe at http://thursdaythree.com .
this... a thousand times this...
I applaud this and think I will figure out how to incorporate more poetry into my life.
