There’s a lot of stuff I share on the Internet every day. Here’s a round up of the things I most enjoyed last week by category.
- Yeah, this is its own category. Steve Perry returns to the stage. My mania for Journey and Steve Perry are the longest relationships I’ve maintained — approaching 25 years soon. If I had been at this show I would have DIED. Dead.
- To love at all comic by Zen Pencils. Gavin Aung takes great quotes and turns them into profound comics. This one is a long-time favorite from C.S. Lewis.
- 10 old fashioned dating habits we should make cool again. “9. The general concept of asking permission for things.” Seriously. Not too long ago during a romantic moment a gentleman caller asked if he could kiss me. That right there ensured he’d get a second date.
- Danielle LaPorte blew my mind. This blog post inspired me to finish my own post on dating. But it’s applicable far beyond the dating relationships. Mindfully protecting our precious hearts while still keeping them open and authentic is an art to master as we navigate all relationships, romantic or not.
- Empathetic seal. The seal sees his human playmate fall down. Darling.
- Catching up with John Fullbright by Tim Basham at Paste Magazine. Really well done interview that elicits an intimacy John doesn’t often grant.
- American Songwriter magazine loves John Fullbright. “Neil Young was 24 when he released After the Gold Rush. Joni Mitchell recorded Blue at 27. Years from now, after it stands the test of time, John Fullbright’s Songs could take its place in that same pantheon of hallowed musical masterpieces.”
- Hozier and the Tiny Desk. I’m no longer in the business of makin’ babies. But if I were, this would be the perfect soundtrack.
- The Gospel Whiskey Runners – Hold On. Spotify recommended this album to me this week and I can’t get enough of it.
- Red Right Ankle by The Decemberists. I was up late texting this week with a friend, processing a little bit of wistful grief that had surfaced. As I explained a sort of ‘missing limb’ kind of feeling, he sent me this song. I love my people.
