I’ve been laid low by the flu.
So today I commend to you two things that you may have missed–and should take a moment to check out.
1. Mary Oliver’s recent conversation with Krista Tippett. Oliver is seldom interviewed, and this conversation is a delight.
2. Shauna Niequist’s piece, “Burn the Candles.” Niequist’s defense of gift-giving–and why we need to receive gifts with more celebration–is spot-on. And an encouragement to embrace just how loved we are.
