It is amazing sometimes that the RSS aggregator seems to collect a pattern that is fleeting and yet solidly present in the diverse world of the blogs I read. And so today, I am delighted to find these three posts, all of which seem to be saying something bigger:
- Alex Kjerulf writing on love and leadership
- AKMA in a meditation on the gift of endings and continuings prompted by Lemony Snickett and JK Rowling’s last novels.
- Christy Lee Engle on “the unwanted passion of your sure defeat,” and other thoughts inspired by David Whyte.
There is a tenderness in all three of these posts, finding the soft underbelly of what might otherwise be a hardened and closed experience. Something ineffable like that, and all three touched me quite deeply on this late autumn day, when the snow is melting around me and the rain and fog move through in small moments.
