field notes (11.27.15)

Sometimes, OK most of the time, when I’m out mountain biking or trail running, it feels as if I’m simply out collecting ideas and connections that have been left along my route for me. I just have to gather them and bring them home.

Also, when I’m out biking and running, I often sing along, aloud, to the music I’m listening to.

Y’all homemade chai tea is delicious.

Brandi Carlile is a genius. Listen to “Save Part of Yourself for Me” for evidence.

I’m reading “Carry On” by Rainbow Rowell, “The Game of Love and Death” by Martha Brockenbrough and “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert.

This quote is wandering around in my mind:

“Sell your expertise and you have a limited repertoire. Sell your ignorance and you have an unlimited repertoire. He was selling his ignorance and his desire to learn about a subject. The journey of not knowing to knowing was his work.”    

Richard Saul Wurman speaking about Charles Eames

Brandi Carlile’s music. All of it. I’m in deep with these three albums: The Story, Bear Creek and The Firewatcher’s Daughter. Learning so much from her lyrics.
