Most Wednesdays (or thereabouts) I’ve been recording a Curiosity Journal to recap the previous week using these tag words: reading, playing, learning, reacting and writing. Sometimes I mix up the order, just to keep you on your toes.
Care to join me?
I have a copy of Booked: Literature in the Soul of Me sitting nearby, waiting for me to join the book club at The High Calling in January. And this week I picked up a used copy of Tina Fey’s Bossypants and acquired Wrecked, by Jeff Goins.
Hope to get some reading done over break, and plan to dive into those three.
I’ve accepted a new role: the Get Organised Guinea Pig. It’s a humbling, yet appropriate, title.
Once a month I’ll serve as a quirky guest contributor, describing one of my many organizational frustrations along with a solution I decide to implement. As I experiment, I’ll offer an honest evaluation about what works and what doesn’t.
You can read my report on our family’s switch from a paper to electronic calendar. Afterward, browse many other suggestions provided by the experienced Get Organised professionals who publish regularly. They may inspire you to organize a shelf, declutter a drawer, or download software to manage your to-do list.

I thought maybe James Taylor could, in his inimitable voice, bring us a sweet reminder of what we can do through actions and words. We can make it rain—love, love, love is sunshine. I don’t know if things are gonna be just fine if we do this, but it can’t hurt.
