This is the most perfect little reading nook I have ever seen.  Giant bookshelves just over your shoulder, a lovely lamp just over your other shoulder, a side table placed within easy reach for a cup of tea, a notebook, and some other books, a window for beautiful natural light, and what looks like the most amazingly comfortable reading chair with a throw blanket at your disposal.  I will be recreating this set up in my apartment…somehow.

This is a really fantastic article.  I now want to read and see all of her plays.

Tea Stained Moments turned 4 today!
I got this in an email from Tumblr—what a nice surprise!  I don’t have many followers to celebrate this with me, mostly because my posting has been inconsistent over the last year or so.  I don’t really care too terribly much, but this email got me thinking…  
When I look back at the last four years of my life, everything that’s happened has been truly incredible.  Four years is so small in the grand scheme of life, let alone the Cosmos (for all you Cosmos viewers out there).  But man…the stuff.  All of the stuff that has occurred in those meager four years—the events, the shows, the people, the struggles.  If I’m doing one thing right in this life, it’s that I’m living it in a huge, exciting, challenging way.  That’s something I can certainly be proud of.

La Valse d’Amélie - Yann Tiersen

(via agentlewoman)

"The wish to travel seems to me characteristically human: the desire to move, to satisfy your curiosity or ease your fears, to change the circumstances of your life, to be a stranger, to make a friend, to experience an exotic landscape, to risk the unknown."

— Paul Theroux (via fuckyeahyoga)

That moment when…

…it snowed overnight in March and it’s Wednesday and there a deadline for a government grant at your day job and you’re low on tampons and the battle seems uphill in every other aspect of your life as well…

…and then you find forgotten dark chocolate covered almonds in your desk drawer.  

It’s the little things.

PS - that person is me. And now I’m eating dark chocolate covered almonds for breakfast.

Editors’ Picks: Cosmos on Etsy
All of this is creative, beautiful, whimsical, and weird. What fun Etsy is.

Listening to this while I’m wading through a government grant application for my day job is changing my world of productivity.  It’s also giving me unrealistic hope that spring is around the corner…

Oscar Night at the Bittfield Estate

You know, there’s something invigorating about watching the Oscars and running lines for auditions and understudy rehearsals during the commercial breaks.  Frozen pizza, Guinness from a can, and inspiration.  

I’m halfway through this book right now and can’t put it down.
