fist pump tuesday

September 7, 2010

Here is what is making me pump my fist today:

1. Daisy May Erlewine, “Like This” — I have listened to this beautiful folk song probably close to 100 times in the past two days. I love the sweet, almost nonsensical lyrics; it’s grown on me exponentially the more I listened to the words. I couldn’t find a video or clip of the song (since Ms. Erlewine is a local Michigan artist), but you can buy the song on iTunes for a mere 99 cents. I promise, it’s the best dollar you’ve spent in a loooooong time.

2. T-Rex Networks — This comic explains exactly how I feel about networking…and why going to PR social groups always gave me the heebie-jeebies. If you’re a young professional (a “yo-pro”?), you might get a belly laugh out of this.

3. Choosing to tell different stories — I found this tidbit from Jonathan Safran Foer written in one of my journals and found it simply beautiful:

“…’Everything is possible again.’ It was the perfect thing to write, because that was exactly how I felt. We could retell our stories and make them better, more representative or aspirational. Or we could choose to tell different stories. The world itself had another chance.”

What is making you pump your fist today?

    I am not one to pump my fist. But these frequent swims in the ocean have been doing me a hell of a lot of good. Wish you could come with. The water is so cold you can’t breathe for 10 seconds, and then pain sets in for about a minute and then you almost feel sick until suddenly a big wave washes over you and then its pure joy.
    There is something about the suffering and then sudden exhilaration that really seals the deal.
    Oh, and of course when you look down and see massive crabs the size of your head. That is pretty exciting too.

    Caroline, I just wanted to say again how much I enjoy your blog. Thanks for the humor and the pictures and the recipes and the poems and pointing all of it toward a joyful love of Jesus.
