I am enjoying the quiet time that is possible between Christmas and New Years. You can fill it up if you want to with movies and shopping and dining. If that is something you find a hard time making time for in your life then enjoy. I crave quiet and big unscheduled blocks of time.
So many people take time off from work between Christmas and New Years that I am able to enjoy my work at my own pace. And listen to podcasts.
My friend Gigi Johnson shared her enjoyment of On Being and now I love it too. There are so many good topics discussed that you will be sure to find something that floats your boat. I also love it because I am reading Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies by Marilyn Chandler McEntyre. It convicted me about my tendency to use hyperbole in my enthusiasm. It also has awakened my heart to good language. Krista Tippett is respectful of language and careful in choosing guests and topics. Check it out online or on Stitcher.
