Joseph Campbell, noted American mythologist, writer, and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion, espoused that we should "follow our bliss". That speaks to me. Yet I am a 48 year-old divorcee and mom to two teenagers, half afraid and half clueless about how exactly to do that! Follow my blog to see how I figure it out. Maybe along the way you can find a way to follow your bliss too ....
The Pioneer Woman
--KICK-ASS!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot emphasize this enough. Is hands-down the mega-ist of the mega bloggers. It’s obvious why and it’s well-deserved. Openly admit have giant crush on this woman. Want nothing more than to be her friend (and her clone)—me and millions of other women. Take your time looking around this blog …it goes on & on & on & on & on in its fabulous-ness. Just her photography ……*sigh* ……and that’s only the beginning. Oh check out "Marlboro Man" too—her hubby—look for “Captain Forearms” post. You’ll swoon, even if you’re a guy. I swear.
my hidden muse
--My cousin Christy thought I might like her friend's blog .....like it? It's this little elegant gem that is oozing the courage I'm seeking. Danielle Marie is an artist in every sense of the word. Peruse it carefully. It will quietly blow you away.
i am bossy
--funny as hell; worth reading every single day.
JOSH IS TRASHY
--my favorite guy blogger; found him commenting hilariously on Bossy's blog; funny as hell too--figures.
--hands-down most mind-blowing children’s photographer I’ve ever come across. GORGEOUS. Lovely. Found her on Ree's (The Pioneer Woman) blog; she’s guest-blogged for Ree lots. If your life needs a zen moment, pour a glass of wine and get your a** over here!
Misadventures With Andi
-–nicest, classiest blogger I’ve “met”. Has that very hip San Francisco cool blogger/internet marketer/media savvy/absolutely loves all things Parisian-thing going on. I want to be her too (see Pioneer Woman comment above). She’s been shockingly nice to me already; kind of taken me under her wing a little; is graciously letting me guest-blog for her this Christmas Eve!!!!!!!! (while she’s in France!) (Cool, huh?) Am flattered beyond belief ……
Smells Like Happy
--a very unique, well-written, and quietly unpretentious little blog by a young woman who lives with her husband in Mozambique on the Southeastern coast of Africa. They are a brave, young pair in an unpredicatable, roiling city--south of the equator where winter is summer and summer is, well you know. Go read it and be inspired. Be sure to read her "About Me" ...probably the most well-written profile I've come across.
Are You There God? It's Me--Generation X
-–tuned in to Miss JenX67 after reading the accolades Andi wrote about her on "Misadventures ...". JenX has no idea how highly I think of her (yet) but she started “following” me yesterday and I’m SO thrilled! This is a very cool, deep girl with the kind of heart I aspire to.
Lick The Bowl Good
--This food blog will make your mouth water. She's like Martha Stewart, only nice.
365 Days of Sun
--My favorite very specifically focused, intellectual blog. Nice short posts (so you don't blow your mind) about historical art pieces, all having something to do with the sun. You can easily read it each day and then walk around feeling smart.
