The Weekend Review

It's a rainy weekend here in the Ozarks, one of those gray, pre-fall kinds of weekends that beg you to stay inside. Could there be a better weekend to curl up with a good book or catch up on a few good links? Books:

Have you picked up your copy of Essentialism, the book about the disciplined pursuit of less? I own it on Kindle, Audible, and in hardback, and this book continues to shape my thinking. (I'm reading it for the third time.)

Politics:

What if more prominent Republicans shared their opinions about Donald Trump? Here's a little food for thought by GQ. I'm not prominent, and I'm no strong Republican, but I've spoken my mind here.

Daredevilry:

Perhaps this shows my GQ bias, but check out this interview with stuntman Eddie Braun, who is jumping across the Snake River in a rocket.

Spiritual Formation:

"[L]ately I’ve become aware of a gap between my desire and my ability to sit still without an agenda." Don't miss Emily P. Freeman's piece, "For When You Think You Might Be Doing Silence Wrong."

Futurism:

Texting by thinking? Small modular nuclear reactors gain widespread adoption? Do not miss this speculative timeline for 2020-2029. It might cause a minor freakout, but it sure is a fun read.

Music:

"This is where I live. This is where I give all my love, all my time, all my money, every dime. This is where I live."

Enjoy.
