Do what you love, memory collector and how we spend our lives

Sitting on a cold platform waiting 27 minutes for the next train is not my idea of fun on a Sunday afternoon. It’s definitely cold enough for Autumn and I’d rather be curled up under a blanket on the sofa at home, with a good book and a steaming mug of tea.

Instead I’m dressed for late summer in a leather jacket tapping away on my phone with numb fingers. Just when I was starting to feel like a grown-up, I’m reminded that dressing appropriately for the weather is still a skill I’m yet to master.

On the plus side I’ve accidentally carved out enough time today to share some of the best articles I’ve read this week. All the articles are expertly written, easy to read and thought provoking to an extreme.

So if you’re lucky enough to be curled up on your sofa at home right now, make yourself another cup of tea and settle down with this week’s Sunday Selection. And for those of you shivering on a platform like me, these articles may not warm your body, but they sure will warm your heart.

(Just three links this week, but three articles really worth your time.)

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives

The memory collector (translations of her work are definitely on my Christmas wishlist)

How to do what you love

Have a great week!

    recently I have been marvelling at my good fortune for being able to use Blackfriars railway station and St Pancras railway station… waiting any length of time for a train is now made much more enjoyable by the view of the Thames rolling under the platform from the former and the champagne bar at the latter :-)
