The Bookshelf - Recommended Reading & What I'm Currently Reading
 

Books. I love them.

I love the space they call me into of slower and quieter and more attentive.

I love the settings they call me into - sitting outside as dusk creeps in, curled up on the couch with a blanket when the rest of the world is sleeping, and with coffee in the wee morning hours.

I read to learn, I read to be mesmerized, I read to expand my imagination, I read to improve my own writing, I read even to listen to the coarse sound as my fingers slide back and forth on one single page before turning it. And I read as a way to practice not getting distracted, training my mind to stay on the task at hand. 

I don't tend toward any specific genre - like many aspects of life, whimsical spontaneity is the only compass; whatever my current interests and desires pull me toward. I've spent a winter altogether enraptured in Philip Pullman's Dark Materials and I've had my mind, judgment, and compassion forever changed by Johnathan Haidt's The Righteous Mind

Lately, my husband has been enduring an odd work schedule for a few weeks, resulting in me spending many evenings alone.

As I sat reading (and obviously getting distracted) recently, I thought that maybe some of you would be interested to browse my bookshelves. Personally, I love thumbing through other people's bookshelves - understanding what someone reads is, I think, such a great window into who a person is.

So, I figured it was only right that I create a Bookshelf here on this space. A place where I can share books I've enjoyed in the past and what I'm currently reading.

I also created it as a way to get recommendations from others - my hope is that you'll see the topics and stories I gravitate toward and be able to point me in the direction of something that might tickle my fancy. And hopefully sharing the books I enjoy will offer the same to you!

Who knows - maybe eventually a book club of sorts can form? Please let me know in the comments below if you're interested in something like that. 

Just click below to head over to the library. There's hot tea waiting, dim lighting, empty recliners, and I promise to be quiet ;) 

See you there...

Following The Berries
 

Life has been pretty low-key around here this last week, as we settle back in from the Olympic Peninsula trip and brace for the dry summer here in the Inland Northwest, which has been felt making its entrance the past few days, dust & heat on its shirttails.

I'll just cut straight to the chase and tell you: summer is my least favorite season. Heat, in general, any temperature over 70 degrees F, takes from me. It plays out like a legitimate mathematic formula, where every increase in degree removes a percentage more energy and creativity from my spirit. I blame it on northern European DNA, an ancestral lineage of northern coastal people, but I don't recall being so put off by heat until my mid-20s so it could just be hormonal. (Isn't everything?)

Give me snow, cold, overcast, mist and fog any day.  Which is one of the main reasons I moved to the Northwest in the first place, but Inland Northwest summers are scorchers. The interesting bit, and how summer days here do differ so much from the Kentucky summers I grew up in, is the humidity factor. 

Humidity is typically so low here in the summer months, meaning UV rays are the real culprit. If you can get out of the direct path of the sun, the temperature drops significantly because the air around you isn't full of moisture to hold the heat. I know firsthand that in a place with humid hot summers, like Kentucky's, there is no escaping the heat. It consumes you. No shade tree will change things. But here, nights and days are drastically different. Many nights, sleeping with windows open, I wake chilled and snuggle ever closer to my furnace of a husband for comfort, and most mornings call for long sleeves, pants, and socks until roughly 10AM. From there, until about 7PM, ick. Give me shaded forests, cold mountain lakes, indoor tinkering, and Breathe oil on everything. But thank goodness for the evening respite.

I guess I write all that in a state of mild dread, since our local forecast shows this being the last mild and overcast day in the foreseeable future. So, here we go! The rest of July, August, and most of September will be hot, dry, and if anything like last summer - smoky. Then back into misty and overcast for a month or two, and finally - full on winter. Winters here are very predictable: snow begins falling in December and keeps falling until March or April. No melting happens during that time - what falls turns to snowpack and it's not unsual to measure snow on the ground in feet, not inches. And we love it! This winter I'm planning to start cross-country skiing through the forests, and I have some ideas brewing that revolve around proper hibernating in an inspiring way... stay tuned.

Despite not liking heat, I do love summer, because summer means blossoms and pollination and fruition. We plant people can hardly stand ourselves - planting seeds like lunatics (I don't have an actual garden this year while we exist in this transitional phase, but my container gardening situation is turning out to be more fulfilling than expected) and foraging all our spare hours away.  

Last night began the huckleberry frenzy. If you've never tasted wild huckleberries, I'd tell you to imagine the tastiest blueberry you've ever had, and then add an extra note of deep purpley grapeness on top. That's how a huckleberry tastes. When it comes to foraging sugars off the landscape, they're my favorite - hands down. And with a husband who eats a giant bowl of berries (usually blue) after dinner each night, the more berries we can gather, the better off we are.

During huckleberry season, we can be found in the forest almost every evening, hunkered over with a basket beside us, beginning at the lower elevations and moving higher as the season progresses, following the berries.

From the daily bounty, we'll each have a bowl full with yogurt, and then freeze the rest.  

It feels really good, dare I say natural, to forage nourishment from the land you live with, but I have to say you do forage a lot more than that, my favorite: quiet contemplation. Gathering huckleberries seems to build space for inward reflection and housekeeping of the psyche to unfold.  A space that feels different somehow from the quiet moments found inherently in day to day life. I think there is something to be said about interacting with nature in this way. Beyond just taking a hike through a landscape, when you forage you are included in the landscape. As humans were for hundreds of thousands of years, until just recently. For my own life, these interactions are vital for a kind of growth and inward expansion that I haven't been able to mimic in books or conversation. 

I've just begun a book that expands on this notion, I believe, so hopefully I'll be better suited to write more on it later.

Other projects happening around here this week: attempting to make my own wild sourdough starter, making a small batch of sauerkraut until I manage to unearth my big proper crock out of storage, more and more and more broccoli sprouts of course, planted more zinnias, lavender, and tomatoes, still on the hunt for wild elderflowers, finishing up an embroidered folk banner and pondering how I want to go about displaying it on the wall, and of course my usual work. Oh, and quarts upon quarts of nettle, jasmine, and peppermint tea - my favorite summer teas. Served cold. 

What are you up to?
