Every Monday, words to start the week. 

This week, from Humans of New York, an excellent answer to the question, do you remember the happiest moment of your life?: "This one time I was in Hawaii with my family, and we were walking to the beach, and we came to the top of this giant hill. And I said, 'I'm going to take it.' And I put my skateboard down, and started rolling down the hill, and I got going so fast that the board started shake because the trucks were loose, and toward the bottom of the hill I came to this crack, and the board got caught and I was thrown onto the pavement. I got all bruised and scraped and my mom was screaming because she's a total freakout.'"

"That was the happiest moment of your life?"
"Yeah. I was just glad I took the hill."

A few more, just because:
-Turning cemeteries into "sacred forests."
-I saw the band Wolf Alice last week and fell in love. Here they are, and here they are again.
-Warren Buffett on drinking five cans of Coke a day (and eating chocolate chip ice cream for breakfast): "I checked the actuarial tables, and the lowest death rate is among six-year-olds. So I decided to eat like a six-year-old."

More recommended reading, here. Have a happy Monday!


  1. Love these wonderful words!

  2. I follow HONY on facebook but must of missed that one - gold! That eating like a 6 year old article made me smile and how beautiful is Wolf Alice. I hope this sacred forest movement takes off, I think it's the nicest idea ever :)

  3. You really have a knack for finding all these gems on the internet. I need to follow all the people you follow!

    Have a great week ahead!

  4. Jeanina, thank you! Have a wonderful week!

  5. Wolf Alice may be the best band name I've heard in a long time! And, I think eating like a six-year-old might just be my project for the week...

  6. I love HONY and that Warren Buffett quote is on point.
