I love reading new thoughts, especially if they pertain to the creative arts. My favorite websites are those that cause me to think about books–and ideas in books–in deeper ways, and, by extension, to think about life.
That’s probably why I rarely finish reading Maria Popova’s famed Brain Pickings without having received some serious inspiration. Popova’s a literary ideas curator, you might say, and while that sounds highfalutin, it really isn’t. It just means she combs the Internet for important things so I don’t have to. Mmmm, yes, please.
In celebration of nine years of Brain Pickings (a very long time, indeed, in Internet Land), she offers 9 Learnings from 9 Years of Brain Pickings. Several pieces of advice in this short read are spot on. A couple of them I need to take to heart right this minute. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
