Can I just say, September flew? Here I am at another month-end, ready for October bonfires and pumpkins and coffee.
But first, here are a few things that made me happy in September:
This husband-wife duo has been making music I love for a long time. This month, they came to St. Louis and I convinced my family it would be a concert worth attending. (It was.)
The Habit (newsletter, podcast, and webinar)
Jonathan Rogers is an excellent writing teacher and this month I’ve enjoyed his weekly email newsletter (The Habit). I also got to jump on his monthly webinar and have been listening to a few podcast episodes with other writers.
Besides podcasts, I’ve also listened to some incredible sermons this month by Alistair Begg and John Piper.
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
Confession: I’ve never completely read The Lord of the Rings. After finishing The Fellowship of the Ring a few years ago, I planned to read through the trilogy. Well, now I’m back to work on that goal. And in a way, I’m glad I waited. As a writer, I’m beginning to see the beauty and poetry of Tolkien’s story like I haven’t before.
Autumn is a superb season for exercise, fresh air, and savoring God’s creation. I am so enjoying long walks in my neighborhood each morning.
