I usually roll with pillows….
…but when I’m feeling crazy, I mix things up a bit.
When I was a boy, it was clothes (an easy way to pack for sleep overs).
When I was in high school, it was CDs. Guster. Red Hot Chili Peppers. Finch. The good stuff.
When I was in college, books. I couldn’t get my hands on enough books.
When I was working after college. It was letters. I was living in California—far from family and friends and cherished every word given to me. Each letter was like a novel I would read again and again and again.
In grad school, my pillow case now seems empty—ready to give without being weighed down and ready to receive without being already filled with distractions and ties. But actually, my pillow case is filled with hurts, regrets, and baggage. But also hope, prayers, encouragement, and healing. Filled with growth, renewal, and a breath of fresh air.
Praise God from whom all pillowcases flow…
Hmm, this is tough as well.
I will go with top 5:
merbc: Merritt. My dear one. So lovely. Captivating soul. Excited for her to post and share more of her brilliance and creativity with the world :)
loveadinfinitum: Lydia is one of my oldest tumblr follows/followers/friends. Amazing writer, big heart, and uncanny ability with a fishing rod
knotformation: Emma just oozes cool. Very thoughtful, remarkable taste, and fellow lover of wine. A must-follow.
sleeperinthevalley: Chelsea is such a talented musician, dedicated servant, and wicked awesome at braiding hair
There are definitely some new awesome folks I’ve recently stumbled upon (male and female) and too many classics that also deserve to be squeezed on this list. Currently working on a favorite tumblrs list. Stay tuned :)
Keep the questions rolling.
Dang. All these anons. Can people with names start asking questions? :)
Anons, show yourself!
Um, great question. I would say it’s a tie between beardsleyjones and iannorris. They are both great gents with tremendous talent, impeccable taste, a yearning for adventure, and a solid compass in life. Maybe someday we’ll all grab a pint together. In the mean time, y’all should go follow them…
I am living at a cool bed and breakfast in Randleman, NC and working at a local church. Holler if you’re in the general 4 hour vicinity :)
