Do you ever marvel at the fantastic finds you trip over throughout your day? So many of them are quite by accident: Beautiful pictures, awesome quotes, funny stuff, amazing things people are creating and doing…

I get so tired and depressed when/if I read the “regular” news! So I’ve made it a point to follow sites that teach or amaze me—or sites that explore the ways we regular humans support and sustain one another. I like to leave my perusing of the news feeling hopeful and excited. How about you?
