Busy preparing for my Colorado and Missouri trip. As my Facebook friends know—and, by the way, you're invited to become one—I've morphed into a mushroom fanatic since moving to the midwest, and will be attending the Telluride Mushroom Festival. Oh yeah, and I'll also be giving a bunch of writing-productivity and joyful-activism workshops, and would love to see you at one if you're in the area. Please check my calendar for dates for these and my upcoming Michigan workshops!
I've got some great articles queued up for September, to get us all revved for the new work year. In the meantime, below are some really awesome links. I hope you enjoy them, and please, please, please enjoy the rest of your summer! If you haven't yet been to the beach or the woods or the mountains, that's your homework. 🙂

By moi! One of my favorite of my own articles. Something to consider as summer winds down.
