Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin ---- A book by a favourite author ---- I have just read the first book ('The Happiness Project' - loved) but have long followed the blog and received the emails so I count Gretchen Rubin as one of my favourite writers.
Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives - by Gretchen Rubin. How do we change? Gretchen Rubin's answer: through habits. Habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. It takes work to make a habit, but once that habit is set, we can harness the energy of habits to build happier, stronger, more productive lives. So if habits are a key to change, then what we really need to know is: How do we change our habits? March 17, 2015
Peter Mendelsund book cover for Ulysses. I love the embedded "YES." Like the ghostly "JOHN" on cover of The Year of Magical Thinking.

This passage from Ulysses inspired Mendelsund's cover for the James Joyce classic: "I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes."
St. Therese of Lisieux as Joan of Arc

Catholic Saint Therese of Lisieux in 1895, just two years before her death.
Be not afraid to tell Jesus that you love Him; even though it be without feeling, this is the way to oblige Him to help you, and carry you like a little child too feeble to walk. - Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (St. Therese of Lisieux as Joan of Arc)
Catholic Children's Costumes
Joe Sparks, "Censoring St. Thérèse: 5 Things You Didn’t Know about the Little Flower." St. Therese of Lisieux didn't "coast into Heaven." She was difficult, even spoiled as a little girl, struggled with her devotions, and experienced very dark thoughts. So we should take heart.

When the author Kurt Vonnegut passed away his website displayed a simple black-and-white drawing showing an empty birdcage with the door wide open. I've wanted this as a tattoo for years.

Artist Horst Glasker stenciled different German words on the stair risers to describe relationships, interactions and emotions of humans.
The Holsteiner stairs In the city of Wuppertal, Germany. These 112 steps were painted by the artist Horst Glaesker -- one color per step with a German word on each.
It's a staircase painted in a rainbow of colors! Look closely and you'll also notice that each of the 112 stairs, painted by German artist Horst Glasker, also has a stenciled word on them that describes the relationships between human beings. Included are words like love, seduce, sympathy, dance, and passion. The public artwork, in Wuppertal, Germany, is called Scala (“staircase” in Italian) and was listed as one of the World's Coolest Staircases by Travel+Leisure. Arte Callejero / Street Art
installation by horst gläsker, who applied acrylic paint to each of 112 outdoor steps in wuppertal, germany
Beautifully Painted Stairs From All Over The World----Wuppertal, Germany. Wuppertal, Germany is home to a set of 112 steps that are known as the Holsteiner Stairs. With the wide array of bright colors, it’s almost like walking on a rainbow. The stairs also feature a collection of powerful German words painted on them, which translate to English phrases like, “to forgive”, “innocence”, “cause”, and “to laugh”.
