Bits and Clips for September 2020

This bits and clips post is a monthly feature on this blog of the best that I saw, read, or heard on the internet during the past month.

This month was a difficult one, with the loss of several million acres of forest due to fires, the apocalyptic, asphyxiating air quality and eerie dark orange midday light in California, cresting 200,000 dying of the pandemic in the US (which is more than died in the Vietnam and Korean War combined), and the untimely passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The links and memes here cover those things, sprinkled in with much else. Especially check out the paintings and photography with the memes below.

I hope you find something inspiring, motivational, helpful, and interesting in this long collection, and I hope you look all the way through. Several of you may find that I’ve shared your own content! You are such a great group, it gives me hope for the world.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
