“Timeless but timely pieces of knowledge, wisdom, information, inspiration, and radiance out in the world that illuminate us when we encounter them … helping us explore what it means to live a meaningful life.” A nice self-description by Maria Popova in this interview, revealing what her masterful blog, Brain Pickings represents.
Subscribe to her newsletter, and you’ll get weekly email updates of her blogs. Today, for example, was the intellectual trifecta of Stephen Hawking, Hannah Arendt, and Henry David Thoreau. I can almost guarantee that you’ll thoroughly enjoy reading Ms. Popova’s compilations. Brain Pickings was launched in 2006, and even though this Mother Jones piece was published in 2012, midway between the birth of Pickings and now, it is an attractive window into Maria’s beautiful mind.
