Some wisdom from the late Joseph Campbell to begin:

"A bit of advice
Given to a young Native American
At the time of his initiation:
As you go the way of life,
You will see a great chasm. Jump.
It is not as wide as you think."

As a segue, what popular author do you think said the following in response to being asked about the one writer he could meet, dead or alive?

Changes are afoot at On Being. A brief behind-the-scenes tour as we look for new creative space.

A recap of our favorite bits of curiosity from this week, including epistolary correspondence, Krista re-entering the Twitter fray, and a revival post. And a whole lot more!

On this Mother's Day weekend, a time to celebrate the women in our lives and be real about parenting. Along with art on happiness, brainstorming reactions, and emerging forms of spirituality in Ireland.

Our weekly wrap-up with poetry and prose, stories of Easter dishes from afar and links to things we're reading in the news and blogging worlds!

Vigorous discussions on what we're owed and what we earn, the slow work of healing, and stories of inspiration about being alone in this busy world.

With all that's happened this week, language and images that create places of peace and reflection and connection with our fellow human beings.

Images of thundersnow in Minnesota, cherry blossoms in Japan. Words on science and truth from Auden and Krauss. Time-lapse graphic recording on vulnerability. And sometimes healing is a process never-ending. Our capsule of all things On Being.

Krista dishes on cooking with the BBC. We remember Roger Ebert's smile. And thoughts on fear and grieving, the coming spring, and a culture of advocacy.

This week, Trent Gilliss asks how we might cover the papal process. And our capsule shares the many ways people are building the "beloved community" and how a rock band was inspired by a 20th-century Jewish philosopher. And we remember Rabbi David Hartman.
