Sometimes it is hard to tap into our spiritual selves or find time to nurture our intellectual curiosity. Here is a section that reflects on some nourishing materials from around the web and related media channels in order to get us thinking, get us feeling, and get us reflecting on the lives we are living in this big, beautiful world. **Some Adult/Mature Themes May Appear in Links and Other Attached Material**
“To Connect. To Share.”
One of my favorite shows is returning for a new season: Ted Lasso. This isn’t a promotion of it or for it, but it is worth watching because of its tone, which is a weird thing to say about a show. But the simple fact is that Ted Lasso is one of the purest, most kind, most affirming pieces of media I’ve ever watched, and I have seen several episodes of Dora the Explorer.
But pushing past that show, I’m sharing this extraordinary correspondence from the star of that show, Jason Sudekis, to a reporter acquaintance that does something that so rarely happens in public. It calls out its writer and its receiver with the needs of intimacy, comfort, friendship and authentic connection. It is, simply, beautiful––occasioned by a loss and responded to with the care and attention of someone who clearly does care.
