Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from a very rainy and cold Pacific NW. A very fine Sunday indeed (for a hot beverage). Enjoy!

On the beach at night alone,
As the old mother sways her to and fro, 
singing her husky song,
As I watch the bright stars shining, 
I think a thought of the clef of
the universes, and of the future.
~Walt Whitman

Curious Stories from the Week
🎄At Christmas, nothing is more nostalgic for me than “Silent Night.” My Grandmother - Delilah Knight - adored this song, it was meshed with her memories of Christmas and her German heritage. With Christmas so close, I give you one of the best on the history of this song that has permeated all of our memories of the season.

Book Notes
📖Not one of the most amazing books by prose but by idea. Why is it some learn from intense moments in life and others give up? Crucible moments indeed can make us stronger.
Quote I’m Pondering
“You have power over your mind — not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

What’s with the name, Sunday Roast and Stories Mindfully Curated? Sunday is a good day to do a weekly review. A time to take stock in the past week and get ready for the next. Which is always done with a fine coffee beverage, hence the Roast part. Through the week I share articles and stories that mattered in the long-run, not bits that are of pop culture or political. My goal is always to seek information that is as unbiased as possible, interesting, or enriching. In other words, Mindfully Curated for you.
Did you enjoy this issue?
