Do you have your favorite places on the web that you visit? Of course you do. We all do. One of mine is Brain Pickings.
Maria Popova has created the kind of site that makes me think she is superhuman. How does she find all of these things? Exactly how prolific is she? Is there an end to the amount of amazing finds she can brings us? The answers seem to be: Magic, infinitely, no; no end.
In Popova’s own words:
Brain Pickings is my one-woman labor of love — a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why. Mostly, it’s a record of my own becoming as a person — intellectually, creatively, spiritually — and an inquiry into how to live and what it means to lead a good life.
