It’s a new month. And we’re thinking it’s time for a challenge of sorts.

We’re declaring April the Month of Discovery.  The 30 days when we–and that means you as well as us–venture out, try new things, think new thoughts, find people and stories and happenings we never knew existed.

What—or who–makes your life more interesting, beautiful, organized, manageable? Is there some recently discovered—or rediscovered– process, product, or person that inspires you, entertains you, or really makes you think?  

Feel free to go big or start small. We’re ready to celebrate a season where everything is new again.

Including us.

(You can share your discovery by leaving a comment here. If this will be your first visit, it may take a little while for your message to appear. Or, feel free to email us at ourownsweettime@gmail.com; with your permission, we’ll share your thoughts and findings in a future post.

  1. I accept.

    First? I’m late to the party, but I’m discovering audiobooks. I finally pulled the trigger on an audiobook of my own after spending quite a bit of money downloading books for Maggie: Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, Nancy Drew, Magic School Bus. Every night after our reading ritual, she falls asleep to the sounds of a narrator weaving magic through storytelling. On the few occasions I’ve fallen asleep in her bed, I was also lulled to sleep by the adventures and misadventures of characters who appeal to all ages. That Junie B.

    And it took me several months, but I finally pulled the trigger and bought my own. Maybe it was the $20 cost, maybe it was the fear of commitment to an 18 hour long book, or maybe it was deep-seated feeling that I was “cheating” by listening instead of reading myself, but I have to admit that even as I type this, I’m anxious to get off the computer, put on my traditional headphones (no uncomfortable earphones for this girl), and see what’s happening with Minnie in The Help.

    Thank goodness for risk-taking. Thank goodness for a little extra money in my account this month (no thanks to the IRS, mind you), and thank goodness for audiobooks. Even after only 4 hours in, I’m hooked.

    And I’m rediscovering John Lennon. After all, downloading an audiobook simply wouldn’t make sense without some more music to feed my soul. My girl’s favorite? Oh Yoko!

    • Julie – I responded to this when you commented, and something didn’t click. Probably me. 😉 Just wanted to say I am a total audiobook junkie. Plan to shoot a pic this weekend for a blog next week. Fortunately, my beautiful Belmar library has a bunch-o-books on CD so my addiction isn’t breaking the bank. Plan to reserve The Help today.

    • So excited to see your contribution Julie mc since I too just discovered audio books and am totally hooked! And also because I thought that The Help was a tremendous book with amazing characters. Enjoy!
