Assorted lovelies for your reading and viewing pleasure….offered up weekly on a pretty blog platter!
I love learning and stretching my perspective; I love sharing what I find with others, and learning and stretching more in the process.
I offer up this virtual Sunday paper, filled with things I have read and enjoyed recently, in the spirit of learning and sharing.
I invite opinions, editorials, and ideas for future topics or articles…
And now, this week’s buffet of ideas….
Kristen Lamb’s Blog is a wonderful resource for writers. I’d been meaning to read this for a while, and finally got to it this week – serendipitously, as this is a time of deepening for me, in my writing, and in life.
It’s been a week of diverse and reckless learning, for me. I would love to share it all, all at once, but there is just so much of it….I’ll compromise by offering a bit here, and then more, later….
Sarah Selecky’s blog is home to the revision process I am currently exploring. It’s deepening my fiction, and I am loving the revision process, and what I am discovering about my characters and their stories.
The children have discovered Minecraft, and are often joyfully immersed in it, Jeremiah in survival mode, and Annalise creating entire worlds in creative mode. This PBS Idea Channel video fits our life – except that I think adults would do better to just allow kids to discover, learn, and create, with no curriculum or agenda involved.
Another wonderful discovery I made this week is Lifehacker. Chock-full of more practical learning than I could possibly fit into my one three-pound brain, it’s going to call me back, again and again…here’s my first foray.
The Sunday Edition had this intriguing piece on Radical Rest Homes…which fit with an episode of This Old House wherein a young family built a home that would carry them through all the changes aging might bring….
And at Becoming Minimalist, I read this exploration of simple living that resonated with my soul.
My lifelong best friend and spiritsister, Eden Mabee, has recently been indulging her passion for photography, which is inspiring to me. At her blog, Many Worlds From Many Minds, her photos remind her of another passion…
Back over to Lifehacker, this time to explore ways to live a happier life.
At my WANA friend August McLaughlin’s Blog, I was inspired to do more of something that has also been a huge part of my unschooling life…saying yes.
Hows and Whys:
And back again to Lifehacker, to consider why we tend to fear change, and ways we can learn to accept it more gratefully.
And back to Lifehacker yet again, for one of my deep passions – COFFEE!
Smiles and Laughter:
- How “Fifty Shades of Hay” Led to the Amish Erotics
- Kitty in a basket – I dare you not to smile!
- Are sharks less scary with human teeth? YOU be the judge!
I hope you enjoyed this wild romp through the inner wanderings of my mind….next week, I’ll be back to do it again! =)
