The things that made me think…or smile…or giggle…or about have an aneurism this week.
This post from Trouble Face Mom about Christians and Halloween and what it can mean or does mean or doesn’t mean and ways to make it the experience that makes memories for our children and for us.
This post from Alex Kimmell about ways to break through creative blocks. I think I’ve needed this recently. Not that I’m doing any of it but just thinking about it breaks a little bit of the log-jam in my head.
I’m one of those who will talk about a plan for a long time, so this post from Mythic Rhythm really resonates with me. There comes a point at which I’ve got to get out of my head and just commit to something. Just do it. Not that tattoos because I’ve got plenty of those, although I do have one that needs to be finished and there’s another that I’d like to get started. Yet another thing for me to start a savings fund.
This piece, linked by Susannah Conway, about using “they” instead of the incredibly awkward “he or she”. They can be singular. If it was good enough for Shakespeare and Lewis Carroll, then it’s good enough for me. I’ve struggled with this ever since I became aware of the fact that it was *wrong* to use they. No more. I’ll take the correction should someone have the gall to give it.
And this one from the Atlantic about fixing Day Light Savings Time. While I greatly appreciated getting to sleep an extra hour this morning (even though the puppies woke me up at 6:30, just like normal), I’m going to be hating life in the spring when we switch back. Daylight Savings Time makes me wish I lived in Arizona.
This series of photos of costumed folks in their homes.
These photos taken by a 17 year old (!!) of her dogs. So very sweet and so very creative!
