Here is this week’s list of blog posts, photos, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web. (Photo credit – 7thsens from FreeDigitalPhotos.net.)

Spice Market in Old Delhi. Incredible photographs of an open-air market. I love the bright colours! Do people bring their own containers to take purchases home in? How does one keep spices or other light/heat/moisture-sensitive items fresh?

Anger Makes You Forget Other People Are People. Sadly true.

Pour Some Sugar On Me. Not all vices are created equal. It would be better, I think, to eliminate our cultural tendency to label every less-than-perfect habit as a vice. It’s too harsh a term for many of the activities it commonly describes.

Gumption. What it takes to write a book.

Keiko Fuduka Earns 10th Degree Black Belt in Judo. She’s the first woman and only the fourth person to ever accomplish this. Oh, and she’s 98 years old.

Brad Warner’s Sex, Sin and Zen: A Buddhist Exploration of Sex from Celibacy to Polyamory and Everything in Between was an eye-opening read recently. I hadn’t know that Buddhism includes many, often conflicting, “denominations” (for lack of a better term)  or that it doesn’t teach the concept of sexual sin.

What have you been reading?
