Here is this week’s list of blog posts, tweets, photographs and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
If you don’t have a twitter account yet you’re missing out on some fantastic stuff. There have been times when one friend tweets a funny story, another rants about politics or world events, a third shares a thought-provoking quote and a fourth tweets something that makes me smile. I love the juxtaposition of it all. A few of my favourites from this week:
Always answer the person who asks you “are you happy?” because anyone who cares enough to ask will probably try to make sure you are.. – Coyote Sings
Just got called a “nice little girl.” Turns out that’s the fastest way to make me into a big, mean woman. Grr. – Zora
If any country really does belief in the future of its children it will do EVERYTHING possible to give them the best education. – A Space Alien
Remembering Mom and Dad. If this isn’t a good reason to get a tattoo I don’t know what would be a good reason.
Amazing Memory. Do you know anyone with this type of memory? It would be wonderful to access more memories of friends and family who have passed away (even if they were of very mundane interactions) but I wouldn’t want to remember that many details about in general.
Skull Flower. It took me a few seconds to see the skull. I wonder how many people walked past this flower before someone noticed what it could resemble?

This week’s recommendation is actually a book my Dad told me to read. These Is My Words is the diary of Sarah Agnes Prine’s young adulthood in frontier Arizona. The story is fictional but from what I understand certain events and characters were modelled after the lives of the author’s ancestors. I’ve borrowed from real life in my own stories and know how fascinating it is to mix truth with what you think or wish might have happened.
