Each weekend I will share a list of  blog posts, comic strips, poems, videos and/or other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

How to Say I Love You, The Equation.

The Algebra of love.

How Has Abandoning Christianity Affected Your Family? Bruce Gerencser recently blogged about what life has been like for him, his wife and their six children since he de-converted from Christianity. It is one of my all-time favourite posts from his website.

The Idea Incubator – Work While You Sleep. This is a short video about brainstorming new ideas and solving business and personal problems while you sleep. I haven’t formed an opinion of this technique yet but I am intrigued by the concept of it.

Daodejing – Other Voices, Verse 78. Here’s a short quote from this blog post. It snagged my attention immediately:

  3. Oh, I do love links! This will be a fun thing to look forward to in your posts!
    I’ve told you I’m reading Rachel DuPre journal. I can hardly put it down, but I’m trying to make it last. I realize it’s a work of fiction, but it does give you a good feel of what it was like during that time in history…and I like that! Anthony Bourdain’s new book Medium Raw is chomping at the bit to be read!!

    • I’m so glad that you like that book. I wasn’t sure if the subject matter would be too dark for your tastes.

    • You’re welcome! Lacy is one of my favourite poets. (And I’d say that even if she wasn’t a friend.)
