Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poem, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Where Freedom Flies via jdubqca. Longterm readers might recognize the username of the guy who wrote this poem. I’ve shared his stuff with you a half a dozen times over the last few years. What I liked the most about this poem is how much information it’s able to pack into a fairly small space. J. Matthew is really good at that, and it’s one of the reasons why I love his work so much.
From Back When I Was a Ghost:
The point of this story isn’t about climbing things that I probably shouldn’t have been. This is a story about being a ghost.
We Are In a Constant State of Becoming. This was great.
The Joy of Fear via InertialConfine. What I find most interesting about this post is how clearly it explains why some of us enjoy being scared so much. I was raised by parents who weren’t fans of haunted houses or the scary side of Halloween one bit, but I still grew up to be someone who loves all of that stuff.
McGowan first talked to me about that in 1998, and I immediately began to feed peanuts to the crows who would hang around the park where I brought my dog every day.
The birds very quickly—within a few days– recognized me—swooping over and calling to me—to get their handout.
