Here is this week’s list of blog posts and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Death of Dreams. What happens when you defer your dreams.

The Art of Clean Up. Organization taken to the extreme. It must have taken quite a while to tidy up some of the items in these photos!

Right vs. Left: Under Deconstruction. Some of you follow Naked Pastor already but this is a phenomenal discussion on the tension between unity and what you should do when someone you care about is supporting something you strongly oppose for moral/ethical reasons. I don’t have any answers here – I’m just learning from the wisdom of others.

Why We Forgive. A hint: it isn’t about or for the person who wronged us at all.

From Do We Live On?

We live on in the effects of our actions that touch other people, in our words, and in our works. We live on in our children and those who remember us, but tiny bits of us continue

on and on even without memory, as long as human culture continues, as long as people live by the examples set by others, as long as having been loved helps us to love.

So it turns out that I won’t be able to send out book recommendations through the email list after all.

This week’s recommendation is Dani’s Story. Dani Lierow was severely neglected (and probably abused) for the first seven years of her life. When her new parents brought her home she was developmentally like an infant – she couldn’t speak, wasn’t potty trained and had trouble with solid foods. This book isn’t about abuse, though. It’s about the life she and her family built after it.

What have you been reading?

  1. Interesting book that one. I haven’t been reading much, and will read less now that I’m in school. Textbooks are us ;-(
