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

Closure. This is a documentary about a woman who was transracially adopted from foster care as a baby. At 26 she began searching for her birth parents.  Those of you in the  U.S. can see this film for free if you have Netflix.  It was fantastic.

Hope via jcahannigan. I like this.

Compassionate Cure via LifeIsntBroken. I also like this. I wonder if the authors of this link and the one above it have ever met? It sure seems like they’d get along well together.

Whooping Cough at 31 in NYC. This is what it’s like to have a mild case of pertussis.

NASA scientist: We’ll find signs of alien life by 2025 via earthskyscience. Do you think this is a realistic timeframe? I don’t know enough about this topic to answer that question, but I’m assuming the first alien life we find will be something very small like a virus or bacteria.

Off-Beat Zen:

This, too, is a typical Zen understanding — that life cannot be described, only experienced. Trying to see all of life is like trying to explore a vast cave with a box of matches.

From Beatification of the Second Fall:

God fearing people are born in these hills, walk the streets of Saint’s Crossing, bow their heads on Sundays. What is at the top of the stairs gives face to their fear.

What have you been reading?
