Here is this week’s list of blog posts, comic strips, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
The Path Through the Trees via PenguinNina. One of the things I like the most about taking long walks out in nature is that you don’t have to make very many decisions. This post nicely explains how it works.
Open Letter to Whoever Asked If I Was Faking It via Shayweasel. Part of me is amazed me that anyone would have this response to a friend or family member who was sick. The other part of me isn’t. Not everyone has empathy.
Why Assuming “Everyone Is A Jerk” Makes Your Life Better. This dovetails really nicely with the last link in this post.
The Self-Healer. Too funny.
Now it’s a little known fact about me that every time I’m anywhere near a creek someone falls into the water. This alarming trend started way back when I was six years old or so and playing at my friend Leslie B’s house, which had a creek running through the backyard.
From Coming to America:
My white friends made a lot of assumptions about the nature of our relationships. There was the assumption that I was friends with them because they weren’t racist. Racists were evil, and my being their friend was a testament that I didn’t see them as evil, but as good.
