Here is this week’s list of blog posts and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
But the more we learn about our own perspective and the more we see that it is just that, our perspective based on all that has happened to us and probably most influenced by whatever scarring we have undergone, the more we can relate to others and understand that they are doing the same thing, working from their perspective which, like ours, has been molded by whatever they have undergone.
The Tale of My Broken Neck. Why you should always wear a helmet when riding a bike, skateboarding, skating, etc. This story includes graphic descriptions of the aftermath of a bike accident. The rest of the site may not be work-safe. Consider yourself warned. 😉

“the whole beast: nose to tail eating” by fergus henderson. some of the ingredients he uses in the recipes seem gross, but the way he describes them makes them seem very appetizing. i’d like to try some out.

Beaitiful short story. I’ve been reading Darwin’s origin of species.
I’ve never been able to finish Origin of Species. Do you like it so far?

this one is on my library list! i just read a carl sagan book (shadows of forgotten ancestors) & he references darwin quite a bit.
