Suggestion Saturday: February 27, 2016

Here is this week’s list of comic strips, essays, poems, short stories, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

The First Warm Day via CuriousSnowflak. Toronto has already had its first warm day of 2016. I hope the same can be said for all of my readers who live in cold places.

What Happens to Old Batteries. This made me a little sad.

Zip the Drapeline via cdthieringer. What I liked the most about this essay was how the last paragraph tied everything together. Very nicely done.

The Revenant. Fair warning: this poem is snarky and irreverent. It was also extremely funny, though.

Ten Simple Ways to Serve Your Local Community via OperationWarm. The most interesting thing about this list to me is that it didn’t include anything that was flashy or glamorous. It was all quiet, simple stuff that won’t get you a spot on the evening news but that is desperately needed in a lot of communities.

From Why Your Brain Actually Works Better in Winter:

You could even think of this reduced winter neural activity as your brain entering a kind of “eco mode,” allowing it to perform as well as it does in summer but while consuming fewer resources.

From Anabaptist:

Once we got started, my brother and I talked for hours on end. We talked about what heaven was like. We wondered what life was like outside of New Lancaster. We talked about the best way to button suspenders— for some reason Jakob just couldn’t see that one strap running over the right shoulder was superior. We argued over the best way to milk and who was the better singer of hymns, but we never questioned where the light came from, until we lost it.
