Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Frontier Families. I’ll be curious to see what the kids created from these technologies have to say as they grow older. In some ways, this reminds me of all of the different reactions people have to being adopted. How parents handle the topic of how their children entered the world seems to have a huge influence on how their adult kids approach it.
Why Is America Obsessed with Perfect Teeth? A long but interesting read.
Dear Young, Gay Couple in 1993. Who else is hoping that there’s a happy ending here?
R.I.P. Champis. If you read this in Safari, the browser will give you the option to translate the post into English. I’ll summarize it for those of you who can’t or choose not to do that. Remember the video of the rabbit, Champis, who herds sheep that I shared here a year or two ago? He died peacefully in his sleep a few months ago. His son, Champis Junior (CJ), has now taken over the sheep-herding at Farm Hill. I love the fact that this has become a bunny dynasty in Örnsköldsvik. Go click on the link if you want to see pictures of CJ!

can’t make love when the past is
ambiguously sneaking up on, and behind, you—
or possibly my imagination is the inspiration.
