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

Vivian Maier’s Street Photography. I don’t think I’ve ever recommended an entire blog before but this one is well-worth your time. Vivian Maier worked as a nanny for wealthy families in New York from the 1950s to the 1990s. In her spare time she walked around the city and took often-haunting photographs of people from every walk of life and her  100,000+ photographs were discovered after her death in 2009. This is a blog I’ll be savouring for quite a while!

Taming the Wild. This article about the unexpected outcomes of domesticating foxes makes me wonder how people have changed over the past 30,000 years. We know that people who lived back then looked like us…I wonder if they acted like us as well?

Satellite and Geologic Maps of Japan Earthquake/Tsunami. A bird’s eye view of the devastation. Somehow this makes it more real to me than reading news articles.

Falling Upward. I wonder if the book is as intriguing as the poem?

On the Banks of the River Lex.The first half of this story was confusing, the second half thought-provoking. To say anything else may spoil it for you!

A final thought:

Never try to tell everything you know. It may take too short a time. – Norman Ford
