Suggestion Saturday: May 14, 2011

Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, surveys and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

One Cup at a Time. One of the most relaxing, stress-bursting posts I’ve ever read. It’s like a virtual hug from a loved one.

Go to Church! And Then Tell Me About It. I was hoping to participate this weekend but it doesn’t look like it will work out. (It is on my to-do list for 2011, though!) If you’re able to visit your local UUA church on such short notice please share your experiences through the survey embedded in this link. The questions it poses are exactly what should be at least the occasional focus of every organization – religious or otherwise. First impressions matter!

May 8 (untitled poem). This is why I love poetry.

From Inclusion:

…my thoughts had already turned to someone who had hurt me deeply. And I found myself not only genuinely able to send those affirming and thankful thoughts to that person, but greatly enriched in doing so.

On Cavemen. A good explanation for I get twitchy when people apply what they think they know about “cavemen” to modern-day romantic relationships.

I just started reading Joel Best’s Damned Lies and Statistics: Untangling Numbers from the Media, Politicians and Activists. It’s absolutely incredible to read about all of the ways in which statistics can be interpreted to support what we already believe to be true.

What have you been reading?

  1.  I feel truly honored to be included in your suggestion Saturday!  You always find fantastic stuff and to have you consider me one of those finds seems nothing more than absolutely incredible.  Not sure I could read a book such as Joel Best’s no matter how good!  At the moment I’m reading Laughing Buddha by David Lanoue, the third of his novels revolving around haiku–fun and informative both.  Cheers! by David Lanoue, the third of his novels revolving around haiku–fun and informative both.  Cheers!

    • You’re so very welcome, Daphne. Thank you for starting your poetry blog. I always get excited when I notice a new entry from it on my RSS feed.

      The Laughing Buddha book sounds good. I’ll have to see if my local library has a copy of it.

  2.  i looked up a close uu church Lydia … went to the website of the church and first thing i saw was at the top left side it said Make a $ Pledge … i looked further at the page and my stomach turned … just can’t do it … I’m too far gone I guess …
