Here is this week’s list of blog posts, videos, poetry and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Words for a Younger Self. What would you say if you could speak to the person you were 10, 30, 50 years ago? My advice would focus on a few bad decisions and missed opportunities. If it wasn’t possible to change those events I’d try to convince younger-me to worry less.
Are Some People Born Evil? Not sure what I think about this yet.
Radar Eleven – Color Me Katie. Someday I want to have dinner with Katie Sokoler. There is something deeply endearing about interacting whimsically with the world around you as an adult.
Homeless Man. Even after six years of big-city life it’s still psychologically troubling to walk past a homeless person who looks miserable. I don’t always feel comfortable giving them money but I cannot pretend not to see them.
Biblical Marriage: the Math is Wrong. One day this may need to be expanded to its own post but what is with the idea that there’s One True Way ™ to structure a relationship?
I haven’t read anything good this week. What have you been reading?

great ideas about the run away shadows …. she is so patient, waiting for the right person to walk by.
i wanna know exactly what you would say to your younger self!
i would tell mine to think of myself more and stop trying to make anyone else happy. 😀
I don’t know if I could be that patient for the sake of art.
I’ll email you what I’d say to my younger self. 🙂
