Suggestion Saturday: November 12, 2016

saturday-blogsHere is this week’s list of paintings, poems, essays, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

For Bradie. I shared a different Klara Bowman painting next week, and I’ll share another with you all next week. Look at all three of them before you google her, though.

Here Are the Reasons Why I Think Prostitution Should Be Legalized via wendygarfinkle. I couldn’t agree with this more.

A Conversation with a Woman Who Walks via LindaKSienkwicz. While I’m a big fan of both walking and reading, I never would have thought to combine them. Have any of my followers ever tried this?

Duck, Death, and the Tulip via brainpicker. This is the best book review I’ve read in my entire life.

A Poem to Get Rid of Fear. Watch this even if you’re not generally a fan of poetry. I couldn’t get the video to embed in this post, but the imagery and message in it were truly fantastic.

Hate Trumps Love via dorothysnarker. What a difficult thing to write.

From Twenty-First Century Victorians:

But the Victorian ethos is not dead, not by a long shot.

It lives on, manifesting itself in our contemporary upper middle class’s behavior. While some aspects have gone the way of the waistcoat, the belief that the bourgeoisie holds a place of moral superiority over the other classes persists.
