Here is this week’s list of blog posts, illustrations, photographs, comics, articles and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Virginia Francie Sterrett’s Fairy Tale Illustrations are magical. If only she could have lived to know her own happy ending.

Young, Gay and Homeless. I was blinking back tears halfway through the article. Had I been born into a different family this so easily could have been my life.

National Flags Made Out of Food. Delicious and educational!

The 75 Best LIFE Photos. Not every photograph in this collection seemed worthy of inclusion in this sort of list. The vast majority of them, though, were absolutely incredible.

The Enigma of Amigara Fault. A spine-tingling tale of what happens when human-shaped holes are discovered near a fault line.


So it turns out that I didn’t actually read all of Dr. Seuss’ books as a kid. Recently I stumbled across a few of his less known works. Everyone – young, old and somewhere in-between – should read I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. The narrator of this book wants to escape his troubles by finding Solla Sollew. The question is, will he make it?

What have you been reading?

    The one with the human holes is interesting, but I couldn’t understand the ending :-))

    • *Spoiler alert* for anyone who hasn’t read it yet – 

      The long, spindly things coming out of the rocks are the people who climbed into the holes on the other side of the mountain. Their bodies were just stretched out and reshaped. Creepy stuff!
