Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, photos and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Dirty Feet. Did you know that washing someone’s feet in biblical times was like cleaning their toilet today? I’ve never heard this before. If there are any biblical scholars lurking out there, what do you know about it?
If Men Could Menstruate. One of the benefits of growing up with a nurse for a mother is that I never thought of my monthly cycle as something shameful, disgusting or spiritually significant. It was just a bodily function like digestion or respiration. I suspect that these attitudes were more common a few generations ago or maybe I’ve just happened to meet far more people who agree with me than is representative of this view in the generation population?
Why I Think Being a Nerdy, Bisexual Female Rocks. I thought I was the only person to have contingency plans in place for even the most unlikely scenarios. It appears, though, that I am not alone in this regard. 😉
Had Edgar Allan Poe Been an Emergency Nurse. A funny poem about an emergency nurse treating an intoxicated patient.
The Art of Cutting Leaves By Nature’s Art. This is what it would look like if the concept of artistic expression could be distilled into four leaves.
What have you been reading?

excellent! that leaf cutting is so beautiful. and i love the snarky article about menstruation! ha.
I thought the leaf pictures were photoshopped at first. The level of detail is amazing.
Re: If Men Could Menstruate
I like the line, “penis envy is “natural” to women – though having such an unprotected organ might be said to make men vulnerable”
That article on menstuation was hilarious!
The leaves? Well, I can’t even imagine having that kind of patience. So amazing!
