Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
Sultana’s Dream. This is one of those links that I think my readers will enjoy more if I don’t tell them anything about it ahead of time.
Why No One Should Talk About “Emotional Adultery” Ever Again via virtusetveritas. Samantha Field is on a small list of religious bloggers I still read. This is a great example of why I grok her stuff so much.
The radical lesson is not to shame people into giving money.
It is to teach people that the invisible meek and huddled masses are us.
Remember that jejune hippie phrase from the 60s?
I am also a you.
From Endless Love:
Love is a trade-off, the prevailing wisdom goes: we can either soar briefly to the highest heights or we can have contentment for many years. It is fruitless to despair like Emma and Hannah, because no one can have both.
Or can they? New research suggests that common wisdom might be wrong, and that a significant percentage of long-term couples remain deeply in love.
I don’t normally discuss books here that I’m still in the process of reading, but The Dragon Who Chooses Twice has earned an exemption from that rule.
One of the things I like the most about the young adult genre is the way it catapults you back to what it feels like to be a teenager (or a middle schooler, or a preschooler). Certain stories bring back all of the emotions that I felt at those ages, even the ones that have long since been rationalized away by time and age.
This is one of those tales. If you give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I am so far.
