A Few Ideas For You
Open Grove Claudia really outdid herself this week when she wrote a nifty little post on hatred. Claudia is always good. This post goes from low key, but very smart to mind bending. If you have the time for the population demographics lecture at the end of the post, it is downright brilliant and insightful.
Mel who writes Melsdream is a blog that grows on you. Mel wrote about the press today, and how they sensationalized the flooding to the point of creating a situation that didn't exist. Of greater significance to me were two other posts, the first about hitting a deer on the way to work, and the second, about other people's opinions. I just see a lot of wisdom concisely written. I am always short on wisdom, personally.
If you haven't taken the opportunity to read WnG of Whole New G yet and met a total Barack Obama-supporter who hasn't figured out that she should be in politics running for office, and a rabid Boston Celtics fan, who loves spicy tuna sushi, well you haven't lived yet. Why? Because she is sooooooo much more than that.
It is through WnG that I met Woman With No Regrets who carries the nickname NoR. She just bought a house, after a divorce, which she is working to get over, even though she goes climbing in the mountains where she lives with her friends and ex-husband almost every weekend. She is an excellent writer, very open, and very involved, which makes her very compelling. If you really need more, she will resume posting pictures soon. Of what, you'll have to find out for yourself.
None of these are in any particular order, with the exception of these that I have saved for last. The Professionals. Or, they ought to be.
Skinny Little Blond writes the most magnificent fiction with fantastic imagery. If Sartre or Camus were alive, they would be assigning her short stories to their classes.
Glamourpuss is well-known for her exploits in pole dancing, trapeze, the pitfalls of dating, and the exposition on various forms of proper dress for the well dressed, not to mention the various appropriate vintages of the finest chocolate. She also has this little blog that she writes these small pieces in that are simply marvelous called Clairvoyance. It's well worth reading.
And then there's Heart in San Francisco. She belongs here, because she is such an excellent writer. Her skills pair up well with her fertile imagination, her smarts, and her insights. She is not to be missed.
Last is the only paid professional, James Burnette and his blog Burnettiquette. Once you get involved there, it becomes quite addictive. It's almost like a public service. Either that or James Burnette knows exactly how I think. Or worse, he may be a whole lot smarter than me. Actually, come to think of it, that's a whole lot better! It may be best for you to decide for yourself.
You have a whole weekend, and the NBA playoffs don't look like they have a lot more to go, so have a fabulous weekend, and enjoy some quality reading!
