Not such a good day for dreaming, though. That's the problem with summer - it's so inescapable. The blue skies may go on forever, but they offer little except blue. Stories grow from cracks, and from strange clouds, and tarnish, and the indistinct things moving behind shadow. I don't believe a good story must necessarily have conflict, but there does need to be complication. Summer is too smooth to be inspiring.
Since it's Friday, allow me to share some things I've recently found along the virtual shoreline ...
Reclaiming the Wise Woman, a new course by Sharon Blackie.
Puberty before age ten is the new normal ... information every parent should have.
The Pill could be altering the structure of your brain ... amongst other harmful effects. I believe the Pill is an example of how our quest for freedom is causing us so many problems.
This made me laugh.
This cartoon of the Bronte sisters also amused me. Personally I think Anne's books are vastly underrated. They are certainly my favourites from amongst those of the sisters.
Mitenska ... I have only looked at the first page of this weblog so far but absolutely must share the link as one page is enough to make me fall in love with it.
The Woman Who Married a Bear
Inspiring photography of the wild world.
Sharing with Kim Klassen's Friday Finds.
