Taking it personally, missing beauty, the turtle with a mustache, the end of the typewriter and the marathon dog

"No human thing is of serious importance." ~Plato
This is becoming a favorite feature for me to put together for this blog!  I love sharing my favorite things I have been reading.  Here is the best of the net from this week:

  • Don't take it personally- Super short post with a profound statement.  
  • What are you missing?- This is old news that I just came across at random this week but it did get me thinking about what kind of beauty I might be missing just because I am to busy to notice.  Be sure to check out the original story here.
  • Are you looking for a turtle with a mustache?- This is intended as advise for creative professionals but the concept can be applied to so many other things.  We have probably all searched for a turtle with a mustache at least once in our lives.
  • Pictures of writers and their typewriters- The news has been spreading like wild fire around the blogosphere that the last manufacturer of typewriters in the world is shutting down. Turns out that statment is somewhat misleading. This homage to some of the great writers and their tool of the trade is enjoyable non the less.
  • Stray dog runs Maryland half marathon- I love stories about running doggies and this one is just too cute!


  1. Your last post with a list of links was seriously awesome. I haven't checked out the links here today, I don't have time, but last time I stopped and read every one of them. Loved them all! Keep it up!

  2. Thanks Aubrey! I'm so glad!
