My two little– well, younger– brothers came up this weekend so I’ve been sidetracked by games of scrabble and talk of life and adventures. It seems entirely crazy to go out and have a beer with them. They are no longer the little boys that I remember but charming, handsome men, one of which just starting to get a touch of grey at the temples. Little Miss is incredibly taken with her uncles and the visit was all too short.
As much as we are connected by various technologies, nothing replaces being in the same room and sharing a meal together.
That is all to say, links are late. I know I was doing what I ought and would choose to do again but I’m sorry to best the deadline. I am trying to get better at the scheduling thing. Hope you had a pleasant Saturday and are enjoying your Sunday.
Here is what I enjoyed this week when not hangin wit my bros…
I don’t know how I missed including this last week but it is so good it can lead us off this week: A rant on loving photography – all kinds.
Seth Godin had some advice for Leap Day that is just as important and potentially altering any day.
“The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.” – Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson via It’s Okay to be Smart.
“Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also… If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.” – John Steinbeck to his son on love, 1958
How the e-co-system is ruining the world (or: learn how to talk to people and be nice)
“[May] the worm of conscience still begnaw thy soul.” – Richard III via Shakespearean Insult Generator
Sometimes it is littlest of things that make us laugh and can make the biggest difference for others. A reminder of such from the Bloggess (and Simon Pegg, Penn Jillette, Jeri Ryan, Will W, Brian Boitano and Matthew Broderick). I especially love her positive take-away message.
