RogerEbertPhotoEsquire mind :: my brain and yours

Re-envisioning what life is, through Roger Ebert's story: "When I am writing my problems become invisible and I am the same person I always was. All is well. I am as I should be." What makes you you? (Thanks to Martine Joelle McDonald and Laura Stinson)

The Tea Party scares me.

Amazing women rock. (TED talks by women) [A group of us on Twitter are envisioning a conference with all women speakers in a warm place next February, called What She Said, InsTEaD. Interested?]

What is your crocheted sincerity? What are you offering the world?

A Twitter friend created this gorgeous knitting pattern to help pay for nursing school. If you're a knitter, how about making this wonderful hat!

soul :: my heart and yours

I adore late night's cheeky monkey. So much so that  he has replaced the Johnny Depp link for this week. Gasp. YOU MIGHT NEED TO CALL 9-1-1. Smile. (Thanks to Emma Alvarez Gibson)


Just as important as what's included every day is what's not included.

  1. I think the What ‘She Said InsTED’ idea is brilliant. I’m putting my hand up now.

  2. You do make us think…give us food for thought…and then make us realize what things really make us happy….thank you.

  3. I read the Tea Party article that you highlighted. I view this movement as scary and dark, and I believe that it’s probably going to grow. Fear causes strange things to occur, and people are so ready to grasp anything (i.e. Glen Beck’s nonsense) that will give them a sense of power and unity with others. I hope they will come to their senses sooner rather than later.

  4. I really truly love this. So many of my favorite things.

    I love Craig when he calls me his Chunky Monkey. (Because I know he can see me through that camera…)

  5. I think we must be afraid when people chose to glamorize a terrorist act – because that is what the Boston Tea Party was…. Of course since we “won” history wrote it as an act of “patriotism”. If you read the news briefs of Al’Quaida you’ll see the same thing. Great – now people are scared of me…
