SOOOO many good things this week!
Jean Reinhardt, author of A Pocket Full of Shells, has a stunningly rich website, studded with wonderful features. Watch the dance videos! Read her flash fiction, poetry, short story! Follow her links! You’re welcome!
Beyond the Window Box is a beautiful site that began as an exploration of small-space gardening and has expanded to a visual feast.
Holly Jahangiri (the real one) provides a Punctuation Check-Up that’s invaluably informative and immeasurably entertaining.
My second-favorite anthropologist (Sara Marian is my favorite), Barbara J. King, is retiring from teaching at William and Mary. You can watch her entire almost-final lecture (this is a public one; the final lecture will be a class lecture in December) here. It’s an hour of wonderful insight about animal emotion. What a treasure!
Holly (still the real one) shared the link to Yuckylicious: Exploring the World’s Worst Cookbooks. I believe I made some of these, back when I was learning to cook. I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry.
Finally, have you ever wondered if you’re actually a character in a historical novel? The marvelous Tara Sparling, who is about 30 degrees off true (and I do like that in a person), provides a quiz so you can find out.
Well, that should keep you busy for a while!
