I don't know about you, but there are some weeks where I just feel deeper, and more eager to think and process and wonder. This has been one of those weeks. I've found many thought provoking articles across the web, heavily from my daily New Yorker emails. Here are my favorite reads. If I could share the National Georgraphic articles I've read in their paper editions I've caught up on this week, I totally would. But I suppose that's the drawback of beautiful paper magazines. Anyways, happy reading! (or saving the link for later like I always do...)
On Being Sure (and adulthood)--great article.
In The Blink Of An Eye-- in other words, YOLO
Look Again--about Edith Pearlman and her unusual realist short stories. (the way they describe her character reminded me of Harriet The Spy)
Terror In The Mosul Museum (if you haven't already heard about the destruction of cultural treasures and historical artifacts.) Would the Iraqi Monuments Men please stand up.
23 Make-Ahead Lunches (some look amazing and some look...."healthy", fair warning.)
The Joshua Generation--an interesting article about Obama's role in history. I have many thoughts on the topic and found it thought provoking. "They were more than satisfied; they were relieved—such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”
On Being Mortal--a PBS 54 minute documentary about how Doctors deal with the communication and tact on the topic of death and aging. Can't wait to watch it!
Braid Ecourses for Creative Entrepeneurs, definitely keeping this one in mind for down the road.
