Around_AboutA collection of links I love, sites I like, interesting reads or cool happenings nearby
.

Tears through laughter is my favorite emotion, and it's exactly what happened when I read Jen Hatmaker's "A Fake Film Crew, Armpit Paste, and Spilled Beer: A Day in the Life".  Mercy, that girl is funny.

The Language of Lament by my friend Diana for Deeper Family.  Suffering is hard and Diana doesn't try to explain it or deny it; she helps us see the provision for enduring.

A new-to-me blog but one I'm glad to have found, Beth Woolsey's Five Kids is a Lot of Kids; I clicked a link to her response to Kim Hall's "FYI (if you're a teenage girl)" (which I'm not linking to because the post broke the internet already) but rather than link to that, her We Do Train Wrecks Here set me to wonderin' right away.  Another guaranteed smile-maker.

Wanna make magic?  Click here for a dose of fascination.

Write a letter to your future self.  Far enough in the future that you completely forget you did. 

Start clicking words.  See what happens.

Have you seen The map that shows where America came from?  I don't know how they come up with these things, but it's a fascinating at America's melting potness.

Short & sweet from me today; what has given you pause to wonder on the internets this week?  DO share in comments!
