Sunday ponderings

Another cornucopia (thanks Alexa!) of things I’ve found on my travels, that I thought you might like:

– I love the Urban Jungle blog and loved this little insight in to their blogging process and their video walk around Paris….if only cities were more committed to ‘greening’ (and what a wonderful collaborative process they have forged!)

– On a similar ‘green’ them, look at this! Tree drawings! Not drawings of trees, no! Drawings made by trees! Totally cool! Am off hunting, this weekend, for a suitably ‘artistically gifted’ tree 😉 There’s a particularly lovely weeping willow-type tree at the local park. How relaxing it must be to watch it ‘in action’!

This BBC article, ‘Back-up brains: the era of digital mortality?’ Fascinating!

– Look at this….a guy sets up a website – shipyourenemiesglitter – it goes viral. Less than a week later he sells it for US$85,000. Thoughts anyone?

20 pictures that will make you think! [I don’t normally like these ‘Lifehack’ type of posts but was sent this one twice this week, both times from two long-standing colleagues]

– Love any photo The Sartorialist takes but could these ones be any more sumptuous?!

– Loved this post – entitled 10 useful tips on how to survive being married to a blogger – from Lucy at Blonde, Write More! (a fellow NaNoWriMo-er). I don’t have a significant other but I laughed a lot at some of her points (we all manifest some of them some of the time! Bloggers are a funny but lovely bunch!).

– Loved, also, this blog post from Zoe – entitled Creative Momentum – an ode to the power of daily exercising of the creative muscle

– Always good to come upon reminders of how truly and amazingly beautiful our world is! Sorvagsvatn: a lake over the ocean!

– Last but not least, this beauty of a quote:

Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday and here’s to a great week! [The last one of January….just saying!]

    Thanks for sharing! Loved the “tree drawings”…they were amazing! Would not have thought of doing that!! Of course, I am not an artist (drawing, painting, etc.)…

    Have a Blessed Day!

  4. Love all of your ponderings of this & that. Especially fascinated by brain back-up article. However not sure if I think it’d be a positive or negative? There are many ways it’d be wonderful like for a child that loses a parent young and then it would be like they still get to know them. It would show true memories – not affected by the mistakes a person can make in sharing what they remember. But it talked about it being something others could interact with like it was that person. I would be concerned that in some ways it may be harder for a loved one to fully accept that person’s death & move on if they’re still pseudo interacting with them? Truly fascinating topic to think about.
    Thanks for delicious food for thought as always. Xoxo

      Hi Carrie…I found it really fascinating, too, but the implications are really quite complex…..ethically, legally….its a minefield….and, actually, I don’t think I’d like to view something so personal as someone else’s memories (however much I wish I could access any part of the memory of the people close to me who I’ve lost).
