happy bread year

There are always new wonders to discover.

Amazing and surprisingly moving.
Roger Ebert writes about this here.
Jamie Stuart's website is here.

We were out of town for the storm. Tried to get back ahead of it but were forced to turn around. Our second, successful, trip took 18 hours (but allowed for a movie and dinner out - ideal way to wait out congestion and become unstuck).

Some of the stuff that accumulates in my head (and out onto my desk) while I am at work.

a cloud

Maybe found a way to track what I come across in the course of a day/week/month/year...(I got the 'players' form from David Hughes).

The rest of the page.

And the quote that I have dwelt on most this week (with a bonus quote and Kanye drawing):

That quote in full (which I got from a book that I have Andrew to thank for):

“If you tell me Christian commitment is a kind of thing that has happened to you once and for all like some kind of spiritual plastic surgery, I say go to, go to, you’re either pulling the wool over your own eyes or trying to pull it over mine. Every morning you should wake up in your bed and ask yourself: “Can I believe it all again today?” No, better still, don’t ask it till after you’ve read The New York Times, till after you’ve studied that daily record of the world’s brokenness and corruption, which should always stand side by side with your Bible. Then ask yourself if you can believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ again for that particular day. If your answer’s always Yes, then you probably don’t know what believing means. At least five times out of ten the answer should be No because the No is as important as the Yes, maybe more so. The No is what proves you’re human in case you should ever doubt it. And then if some morning the answer happens to be really Yes, it should be a Yes that’s choked with confession and tears and …great laughter.” [Frederick Buechner, The Return of Ansel Gibbs, 303]

blackout wisdom

Austin Kleon is a wise man. His book is definitely worth looking at - I love it.
