I'm still doing the house-full-of-visitors thing (and enjoying myself immensely, by the way). I expect to be mostly offline for several more days, at least. (You should try it sometime. Slow down and smell the roses, and all that jazz. :)
In the meantime, may I suggest:
Via A Circle of Quiet, here's a wonderful write-up on things Shakespeare - especially the art of introducing people to Shakespeare - over at Mental Multivitamin.
Over at Charis Connection, Angela Hunt discusses zipping the lip of your inner critic, and more. (This post has a nice Fred Rogers story. Yes, that Fred Rogers. He had to learn how to be a good neighbor, too, you know.)
And, of course, the Saturday Review of Books is up at Semicolon.
The Weak Anthropic Principle - I’m reading A Meaningful World, and chapter 6 deals with ‘A Cosmic Home: Designed for Discovery. It’s a fabulous book, but you do have to do some thinking ...
