Links of the Week

A number of the links this week are about the school shooting that occurred last Friday. Here are a few of the responses that really struck me.

Connecticut at Susan Piver‘s blog
A beautiful look at sitting with one’s emotions during tragedy.

What matters most? And when do we need to take a break?

What Do You Do When The Thing You Want Doesn’t Exist from It Starts With
Always a good motivator to create (though so very scary sometimes).

What happens when we look at things through a mirror? How do we begin to see our world?

Obligatory Photo of the Author Reading Her New Book by M. Fenn
M. Fenn’s new book dropped this week and I cannot tell you how excited I am to read it during my trip next month! I know her story is pretty amazing and the others sound really fantastic. Alternate histories await!

Weekend Prompting
