I’m not feeling the writing groove so much this weekend, so I’m taking a different approach to this week’s Survey. It may be a keeper, or at least a recurring alternative version–it’s good to have options.
And now, it’s time for Show and Tell, 3 R’s Blog style!
These are the books–one ebook, one audiobook–I read this week, and will be drafting posts about after this post is done.
These are both paperbacks, and I’m hoping to read them at a better pace thanks to something I can’t show you–I’ve been wearing my new contact lenses since Friday, and the change in prescription has made a dramatic difference in how I see everything. I wish I could show you that. I’m still wearing nonprescription reading glasses over the contacts for reading–at my age, they just make it more comfortable–but I can read on my phone without them, and it’s been ages since I could do that!
This is the rain that made my Tuesday-morning drive to work take almost three hours (which is part of why I was able to start and finish It’s What I Do this week.)
- You know what I said earlier about not feeling the writing groove? I felt a little better reading April’s thoughts on creativity and seeing that I have company.
- But when I am feeling the groove, I’m inclined to ramble sometimes…because it’s my blog, and I can.
- I’m not feeling the blog-maintenance groove right now either…but I have, as usual, bookmarked the Fall Bloggiesta Mini-Challenges for future reference.
- And for something more serious, the Educational Link of the Week: More than a year out, America is firmly in Presidential Election Mode, and in a country formed on the principles of freedom of religion and separation of church and state, it’s important to grasp current perspectives on those principles:
“The American Religious landscape is a place most of us know little to nothing about, outside of the denomination in which we were raised. If you were raised in a Mainline Protestant or liberal-thinking Roman Catholic or Anglican tradition, you might think that keeping Church and State separate would be easy enough. However, you might be a bit out of step with the thinking of some of the fastest growing religious groups out there: the Evangelicals and Pentecostals.”
