Today’s assignment: write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday. Don’t forget to link to the other blog
“Because citizen discourse is powerful.” is the tagline for one of my new favorite sites known as Our Weapon of Choice. The About page expresses so succinctly Ryan’s goal to have intelligent in depth discussions on issues that have so many of us globally concerned, whether it is the educating of our children, our failing infrastructures or climate change. Not in a heavy pessimism either. True informative discourse.
Yesterday I read a post that woke up long sleeping memories of playing Chinese checkers in my Grandmother’ s farm kitchen while eating her molasses cakes and her ritual of serving very hot English tea made with a tea-ball steeping in a fancy flowered teapot, with delicate cups and saucers to match. My sense of smell, taste, and of feeling loved all settled in as I read this post on culture’s food rituals and how important they are to family, community. I encourage you to treat yourself to a pleasant memory and go read Food As Culture, As Memory, As Memento. Our Weapon of Choice is a must explore site, then hit the follow button and join the conversations there. Many ways to get inspired here.
I’m inspired to go bake some of my Grandma’s cookies.
