The Internet is a great big time-suck but it also contains magic. Various events have meant that I’ve spent a lot of time online this week and I’ve read a number of things that I love and thought I’d share in case anyone else is interested.
- I love this article about the choice nobody is talking about. I didn’t actively make this particular choice, it’s just the way my life worked out and I’m okay with that. Having no children has given me freedom but I do love kids. Which is why I try my hardest to be a fabulous aunt. I don’t get the kids question, instead the helpful advice I get from some people who love me (but clearly don’t know me at all) is that I need a boyfriend. Need? Boyfriend? Really?
- It’s nice to have the reassurance that all the walking I do is good for me. A good walk really does solve a lot of problems.
- This fascinating article came when I was having similar thoughts. I was sat on a plane last week considering how amazing it was that I was flying thousands of feet up in a metal tube and how lucky I am to be able travel wherever I want. Sometimes we should just pause and realize how amazing the world is.
- I shed many tears over the events in Orlando at the weekend but some beautiful articles have come out of it. I especially appreciated My Rainbow Connection, Biphobia and the Pulse Massacre and All we can do is be kind.
- A friend suggested a blog she’d thought I like. She was right. How to travel when not travelling is a great article.
- I also came across this amazing open letter from Joe Biden to the Stanford rape survivor.
- And, finally this is a great counterpoint to all those articles which annoy the hell out of me – 24 things women over 30 should wear.
Thanks to Tammy Strobel of Rowdy Kittens for pushing me gently in the direction of some of these articles and, of course, to the entire Twitterverse for bringing far too many things to my attention!
