Thanks for the mention, Glynn. I think you know all about that feeling— the tilting compass—yes?

Oh! and thanks for highlighting Sara's princess-pea. What a gift. :)

Jennifer @ GettingDownWithJesus.com said...

Thank you, Glynn, for including my piece in the roundup here. What a list this is!

I think Nancy's plate photo is just right for those of us who want to feast on these words.

Mama Zen said...

Thanks for the list! This should keep me busy.

Louise Gallagher said...

Thank you my friend! I am honoured and humbled. and eager to check out the rest of your list that I haven't already visited!

a town named after me?
rosberg...hum
nice.
but,
i kind of like
the sound of nanceville

hehehe :-)

thanks for using
the plate stack photo.
the paper on top the plates are
little bags that the folks at a
fabric store in McMinnville use.
i think they are so pretty, i just can't
bring myself to throw them away.
i think i will use them to make envelopes
for letters.
i use to do that in high school. make envelopes
for mailing letters. i would use pages with cool photos from my mom's magazines.

I told myself I could spare an hour for my RSS feed. Nearly two hours later, I've made it little farther than the links in this post. How enriched I've been by your quality compilation, Glynn. Thank you.

Maureen said...

Thank you for the mentions, Glynn.

Isn't Sara's graphic novel "The Princess and the Pea" wonderful?

H. Gillham said...

This blog is always a place to find worthy reading...

Good stuff -- and the adding of the podcast -- great idea -- I used to love Wallace Stevens -- hearing that made me miss teaching, but only for a second before I slapped myself up the side of the head...

but Keats -- *sigh*

Muah, Glynn, muah.

S. Etole said...

Always good things to find here.

Sandra Heska King said...

Thanks so much, Glynn. Thanks for the mentions again this week. I'm honored to be included in this cloud of witnesses. You rock!
