Shawn Smucker, who’s currently traveling with his family across the United States in an RV (big bus), had not one but three wonderful posts this week, including one about the value of a father that brought tears. (And then he had a guest poster, Tamara Lunardo, who did the same thing.) there were some wonderful poems by Maureen Doallas, John Blasé and Chris Yokel, photographs that inspired fiction for Darlene, several photos that effectively captured fog, and a new video by the Piano Guys that will sound familiar if you’re an Elvis fan (and saw the movie Blue Hawaii). It’s was a great week for online stuff.
