Saturday Good Reads

On online friendship blooms into reality with wedding photos. A boy’s smile at a football game lifts hearts. A heart-tearing reflection on Labor Day. A poem about the Founding Fathers, and another poem about a blues band warming up. A close-up of what lavender looks like. And a recitation of the entire Gospel of Mark. All this and so much more – it was a creative week on the worldwide web.
