Totally Addicted....

I am completely and utterly addicted to this thing called the blog. If you are reading this, you may be able to sympathize. Now, instead of checking my e-mail incessantly, I check my Blogger dashboard to see what all of you are writing out there. I'll compare it to a sugar craving (it's something I can understand because I have never done drugs). You get that itch that you need to satisfy. But once you succumb and indulge, all you want is more, more, more. I guess that is a testament to all of you! You must be writing some juicy stuff. Or perhaps, it's not so juicy, but it's just the sweet stuff of life that we all can relate too. It's a small way of feeling a part of something--a part of this world.

On a different note, I came across this website on a blog I follow, Poketo. Ted is a library of videos of speeches and presentations from brilliant people. There is a lot of good stuff here, but this particular one caught my eye today.

I found it to be enlightening and not all about doom and gloom. It's more of a history lesson. I do wish he would have had more time to talk a little more about solutions though. This ending was a little disappointing. Also, please try to get past the comb-over. :)

And Sweva and Granny J- I see a lot of connections to the Panarchy theory and possibly the Christaller Theorum. I swear, Sweva, one day soon I will get back to you on that.


  1. Toad-tally addicted are you?

    Welcome back; your Audobon Society meet looked fun.

    Ted is good. I don't get there often enough.

  2. There is a big problem with TED as with YouTube -- video and audio are in real time. I can read faster & so prefer a site like Arts & Letters Daily which offers a fine stew of thoughtful articles. As for the addicting nature of the blog -- join the club!

  3. Lucy- Love the pun! Why didn't I think of that? Thanks for the welcome back...The Audubon Society does great work.

    TED does seem long as I don't become too distracted from my thesis.

    Granny J- Yeah, YouTube can be equally addicting, maybe even more so. I'll have to check out your recommendation. I'm always up for a good, thought provoking read.
