Hope you are all having a great weekend.

I thought I'd post a few articles read this week that moved me greatly and gave me a compelling insight into other people's lives.

Footage of Ingrid Betancourt's rescue
Ian McEwan on the brother he never knew he had
I'm obsessed with the number twelve
How to talk to someone with autism

I should have gone to bed an hour ago but had to read these and I'm glad I did.

Sleep - who needs it:)

TLC said...

Wow, those woke me up. Amazing footage. How incredible that they were able to infiltrate and rescue those captives like they did.

I was fascinated too by Ian McEwan's piece, peoples lives really are so interesting.

The article on Autism was excellent, too, I really enjoyed that.

Fiona, sleep is overrated!

TLC, it was very helpful, thank you for writing it. It really humbled me and reminded me to be more tolerant.

Holler, hope you had a great weekend too!

Debs, the footage is amazing isn't it? It's so powerful.

Hullaballoo you're welcome.
