Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca(Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. The theme this week is "bright."
Some things I thought were worth sharing this morning. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
1. Why we loved Gilbert Blythe. Your fans are in the "depths of despair." RIP Jonathan Crombie. 2. In her Grammy acceptance letter, Annie Clark gets real with her fans about what it took to become St Vincent. A refreshingly honest account of getting started in the music biz. 3. On what food porn does to the brain. What's the psychological appeal? 4. And now that the food porn link above has your attention, here are 5 amazing vegetarian main-dish salad recipes for summer. Yummy! 5. Quote: "Media voices, politicians and others that create panic for a living need to own responsibility for the way their actions dramatically magnify the cost we all pay." ~ Seth Godin.
The weather has turned
warm again, at last. We’ve thrown open the windows and can once more hear the
excited cries of children at play. The mere sound of them takes me back to a
time when great happiness could be found by exploring the woods, precious
treasures found just by turning over a large rock or rotting log, music heard
when sitting next to a swiftly running creek. We tend to lose that sense of wonder
as we get older but maybe we should be making a little time each week to
rediscover our own inner child. It just might make all the difference.

The theme this week is "hunger" and comes from Kelleyn (US). I think that Django has an internal body-clock. Twice a day he'll herd us over to his food bowl and quietly sit at attention until he's fed. Good boy!

“As a songwriter, it’s just a wonderful thing when a song leaves your hands and
you get to see what can happen to it — the way it gets used by people. When an
artist tells you that they used your song to paint with or someone says they
got through a painful period thanks to one of your songs, it pays you back. I
happen to think that one creative act creates other creative acts. You drop a
pebble in the well and it’s quite astonishing what happens to those ripples.
They go out and sometimes they come back to you.”
2. 19 great photos of "women's work" 100 years ago.
3. Quote: "Those who choose not to empathize enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it, through our own apathy." ~JK Rowling Read more of her words of wisdom and life advice here.
4. From 1953 to 1960, the wonderful Edward Gorey oversaw the creation of paperback book covers for Doubleday Anchor books.
5. Margaret Wise Brown wrote under 3 noms-de-plume and in just 10 years published 53 books. Ironically, the miniature volume, Little Fur Family, was originally bound in rabbit fur. Yikes! Step back in time and read this1946 Life Magazine article about this quirky author. (the point-in-time article is a hoot and unlikely to be written this way now). While you're at it, enjoy a peek at the entire issue. You're sure to be entertained.
Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca(Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. The theme this week is "in bloom" and comes from me (USA)! I choose the theme of "in bloom" for this month because I thought it would be fun to see what's blooming around the world and in the yards of all the corner view participants. Here in my area, it's all about daffodils, forsythia, and the fruit trees. Apple, cherry, plum, peach, pear...they're dressed in all their glory and it's simply beautiful.
