Weekend Links

“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline.”
― Ayn Rand

Hi ducklings! Apologies for the lateness of the post but I’ve spent half a week in NYC on my first proper holiday of the year and only just got back. More updates to follow but in the meantime, jetlag!

At least once a year RadioWest does an entire radio hour dedicated to best in books (picked by SLC resident experts) and it’s one of my favorite shows. It’s also made my GoodReads list spiral out of control, but such is life! Here’s this year’s summer episode.

The higher hair

Golly, it’s a minefield out here.


An interesting personal piece on prayer for Ramadan.

A better investment than gold?

Anyone interested in a bit of nerd property shopping?

Or how about some medieval graffiti, always good for SDS clickbait!

I have a lot of thoughts on the Brexit vote, and am unsure whether or not to turn that into a blog post. In the meantime

Almost plausible, and frightening as a result.

So saddened to hear about the passing of this man.

Since it was Pride in NYC this weekend, this celebration of one year of marriage equality is perfectly apt. Work still to be done, but much to take stock of.

  1. I debated whether or not to write a Brexit blog post too. I usually avoid wading into politics on my blog. But my feelings on this issue are too strong to be ignored, so I ended up writing one.

    Glad you had a good time in NYC. I look forward to hearing about it. 🙂

    1. Loved your post, by the way.

      I’ve been having a bit of a writer’s crisis of late as work has taken over my life and I struggle to carve out time to blog or pursue my creative projects. But things like the Brexit or the election might pull me out of my slump. I don’t often go full tilt political but as has been said, the personal is political and I’m feeling the need to write more about it.

      Alas that there are not nearly enough hours in the day…

      1. Thank you! Glad to hear you liked it.

        I hear you — there are times in life when busyness takes over. I’ve experienced blogging slumps before: times when I want to write, but simply haven’t had the time and/or energy to do so.

        I’d certainly be interested in reading your views on Brexit. I hope you find more hours in the day soon.
