Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I’ll listen to author Anne Lamott talk about anything. Here’s an interview with her at the New York Times Motherlode blog where, among other things, she discusses her views on adulthood. Bliss.

2. Simon Doonan’s random meditation on why we really get tattoos over on Slate is hilarious.

3. Here’s a gorgeous graphic comparison of New York and Paris at The Guardian.

4. I really can’t say for sure why I was mesmerized by the Children Medieval Band performing a song about overdosing on drugs, other than my no longer latent obsession with Game of Thrones. Check out that drummer – wow!

5. Strangling My Muse had some terrific suggestions for how to mark World Creativity and Innovation week. I’m personally a big fan of the community story idea.

6. Via The Huffington Post’s Lisa Belkin, I’ve just discovered The Bloggess. Boy, does she look like fun…

Have a great weekend!

    I liked the tattoo article. My needle pain lately is from acupuncture and I wouldn’t have agreed with what the journalist said before I started this recently, but I REALLY look forward to those pokes… You really do “feel something.” Exhilaration? Maybe, in miniature.

      Ha! Yes, I’ve done acupuncture as well, Mollie and I know exactly what you mean! Thanks for dropping by!

    Hi Delia

    I’ve been following your blog for a couple of years now, and I love it!

    I’ve recently set up my own site and am planning on doing a weekly blog post in the style of your Friday recommended reading – I’ll credit you fulsomely with the idea, and link to you. It will be in-the-style-of only, not copying your links – I’m not a rip-off merchant.

    Just thought I’d let you know, in the spirit of blogger courtesy :-)

    Eleanor
