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

 

1. Via The Happiness Project, check out City of Words DC, which tracks quotations around Washington, DC.

2. Who knew? Monopoly was once a socialist utopia. Shhhh….don’t tell.

3. Over at A Design So Vast, Lindsey encourages us to embrace the darkness of winter. This is my new mantra. For everything.

4. If you happen to be a Prince fan, watch this entire clip. If not, speed ahead to the last 3-4 minutes and watch how the artist turns the table on the interviewer and – in the most natural way possible – utterly disarms her. (Hat tip: My husband)

5. This poignant post over at Big Little Wolf’s Daily Plate of Crazy about a letter from a love gone by really struck a chord.

6. Finally, where would any of us be without The Oatmeal? Here the comic genius muses about what it’s like to be a creative of any sort: writer/blogger/artist/you name it. Love, love, love.

 

Have a great weekend!

    Always delighted to be one of your Friday pix, Delia. Thank you! And I must add – a writer sent me that Oatmeal piece yesterday on Facebook, and I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Looking forward to checking out the other picks, and have a wonderful weekend.

    I just read about the Hungarian version of Monopoly under communism…
