Much of the country is in a deep freeze, the Northeast included. Bundle up! And take a few moments to relax with favorite finds from my Twitter feed this week. Some hot chocolate would be perfect right about now! Enjoy!
@WritersNetGuide “It’s the job never started that takes the longest to finish.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
@reedtome Carl Sagan on books.
[SEO: A brilliant mind, on just about any subject.]
@LillyAnn “Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.” Lao Tzu
@in_focus Chicago’s Freezing Fire — 16 photos of the ice-encrusted aftermath of Tuesday’s warehouse fire
[SEO: A huge fire in subzero Chicago turns an abandoned warehouse, and everything in its vicinity, into a giant ice castle. That’s not thawing out any time soon!]
@pourmecoffee “I want to confess on TV in big fancy soft chair so bad but all I’ve got to offer is lurid tales of serial Starbucks Splenda-stealing.”
@pourmecoffee “When did you know you had a problem?” “When I slipped two Raw Sugar packets in my pocket, which I don’t even like — no one does (tears).”
@johncusack ‘Squatter’ builds incredible treehouse hidden in forest
[SEO: This guy spent years creating an awesome egg-shaped treehouse on Crown land in Canada’s Whistler’s forest. It’s way off the beaten path, and he had to hike in materials he scrounged from trash and Craig’s List. Pictures and video show how the project progressed over the years. And now? What to do with it!]
@WritersNetGuide “The ability to read awoke inside me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive.” ~ Malcolm X
@SarahMcLachlan LOL!! Great time @VanCanucks game … thanks everyone for the warm welcome!!!
[SEO: Sarah sang the US and Canadian Anthems for the first game of this very short hockey season, and was caught getting a love bite from the Canucks mascot. (FYI, she’s a huge hockey fan, and the Canucks are her home team.)]
@pourmecoffee “Constitution is explicit: ‘Well-regulated voice being necessary, right of Beyonce to record and play back anthem shall not be abridged.'”
@petapixel An aurora borealis time-lapse proposal
[SEO: “A time-lapse of the aurora borealis captured from several different locations throughout Iceland would be a good enough way to start off your Saturday, but MIT neuroscientist Alex Rivest’s time-lapse from a few months ago takes it one step further.” I’ve just added seeing Northern lights somewhere to my bucket list.]
@Alyssa_Milano “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
