A few "quick takes" for the day:
Remember the "Oregon Trail" game from elementary school computer labs in the 1980's? You can play it here. (I haven't yet, but plan to when I have a life again... hmm, maybe somebody should let me know how it is.)
I re-discovered Abraham Piper's blog the other day, 22 Words. I love how he deliberately cultivates brevity, and he has great insights. It's now on my feedreader.
Another blog that disappeared from my feedreader when I switched computers and I just rediscovered is that of David Baer, president of Overseas Council. Today's post is a good example of why I'm excited to make him a regular read again -- Suffering's Beautiful children.
And thanks to Tara for two great posts in the last few days -- "Gutsy Guilt" and "Look down and then up."
Okay, enjoy some U2 for the day:
