I’ve mentioned before how I used to work at a cemetery. This week’s PTP includes visual proof.
Yes, I’ve heard all the jokes about having a lot of people under my feet when I worked there. And yes, that place was dead Now onto this week’s picks!
I’m a little behind on this one, but Ellie Ann Battles The Virtue was just another strong effort from one of my favorite internet peoples in the universe.
Did you hear this amazing story of a lost class ring. Jesse Taylor Mattos lost his ring before World War II! It’s worth waiting through the short commercial on this ABC video to hear his short story.
I’d also like you to meet Laura Bond who blogs at Red Lips and Academics about “the (bumpy) transition from student to teacher.” This week she has some great observations about what it’s like when life is suddenly up to you. As in, no more syllabus or outline to follow. Gen Y will especially appreciate this look at the challenges of making your own way.
Also this week, a fitting post that also comes from a cemetery visit. Tom Bentley wrote Memories: The Long Arm of the Writer, and I really enjoyed this one.
Finally, a fascinating post even if I am many months late. This story is amazing! James Chartrand is a woman. No, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know who that is before you link over. Just read and you’ll see. Kind of makes me wonder if all you men are really men or all you women are really women. I’m definitely really a man though. Unless the videos are somehow faked.
Wow, looking back over this week’s picks makes me feel that this is one of the strongest batches ever! Dig in.
I’m always looking for more great pics from you!
I’d love to hear any feedback you have on one or more of this week’s picks.
Don’t forget School Photo Day! All you have to do is put a picture on your site with as little/many words as you like. Then tell us about it in the comment section.
