This is a writing kind of day. I’ve got a blog post to write, plus a couple of magazine articles, plus a couple of assignments for a course I’m taking. Plus a few other things. Caffeine will be my near-constant companion.

Remembering Linsi – A great read: “On 9 February 2011 Dr Robert Stanley Lindsay went to be with the Lord, aged 83. Dr Steve Lee, who served at Kapsowar Hospital, looks back at Dr Lindsay’s service with AIM and the lasting impact of his work.”

@ True Woman – I was recently interviewed by Paula Hendricks of True Woman on issues related to technology, and specifically as they pertain to women.

Will Heaven Be Intolerable? – “Christopher Hitchens is battling stage 4 cancer of the oesophagus. ‘And the thing to note about stage 4,’ he observes dryly in a recent interview, ‘is that there is no stage 5.’ As a passionate atheist, he doesn’t believe in an afterlife. Which makes the prospect of death all the more frightening to him:”

Turco – I’m not much of a hockey fan, but I enjoyed this story.

The Ivey Family – A new short film from Deidox.

He is much happier that is always content, though he has ever so little, than he that is always coveting, though he has ever so much.

—Matthew Henry

Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

  • The Way You Walk

    The Way You Walk

    You can tell a lot about people by the way they walk, can’t you? You can tell a lot about their physical health, their emotional state, and perhaps even their spiritual condition.
