5 favorites: good finds online + Natalie's handsome nurse

Before sharing the list, a favorite image from the week:

My daughter was hit by a car one week ago today.  We are grateful beyond words that her injuries (a severe knee sprain) are not worse -- even though we don't yet know their full extent.  One of the many silver linings in the aftermath was the -- umm -- very attractive nurse who took care of her in the ER.  Hopefully this photo gives you enough of an idea while still protecting his identity.  Also, he may or may not have actually wiped tears from Natalie's face at one point.  This part of the story has allowed us to give Natalie quite a bit of teasing.

Five Favorites: good finds online

Phaedra's New Liturgical Art Commission at Diary of an Arts Pastor: "In a sense, I have begun to think of our whole lives as a kind of long Lent before a new and brilliant Easter, that day when Jesus returns as King. In this time in-between, you and I are invited to see our lives as perhaps brightly sad, rather than endlessly happy. Here in the regular course of our often not-exciting lives, we hold our hearts out to the Spirit, who knows all things, including the depths of our hearts, and we take halting steps towards the day when Jesus shall make all things new, despite our unclear paths and hearts that frequently grow faint."

On Craftsmanship: The Only Surviving Recording of Virginia Woolf's Voice, 1937 at Brainpickings: "They hang together, in sentences, in paragraphs, sometimes for whole pages at a time. They hate being useful; they hate making money; they hate being lectured about in public. In short, they hate anything that stamps them with one meaning or confines them to one attitude, for it is their nature to change."

More than half the world's population lives inside this circle at We Come From the Future:  "What's truly noteworthy about this visualization is how clearly and effectively it conveys an astonishing truth about the world." And that most of the land inside the focal point is actually not land, but water.

Grass, Water, Cows from The Perennial Plate on Vimeo: "In Argentina, beef is a way of life. But over the last few decades, the traditional methods of raising cows on grass has faded away, only to be replaced by the feedlot model. At Las dos Hermanas Ranch, they maintain the old ways of managing the grass, the water and the cows. "
