Things On My Mind: A Roundup
As I've mentioned before, I'm a huge fan of the roundup post. Hopefully this collection of links has something interesting for everyone.
The bike above and the bench below? Nothing to do with the post really. I just like them.
Or maybe the bike symbolizes the metaphoric ride that we're taking together. And the bench is a pause on the ride. To catch our breath and then continue on our journey.
This post is a marathon. I applaud those of you who get through it, reading the links, in one sitting. Here we go!
