Good good links #185

Confession: I was super late in assembling today’s post. With family around and my mind pondering many things lately, I’ve been neglecting the blog and blog world as a whole lately. Sorry for just disappearing at times. I’m not going to give up blogging, only need some time to figure things out here and there. Ah well, no more vague-rambling but some great posts for your reading pleasure. As always feel free to drop links to posts that made you think or feel inspired lately in the comments.

Happy reading!
