Friday finds (gems I found around the Internet) #FF

Words are so powerful. Sometimes it doesn’t take very many words to make a huge impact. Never was that so evident as in this short, short story by James McEwan:

“Let the stars decide”

Or, in this (very) short poem called

Peaceful Silence

If you’ve lost faith in humanity, it will be restored instantly by reading these tweets:

Pinpricks of light amid the darkness

Here is just one example:


Were you a big fan of Jamie Dornan in “The Fall“?  I was. I’m excited to learn that he will be starring in an Irish period drama “Death and Nightingales“. The revenge drama also stars another of my favourite actors, Matthew Rhys. I only hope it will be available in Canada at some point… Watch the YouTube trailer.

  1. What a fun post! CG Drews is one of my favorite Tweeter’s (Twitterers? Tweeps???). So witty and always about the books and/or writing books. Twitter intrigues and terrifies me, so I love people who seem to have an innate talent for it.

    These all cheered me up, but “Love the Liberry” made me laugh out loud. I am totally going to share this with my Research Writing class. I just took them on a trip to two college libraries to find sources.

  6. I really liked the tweet about the grandmother and the dog. It indeed restored my faith in goodness. I am a big fan of Jamie Dornan. I appreciated his role in “The Fall”. Looking forward to seeing him more on screen.
