Internet Inspiration – April 24, 2015

4.24.2015

I remember learning about synesthesia in high school and thinking, “I want it.” Check out this artist who painted songs she saw.

Did I link to this before? I hope so. How to DIY an awesome writer’s retreat. I’m thinking this needs to be a quarterly thing for me.

Your brain on orgasms. My favorite thing about this article is that it acknowledges that there are many different kinds of orgasms; not just clitoral.

There’s an awesome social media push for #LoveYourLines, and I’m into it.

An important reminder about the limits of your jurisdiction.

Your outrage is understandable and appropriate; it’s just not helpful.

There is a time and place for skepticism like yours: When you’re the one deciding whether to marry/reconcile/procreate with someone, or you’ve been asked to advise the person who is.

24 fiction books that can change your life. I haven’t read many of these, but those that I have are solid recommendations. Actually, now that I’m reviewing the list again, I only see one book by a woman on this list, and I don’t think any from people of color. So these books might change your life, but there are more authors to explore. Here are 100 books by black women everyone should read and 41 awesome female authors. These are the convenient lists I have, but there’s a big world of authors out there, so if you have recommendations from demographics I haven’t highlighted here (A Fine Balance, Cutting for Stone, Americanah, Wild Swans, etc), do share. I’d love to take a literature trip around the world!

And I read this op-ed on Earth Day. It includes a list of counter-intuitive recommendations to save the planet, which mostly include concentrating humans in cities and leaving nature alone. Interesting thoughts to say the least.

Lastly, I know it’s an ad and it’s designed to manipulate me, but I felt things watching these blindfolded kids pick their moms out of a crowd.
