Internet Inspiration – August 9, 2013

Awesome. Fonts reimagined as food.

Marc David discusses the brilliance of bitter.

Love this post on everyday heroism from Lissa Rankin. “We only discover we are heroes when we get disillusioned enough with the dysfunction of our present circumstances…. This spark within you is fueled by a pressing sense that there is adventure out there, that your life has purpose, that you’re on a quest you may not understand yet, that your small little existence on this very big planet could mean something, that there is more to life than the ordinary, dysfunctional world, and that perhaps all it takes is a cape and a mask and some really cool boots in order to save the world.”

I’m not sure I’d ever actually want to encounter any of these in real life, but there’s no denying that these spiders are magnificent.

Oh Alex. Helping us all out by coming up with a list of options “if all else fails…”

Thanks to Chris for posting about writing and speaking for introverts. I’ll agree that one of the most powerful ways I feel at ease in a new place (especially while traveling) is to remind myself that some mother chose to raise her child there, so it can’t be that dangerous. Trusting strangers is a big step, but a worthy one to take.

Disease is not a gift. “… make no mistake—-colitis was not the gift. I found the gift of my calling by doing the work of unpacking my experience. The gift came later.”

Silke is a f*cking powerhouse.

Awesome op-ed from Jewel on not fixing her teeth for fame.

Yes, please. I would like all of these mentors. And tack on Anne of Green Gables, Marc David, Gala Darling, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and JK Rowling.
