First time here? Welcome! So, most weeks, I post this lil “Links of the Week” post on articles or other things I find online that I am absolutely compelled to share!! Hope you find something here that moves you in some way, even if it’s just to a smile.
As my friend Jody said, here’s a good reason why every business needs a mythologist on staff: 7 Horrifying Historical Origins of Famous Corporate Logos
The week’s cutest news: Tiniest Chameleon, Brookesia Micra, Discovered On Madagascar Island

So, I usually share links because they’re awesome. This week, I have something to share that I’m not supportive of! While browsing my campus bookstore, I saw this darling notebook with a cover that said “Choose to be Green.” I thought it was awesome! But then I noticed something… there was no recycle symbol anywhere. Though the product was promoting green, it wasn’t green! Therefore, I’m sharing this Choosey Chicks links to encourage you not to buy any of their products. They promote some positive ideas – choose peace, choose change, choose strength – but they are only out for profit. As far as I can see, they aren’t attempting to make any changes, at least not for the environment.
But, I’d like to end on a happy note, so I recommend you go here to learn more about Peace Sounds, a beautiful album that will soothe you and provide a donation to Thich Nhat Hanh’s current tour.
