One of my favorite aspects of blogging is generating thoughtful discussion, and I earnestly attempt to respond to most comments. Thanks to my recent post being Freshly Pressed, I haven’t been able to respond to the flood of comments about exploring busyness. Ironic, no?:) I’ll start chipping away soon.
Now that the ‘Stew readership has increased, I’m hoping to revive some posts from months ago. Please comment and share!
1. In this post about digital communication, I wonder about teenagers’ interpersonal skill, gadgets, and whether or not what it means to be human–within the realm of communication–is changing for better or worse.
2. Our relationships with pets and other animals, coupled with increased meat consumption, is problematic. Since I published this post, I’ve had to kill one of my hens due to an infection. It wasn’t enjoyable, but it had to be done.
4. What is meaningful work? Is there value in working with our hands? What is the problem with so much of our lives being filled by passive consumption?
5. There are many overlooked places between the East and West Coasts of the United States. Do you live in a “flyover state?” Would you? Why or why not? For many well-educated Americans, places like Kentucky are more foreign than China.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all you bloggers!
