Things That Make Me Go Hmmm and Sunday Selections


cell phones, GPS, zucchini, red pandas, Malcolm Gladwell, nationalism, globalization, Greece, people who think they can drive but don’t know how to merge

Sunday Selections

The Idea of Europe – George Steiner a short 60 page essay that everyone should read and think about. My big idea that came from my reading ” Europe committed suicide the day it formed the European Union”. and a great line of Steiner’s in discussion of liberal education ” when God talks to himself, he sings in algebra.”

The Red Tent – Anita Diamant still one of my favorite books of all time. It would definitely be in my sacred bundle of 5 books that I would take with me if I could only have 5 to read for the rest of my life. Opens an amazing conversation about tradition, values and inter-generational transfer of knowledge.
