Creativity Tweets of the Week — 9/30/11

Before we dive into a few of the best links I tweeted this week, let me thank Stan Stewart (@muz4now) for naming me a “One Lovely Blog” recipient. That was lovely of you, Stan! In order to accept it I have to do some homework, however; share seven random things about myself and name fifteen other good blogs. Hmm. As for the latter, I’d be hard-pressed to choose only fifteen. As for the former, there aren’t seven things worth sharing.

FYI, did you know that Mr. Bacon has a traveling jones? You’ve seen him on this site exploring central Virginia, the National Mall, and a presidential bill-signing ceremony. My blogger friend Melissa Crytzer Fry caught him exploring her ranch in Arizona. You can’t keep a good bacon strip down.

  1. Oh Patrick! Thank you so much for including a link to my essay and your kind words. *Blush.*

    About VCFA, believe me, the desire to share the love only increases. Such a wonderful, supportive community of writers. So glad to be among such talented folks, including you!

    Of course, how great is the Web? A global, barrier-less community of creativity-committed folks. You make such a important contribution to that community through your blog and Tweets. Thank you!

    Hi, Patrick–Thanks for sharing such great recommendations. I particularly enjoyed Sion’s piece; I’ve always been fascinated by the notion of “otherness”. It’s a theme that I used to encounter, interestingly enough, while working in one of my other hats–medical ethics. It is also one of the potential barriers that exist when practicing cross-cultural medicine. Oftentimes, acknowledging the “otherness” is the first step in forging a sense of “we-ness”.

    I also enjoyed checking out Sion’s “paris (im)perfect” blog. The photos are a particular treat. And it blows my mind that she commutes from Paris to Vermont for the VCFA MFA program!

    Two other things intrigued me: 1) the “Writer’s Rooms” series that Derek Flynn referenced in his essay, and 2) Mr. Bacon. Crazy, dude. Remind me to ask you more about him when next I see you.


    1. Hi Kathryn,

      I’m seeing this response late, but just wanted to thank you for your thoughts on my piece and for visiting my blog! Your experience practicing cross-cultural medicine sounds fascinating.

      As for commuting between Paris and Vermont, it was all worth it!

      Thanks again.
