Slow news day. So I only have a few small items to offer. The first is about funeral offerings in China. (from Janet). The other is a new pop song (just audio, no video) about time passing I really like from a group called The Bravery, and a video from an old favorite about fathers. Oh, and this too in case you missed it elsewhere (like on BB). A strange combo, true. Wednesdays are like that.
UDATE: Oh, and here’s an interesting family ritual that almost ties all this abstract stuff together! (Except that story on the Chinese. I’m not sure I could tie that into anything else even if I tried.) It reminds me of something sweet my friend John does every month. (Link courtesy of Crooked Timber and cartania.com of course).
