This is a list of some of my favorite online blogs and reading sites.

Brain Pickings is at the top of my list.

It is an amazing site, thoroughly researched and written. Love this site:

Brain Pickings is my one-woman labor of love — a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why. Mostly, it’s a record of my own becoming as a person — intellectually, creatively, spiritually — and an inquiry into how to live and what it means to lead a good life.

Founded in 2006 as a weekly email that went out to seven friends and eventually brought online, the site was included in the Library of Congress permanent web archive in 2012.

The Guardian

I find so many great articles in The Guardian. This is just one:

‘My brain feels like it’s been punched’: the intolerable rise of perfectionism

The Elephant Journal

Lots of great writing here, like this about a favorite, Anne Lamott:

12 Truths Anne Lamott Learned from Life & Writing.

Andrea Balt. I recently found her site.

7 Steps to Think like Leonardo da Vinci: The Guide to Everyday Genius.

Pro Publica

This is an investigative piece I have been riveted to recently. Excellent read that will make you really think about the legal system.

Joe Bryan has spent the past three decades in prison for the murder of his wife, a crime he claims he didn’t commit.

His conviction rested largely on “bloodstain-pattern analysis” — a technique still in use throughout the criminal-justice system, despite concerns about its reliability.

Should this type of forensic science remain in the courtroom?
