So, what's this, eh?
Today, I am going to list some links to good posts (get it?) that I've read in the past week or so.
In a sense, I hesitate to do this. How does one choose? Will this offend those who don't make the short list? But this past week, of all weeks, it would have been easy for you to miss these. We're all getting busier than usual, and Blogger has been having its hiccoughs (or hiccups).
Well, I trust that no one will be offended if their wonderful post was omiited because it's not necessarily best posts, just good posts — posts that I might have happened to pay more attention to than others, perhaps simply because I was more alert or less harried at that juncture than at other times. And it doesn't mean that tons of other posts weren't good. In fact, there are others that I noted this week, but, in the end, you have to choose because you simply can't make these lists too very long.
Why call it Poignant Posts? Simply because I wanted to be alliterative. Poignant can mean the following: (i) profoundly moving; touching; (ii) neat, skillful, and to the point; (iii) astute and pertinent; and, (iv) agreeably intense or stimulating. The word also has other shades of meaning, but these are the appropriate definitions.
I have put a "(Vol. 1)" after the title, just in case I decide to make this a regular feature. Not sure that I will, but I may as well be prepared.
Here we go, without comment: just a list.
- "There ain't nothing like the real thing, Baby" from Forward Ho
- "Christmas without Ava" from Untangling Knots
- "Thoughts About My Future" from Wondering!
- "Homophobia on Train 494" from Mimico Musings
- "Hotspots" by maison madcap
- "Angels and Shining Stars" by Brown Betty Brew
Well, I strove to limit the list to five from a starting point of eleven and was eventually able to pare it to six.
Is this sort of thing of any use to anybody? Is it something to continue doing from time to time, or is it simply a waste of bandwidth and your/my time?
