Weekly News

Happy Spring! This Wednesday is perfectly timed to the Spring Equinox this year. Sun–we’re going to start getting more sun every day. Longer days and a rapid slide toward summer. Yay!

A video about different ways to tie your shoes went viral. Watch it and you’ll understand why.


The last Blockbuster store is hanging on in a little time-defying bubble in Oregon. Now I want to visit. It sounds like it’s exactly how I remember the store and my youth. Sigh.


Science has a new explanation for time flying as we age–physics. Specifically, the speed at which we process visual information makes us think time slows down because we do. It’s amazing how much of our understanding of the world truly results from aspects of our specific human perceptions. Understanding the mind is just another reason I heart science.


That’s all for tonight. See you back here in seven.

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

  1. Hi Kim! I heard an interview on the radio with the owner/manager of that Blockbuster, he’s been in England on a bit of a tour, I believe 🙂

  2. I’m from Oregon and Bend is a bit backwater anyway. It doesn’t surprise me that the one store still survives there.

  3. You mean there really is a reason why time speeds now while it drug when I was a kid?
    I’ve heard about that Blockbuster store. Really wild.
    Spring is cold and wet here right now…
