5 excellent blogs for personnal growth

best read together:
(1) Ktismatics

(2) Serendip



(4) Jason Hesiak

(5) Samcarr's blog

(6) Chez Odile

What do you say? It does not add up? Well I'm just copying normal human behaviour, that is not logical at all. In fact hardly ever do human beings have thoughts that are consistent with each other. That's why I like to read these blogs to find some consistency in this atopia. (find out in which blog atopia is described)

Puzzle sunday (16)

A relaxing permutation puzzle keeps nerves in a sound state. And now for a real challenge, puzzles of geometry, but in spanish. And if you like touchable puzzles, here a DNA puzzle, on a fun to be site about DNA.

house image

My house is different than other houses in this village and would it have been in the middle of a city instead of in a peasant village, it would have been very easy to sell. The house has the double of space that a regular house has in the Netherlands, a garden at three sides and a basement. It has a history that goes back nearly hundred years and schoolheadmasters lived in it. We did improve a number of items in and around the house, e.g. a solar pannel for water heating, an extra room in the attick.
So how can I convince the town people that they should buy our house? I guess our house has a image problem. How to fix the image problem of a house?
Anyone?

city or village; culture, easy suburb or nature

Instead of choosing between city or village, I added an element: easy suburb or nature. So now we have three choices. My way of handling this is keeping options open that are satisfactory enough and then, with more or less intuitive parameters that are more or less negociable decide at the moment that everything seems to come together: our house sold, a date in our head, morgage and unforseen. So it comes down to nature or nurture?

Puzzle Sunday (15)

A student I was when my fellow student sighed that everything has been invented; nothing new to discover. How different my attitude towards life...
Even if others have thought a thought before me, it makes me feel less lonely and I can wonder how my thought might be slightly different. I often have ideas or questions that I cannot find anywhere.
and now for a puzzle. I'm late for puzzle sunday having painted the kitchen. I'm not sure this is the kind of puzzle you were looking for, it is a group puzzle, maybe something for a group-holliday.

A lesson in google

A lesson in google.
(1) I typed: Life and learning finding words for what we feel
(2) I found: teenages, war casualty, art

Art is the way we express.

Art is a way to show.

resilience and strong negative emotions

I was searching for something else and came across this test of resilience. I want to share this because I think this is the kind of psychology that can actually help.
What I miss though is how to cope with strong negative emotions, strong negative memories and alike. I recommend that one tries to reach out to someone that can be trusted. It is very important to find the right listener.

house and education; variabiltiy

Houses and education have some common features. Some like a standard house, others prefer something that fits their needs. Some have many requirements, other have less. Some houses have a lot of distinctive specialities, others have as little variability as possible. What I love about old houses are the many imperfections, but these are the most interesting about the house. When I worked at my childs delivery, my attention would go to the cracks above my head and I would think how the crack is interesting to look at when I cannot moove and have to lay in bed.

presents for development

Why do we celebrate birthdays? One answer might be to give toys that are appropriate for the age of a child. Games to practice some skill that corresponds with the developmental age of the child. For my first child, I used to read the age on the label and I was often disappointed because the toys didn't interest her. Now I'm more into books and stuff that is appropriate for different ages and children. I can look at a child and observe and see what it does, why and what it needs. Rarely does the anniversary correspond to a transition to another stage of development. Or am I wrong?

*new* item at Chez Odile is the metachat where Creatives and Thinkers meet.
