Monday Mentions: bits and curiosities from the around the web

Happy Monday, friends!  I've gathered a few links that may perk you up this morning.  Mondays tend to need an extra element of excitement and curiosity, no?

These 18 color coded bookshelves that will make your heart sing.

It's chic, cheap and all the craze, so why not express your love or decorate your favorite mug with chalkboard art? 

Fear.  It can be an illusive subject to tackle.  I contemplated and shared my best 10 tips for overcoming the scary and daunting over here.  Tell me what you think in the comment section!

Sometimes we, writers, need it socked to us.  Here's Dear Sugar's advice on how not to write like a girl.  Thanks, Candace.

Does anyone else find ordering cappuccinos whilst standing in flood waters peculiar?  I'm in awe over this "Floating City".

Rainbows and books make great art

Hey! Ex-Anthro display designer!  I'm now stalking your blog

I'm pretty even keel, but I was pissed when I read this.

Want to learn how great bloggers are taking great photographs?  Me too.  This e-course just landed on the top of my wish list.

I was moved by this beautiful Veterans Day tribute.   I'm so thankful to all the veterans who have sacrificed so much being of service to our country.  There aren't enough thanks to give.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Cassie,

Thanks for the nice post and the variety of links.

I too was PISSED when I read the link you have called "pissed...".

Thanks for sharing and for your ever searching for interesting topics for me to be aware of.

As a doctor, few things make me madder than insurance, meant to help, often...OFTEN...screws people over. Lack of insurance is also a real problem. Costs are UNREASONABLE. I happily cut my fees (really!) to help someone without insurance or with lousy insurance to help them out...it is called a Cash Discount. But at least it means I am paid something rather than a RICH insurance company screwing their own client (huge premiums!) and then they screw docotrs paying them less than they need to keep the doors open...ESPECIALLY CUZ WE HAVE TO PAY STAFF ALL THE TIME IT TAKES TO DEAL WITH THE INSURANCE HURDLES! Definitely a broken system. Doctors want to help usually, just ask.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
