Frequent commenter Neil is doing a Flickr project called "Smiles for World Peas" Day on April 12. Take a photo of your child smiling, and then post your photo to the group page or send him the photo (if you don't have a Flickr site) on April 12 (not before or after). Read details here.
Reader and childhood friend Beth tips me off to her mom's friend who writes a blog called 37 Days that talks about what you'd do if you knew you only had 37 days left to live. (Check out the blog to see why 37 days.) It's a celebration of life and about embracing the things you want to do. She's also got a book coming out in the fall based on the 37 days idea, so stay tuned for that.
While we're talking about jumpstarting creativity, has anyone else read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield? I read it on friend Scott's recommendation, and am finding it simple but also strangely motivating in its bluntness. For those of you (and I read your comments on the post Friday about The Ten-Year Nap, so I know you're out there) who feel like there's still some passion there but you're having problems re-igniting it even once you're getting a grip on the kid-flow thing, it might be a place to start. And it's in short chapters, so you can read a bit at a time, while your kid naps, or while you're on the bus.
And, if you're still cool enough to see live music, check out my friend's project WhoTours.com, which collects tour info from around the web so you can set up favorites and get notifications whenever your favorite bands are going to be playing near you. If you're not cool enough to see live music anymore, pass it on to your younger siblings.
What have you guys found that's cool and of interest?
