One of the blogs I (and about 30 million other people around the world) really love is 1000 Awesome Things.
I get the RSS feed into my inbox and now when the folder lights up to let me know there is a new post I get a little rush of excitement about it. They usually make me smile, they often make me think and they give me a few moments in the day when I feel like I’m doing something that’s really good for me. Sometimes I save it up for just before I turn off the computer before bed.
I like to share them, too. Mr Vivi gets the odd one forwarded on. I’ve posted a couple on the Facebook page. I send them to myself at school so I can print them out and stick them up on the window for the kids to read – and there’s nothing quite like the feeling of catching a group of kids gathered around something you’ve put up just for them to see, giggling and pointing and having an actual discussion in mostly complete sentences.
Last week 1000 Awesome Things posted #285 – Your Skin and it was, indeed, a pretty awesome post about a pretty awesome organ. So I’ve decided to share it with you. Enjoy!>
