  1. I especially liked the article from Paul Jarvis. I also really enjoyed the article about thinking differently about time. Your Link Love Column never disappoints me and this group of links were on point as usual! Thank you for sharing your finds, I also love the photo you chose to share as well!

    That self-employed article hit a little close to home. Not to me, but to an artist and friend I follow on facebook. He’s a self-employed artist, has two kids and going through a divorce. Recently, he had to go onto a campagin fun website to ask for donations to help him and his kids out. He’s selling art, and he’s in shows, but he’s also a bit of a niche art, kinda of creepy, spooky, stuff out of dreams kind of art. But when I went to promote his campagin on my facebook and blog, people were so cruel about how he’s self-employed and not making money. When I read the article you posted I blasted it all over to let those detractors know it’s not just him, but more self-employed people out there who are struggling. Thanks for directing us towards that article!

      Melinda: It’s so hard out there for so many people and it makes me incredibly sad that people would choose to pick on your friend! He’s obviously doing the best he can and working hard to make ends meet and the last thing he needs are these naysayers. Artists are sensitive folks at heart and he doesn’t need this added negativity during a time of hardship. Wishing your friend all the best!
