Blog roundup: Cartesian dualism edition.

You’ve got to love a blogger who can work the phrase “Cartesian dualism” into a post. In this case the blogger is my daughter, Abigail Perry, and the article is about us both. (But mostly her.)

Don’t let the title “Glorifying my mom (who’s glorifying me)” fool you. It’s not an exercise in mutual admiration, although I do admire the hell out of her. The post is about her re-reading “You can’t even tell perfect bodies apart,” a post I wrote about Abby’s near-fatal illness, and then reflecting on who she was then and who she is now.

The rest of the roundup isn’t nearly as sniffle-inducing.

  1. I love the I’m not her anymore piece. Her advice to ask “What’s different now?” is so obvious, it’s brilliant.

    Thanks for this list…I loved “The Lowly Dollar” post…pretty much sums up our summer this year and we are having a blast.
