Book Recommendation: Believing Is Seeing: Observations on the Mysteries of Photography by Errol Morris. A striking book on how photography shapes what we see and what we believe. One of the most unusual books I've read in years. It taught me an enormous amount about how photographs both inform and mislead. Highly, highly recommended.

Definitely interested in reading parts 2 and 3 of that series from Poor Girl Eats Well.

Melissa, there's a link to part 2 at the bottom of her Part 1 post, it's in the final paragraph. And then part 3 is here:

It's good stuff and I thought that post teaches quite a few things, including gratitude.

Poor Girl Eats well was an interesting series, and makes me sad for the lack of empathy in this world (one of the small problems I have on the MMM message boards is the proliferation of that).

Also, the Guardian aging article was interesting - I'd like to see more on that. I went to my 20th HS reunion. But I attended 2 high schools. The other school had a 22nd reunion, and I got to see photos on facebook.

Wow. Almost to a T, the men and women who left town looked way younger than their 40 years. And those who did not leave town looked much older. I have to wonder if it's lifestyle (food/ alcohol/ exercise) and "hope". Of course it's not always the case - most of my family is still in my home town and many of them are healthy.

A few of the guys looked so young I wondered who invited the 30 year olds!
