"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

No definition or quote this time, since it's time for the...
Blogger Idol Week 3 Top Picks!
And now, in no particular order...
Frac » A day in the life of Jeff. A short fictional story. (This one is excellent, particularly the end. VERY clever!)
Deneice » A day in the life of my eating disorder (So personal and intense, this young lady has a tremendous amount of courage to share these sorts of things. Strength like this is truly an inspiration. Way to go! So far this lady is batting 1,000 and has been on my list every single time.)
amanda » A Day In My Life Photographic Style...gee, something new they say! (This one was neat, Amanda takes normal stuff and through her lens it becomes extraordinary. Slow load and worth it.)
sílent tríbute » A day in the life of a werewolf named Jess. (Why does this girl keep ending up in my top five lists? Check her out and see. She's been on my top five twice now.)
Keks » I'm known for taking things too literally. (Another cool one. When he says "literally" he means literally.)
Almost every entry this week was good quality. I read and enjoyed them all.
Darren at the Living Room, the originator of the Blogger Idol, wanted this "contest" to serve as a connection point for bloggers. Well Darren, you're doin' it! Thanks!
