Friday, January 30, 2004 Week 2: Top 5 Picks Yay! I got through reading this week's entries. I'm learning to be a bit more Simon-like in my technique (not that I'm gonna blast anyone or anything--I've just learned that if a story doesn't immediately grab my interest, it's not Top 5 material). All of the entries were really good, as usual, but there were five that particularly shone. As I said previously, any previous Top 5 "winners" are disqualified from future Top 5 lists, simply because I want to showcase as many as possible and I know me--I'll keep going to the same five if I don't make myself look at others' offerings. So without further ado, here they are (in no particular order):
1.Where the Hell Was I?: Hilarious post about a freedom of expression that, if we're lucky, we'll never experience the sight of. 2.Look Both Ways: Photoessay of what freedom looks like. 3.The Journey: Musing on the choice between freedom and "safety". 4.Quantum Meruit: The freedom to leave one's past behind. 5. Again with the "last but not least" thing--this is the sentimental favorite for me this week: Thinking, Just Thinking. This is a wonderfully poignant tale of the freedom that springs from forgiveness.
