7 Quick Takes: Volume 26



The idea of 7 Quick Takes Friday comes from blogger Jennifer Fulwiler, who hosts it weekly at her site, Conversion Diary.


It's too bad that Controversy Week is over, because I have something really earth-shattering to discuss: the correct number of spaces to type between sentences.

Just kidding, friends. I'm not touching that subject with a ten-foot pole.

(Hint: it's one.)

This weekend, I'll be continuing a project begun last weekend: painting the living room. Groan. Thankfully, I have the help of a dear friend. (Friends automatically become more dear when they go home with your ceiling color in their hair.)

Weekends mean recreation; painting means art... so today's episode of 7 Quick Takes is on the theme of Recreation Meets Art.

This playing field reminds me of Dr. Seuss, but the video in the blog reminds me of Ingmar Bergman (except that people are smiling):

The world's first Puckelball pitch, designed by Johan Strom of Sweden. From the blog Playscapes.

This brings a whole new meaning to "bend it like Beckham."

"Paper art is about so much more than a finely executed paper plane."
