I normally have a quote by someone right here in this spot, but my computer is b0rked and has robbed me of much precious time this morning, so I urge you to think up something brilliant, which I know you can, and then imagine it sitting here looking all quotey. Got it? Beautiful.
This Five Star Friday roundup is brought to you by neighbors, an anniversary, inclusion, art, a power outage, a Thursday, literacy, questioning, disability, a relationship, love and the Internet, heartache, beauty, Roger Ebert, and passion.
And please leave a link to one of your own excellent weblog entries in the comments. There is never enough good reading to go around.
