It has been much longer than a week since I posted a Weekly Link but if you will remember this is where I show you how I have a problem…internet addiction and you can also see what is going on in the recesses of my mind or what Tara and I are discussing and not to mention what is amusing Team McComas right now.

"Maps make compelling promises. (..) They grasp greater concepts, detect patterns, prognosticate, and reveal new layers of meaning. (..) Cartography can be an incredible form of escapism, as maps act as proxies for experiences, real or fabricated. Whatever their purpose or subject matter, even the most rudimentary of maps have an inherent beauty, an attraction in their way of ordering things".
