Ah, blogging. It's a demanding past time. I don't have a good essay to post today. I have some other places that might be of interest. At Gifted Exchange, I'm writing about "Raising the ceiling" (riffing off Arthur Levine's op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal on "The Suburban Education Gap"). At CBS MoneyWatch, I did a post yesterday on "The new secret to financial success." I learned that the publication date for What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend will be December 31. I'm looking for suggestions of people to interview for the sequel to that on WTMSPD At Work. I enjoyed listening to a (warning!) one hour conversation between Meagan Francis and Gretchen Rubin via The Kitchen Hour podcast. And I'm trying to take some time most days to stare out the living room window at this blazing scarlet maple tree (pictured). Come late afternoon, the light is just perfect. What have you been working on this week?
