1. My friend’s new book arts gallery got a article in a local magazine. I want to buy just about every book in her store, so it’s definitely worth a look.

2. Remember when I went to demolition derbies? Apparently there’s a new show about the Utah derby scene on the Velocity channel.

3. And finally, here’s the hippie reading of the week, which is appropriate if your hard little heart has been getting more brittle with the ongoing winter:

“The image is that of a warm spring wind steadily dissolving winter ice. This is meant to teach us that it is through perseverance and gentleness – rather than aggressiveness – that we overcome what is hard.”
