“Just Right.”

Her blog entries are rare, but Jessica Poundstone’s entries at Utopia Parkway are usually gems that I can’t wait to share with others. Today’s is no exception:

In a story on a new planet European astronomers discovered…

“However, there is the tantalising question as to whether it lies within the “Goldilocks Zone” — a distance from its star that is not too hot, not too cold, just right.”

Meanwhile, my friend and co-worker Margaret Smith, author of Holy Struggle (a profound work of poetry and biography on the life of Gerard Manley Hopkins), noted this poorly-worded headline in today’s New York Times:

Abuses at Prison Tied to Officers in Intelligence

And she adds:

“…since the prisoners were often the ones tied up.”

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
