Ode’s top 10 stories from 2008

Posted on Dec 24th, 2008 by Marmalade : Gaia Child Marmalade

For those who don’t find discussion of horror all that enticing, this blog is dedicated to you.  From a pagan view, this time of year is a time of darkness until the solstice and then its a time of celebration.  So… with the solstice already past us and on this the eve of Christmas, I present here a positive view of the year sponsored by the lovely magazine Ode: top 10 stories from 2008.  Cheers!

Oh thanks, Ben. I like Ode, although haven’t subscribed in the past year. I like the positive angle, as you probably can figure. But there’s something about this dark dark time too that moves the soul. Happy Holidays, friend!

I’ve subscribed to Ode for a few years I guess, but I don’t think I’ll subscribe again. I find that even though it does have some interesting material it never compels me.Some of it comes off as fluff pieces when what I really want is a deeper analysis of the issues, but I suppose that isn’t the purpose of Ode.

As I see it, its as problematic focusing solely on the positive as it is focusing solely on the negative. What I want is a news source that can objectively do both, but maybe that is asking for the impossible.

Happy Holidays!

Yes, exactly! (I think.) For some reason Ode didn’t compel me, even though I always wanted it to. Have you ever read the Sun magazine? That’s the only one I subscribe to at the moment. It’s part fiction, part non-fiction. People are always griping that it’s too “dark”. Hey, if you want some leftover copies, I could always mail them to you. So you could check it out.

Sun magazine? I’m not sure if I’ve come across it before. I’ll check it out and see if its something I’d be interested in.The public library here might have some copies I could check out. I’ll keep your offer in mind.
