    On January 26, 2004, I posed a question at  Personal Tangents :

"What did you do today to nourish your soul?"

The idea rattled around in my head for a while, so I decided to see if I could come up with a similar type of question each Monday.  Some of the original posts have additional links or commentary along with the question. There are no rules- answer anywhere including in comments after the blog post (permalinks listed below), or use the question for self reflection.

All suggestions, comments and feedback are welcome; either in the general comments book or the specific post comments at Tangents or write to stormwind at gmail dot com (or stormwindca at att dot net).

If you like memes, there are several running around the internet. I really like the Generosity Game basic idea and feel that it has more potential than anything I could come up with... but I also like Unconscious Mutterings and that is just for fun.
