Katrina Kenison’s blog “The Gift of an Ordinary Day” is so inspirational (and written so well); I always enjoy visiting her site and savoring her words.

Her story about her Grandmother Kenison especially resonated with me and with Katrina’s permission, click here and read this lovely tribute to her grandmother.

I think she would have been pleased to pass from this world to the next on this auspicious night of the full moon, the autumn equinox. Pleased too, to know that I am sitting alone in my kitchen this evening, the windows open wide, writing a few of my own memories down.

Another study – Facebook

Online social networking sites have revealed an entirely new method of self-presentation. This cyber social tool provides a new site of analysis to examine personality and identity. The current study examines how narcissism and self-esteem are manifested on the social networking Web site Facebook.com.

Have a Facebook account? Laura Buffardi, doctoral student in psychology, and associate professor W. Keith Campbell from the University of Georgia says it may tell them you are a narcissist.

The researchers found that the number of Facebook friends and wallposts that individuals have on their profile pages correlates with narcissism. Buffardi said this is consistent with how narcissists behave in the real-world, with numerous yet shallow relationships. Narcissists are also more likely to choose glamorous, self-promoting pictures for their main profile photos, she said, while others are more likely to use snapshots.
