The folks at GIR are launching a Kickstarter campaign for a series of silicone lids to top any pot or turn any bowl into a storage container (seeing is believing). To get in on the action, check out their campaign here.

“… The real trick to producing great work isn’t to find ways to eliminate the edgy, nervous feeling that you might be swimming out of your depth. Instead, it’s to remember that everyone else is feeling it, too. We’re all in deep water. Which is fine: it’s by far the most exciting place to be.”
Nobody Knows What The Hell They Are Doing, by Oliver Burkeman
“To be mature you have to realize what you value most. It is extraordinary to discover that comparatively few people reach this level of maturity. They seem never to have paused to consider what has value for them. They spend great effort and sometimes make great sacrifices for values that, fundamentally, meet no real needs of their own. Perhaps they have imbibed the values of their particular profession or job, of their community or their neighbors, of their parents or family. Not to arrive at a clear understanding of one’s own values is a tragic waste. You have missed the whole point of what life is for.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt
“Hurrying and delaying are alike ways of trying to resist the present.”
