I have been a fan of The Invisible Dog since I first learned about it, 7 years ago. And by moving my businesses into the Invisible Dog earlier this year, I can now even call myself a lucky member of this talented community. Lucien Zayan, the director of The Invisible Dog, is a giant ball of love. He has artfully curated a small community of artists and visual storytellers that give a damn. I can’t thank Lucien, and our landlord Frank, enough for letting us do our thing on Bergen Street. I am so totally going to support Lucien’s Kickstarter for the 7th’s season.
Two weeks ago, the White House reached out to Kickstarter and asked to help the millions of refugees seeking safety in the Middle East and Europe! Kickstarter said yes and launched this aid refugees campaign.
This isn’t a typical Kickstarter project. The rewards are all about giving, not getting. Kickstarter is donating 100% of their usual fee to support these aid efforts.
I applaud this. Go Kickstarter for opening up their platform. And go internet.
I just “backed” the campaign. Will you join me?. (Your donation is is 100% tax deductible.)
“It seems that the presence of an object is required to make its absence felt (or to make the absence of something felt). A kind of longing may have preceded their arrival, but you have to meet in order to feel the full force of your frustration in their absence.”
– Adrienne Rich

Team CreativeMornings is currently on our yearly company retreat, and staying in Tom Givone’s *stunning* Floating Farmhouse in upstate New York. What an incredible privilege to dip into this beauty of a home. I can’t stop gushing over all the little details.
I get very excited when furniture is multi functional: The Flop chair looks comfortable and spacious, and it can be easily turned into a functional twin bed. And as a bonus feature, all the guest bed paraphernalia (pillows, comforters, and sheets) can be stored right inside the chair. So good!
