“I think that we can’t go around measuring our goodness by what we don’t do—by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”
– Robert Nelson Jacobs
This is a page out of The Thanksgiving Reader, a new side project by Seth Godin and a few of his colleagues. It’s a bonafide Thanksgiving Family Tradition Experiment. And I like it. Check it out here.

After recovering, he found himself unable to resume the life he had before, and carrying a secret that took him a year to tell the world.
Amit, so much respect and gratitude for sharing your journey.

This is fascinating: In 2011, scientists revealed a metal so light that it could sit atop a dandelion without crushing its delicate, fluffy seeds.
On a dry lakebed in Nevada, a group of friends build the first scale model of the solar system with complete planetary orbits: a true illustration of our place in the universe. Stunning.
I realized quickly that not everyone is as comfortable talking about death as I am. This became especially clear once I moved to New York City.
While we don’t have to all believe in past lives, we should all be comfortable talking about death. I will make sure my kids will.
Integrity in business should be an imperative, not a nice to have.

Maria wrote a beautiful post remembering Oliver Sacks. To commemorate this irreplaceable man, she asked artist Debbie Millman to create a piece of art illustrating the passage that captures not only the heart of that heartening story, but the spirit in which Dr. Sacks inhabited and exited our world. The artwork is available as a print and I am donating all proceeds to the Oliver Sacks Foundation.
