I am a fan of the podcast On Being as it is, but this episode with Maria Popova, force behind brain pickings, stopped me in my tracks. What a gentle, wise, old soul Maria is. I am lucky to call her a friend.
Last night I had the incredible privilege to see music legend Stevie Wonder in concert. What a talented human being! There is nothing I respect and admire more than masters in their craft and growing old gracefully, staying relevant and full of life.
Woah! This brand new mini site by Squarespace just stopped me in my tracks. (see what I did there?)
Squarespace believes that the world is filled with too many restless people in need of rest – that’s why they teamed up with Jeff Bridges who created sleeping tapes with intriguing sounds, noises and other things to help you get a good night’s rest.
100% of the retail price from each album sold goes directly to No Kid Hungry. Sleep better and do good.
Well done, Squarespace.
Impromptu dance parties are happening more frequently at casa swissmiss these days, with disco light and all. And I find myself constantly looking for new songs to add to my playlist.
What’s *the* song that will get you off your feet and onto the dance floor? Let’s start a YouTube-Link-Comment thread? YES?
“There are intangible qualities of companies that you pour your heart into that are impossible to purchase. And it’s really special when you create a company that provides that. Nothing tops the feeling of being a part of that.”

I just remembered this WNYC podcast on Houseguest Hospitality with Philip Galanes, New York Times Social Q’s columnist. Some good tips on how to be a graceful guest or host.
I know nothing about audio equipment, so I have no idea if this Marshall Hanwell 50th Anniversary Speaker is any good, but I can say with confidence, it is a thing of beauty.
Mailchimp managed to make email marketing fun, not an easy task. Over the past few years I’ve had the chance to see a bit behind the scenes at Mailchimp and I have the utmost respect for their company culture and values they operate under. I consider them “Design Philanthropists” as they support so many initiatives I care about in the creative world.
If you haven’t seen Ben Chestnut’s CreativeMornings talk, I recommend you bookmark it. It’s one of my favorites.
Debbie, Thank you for making this happen!
Twitter finally launched its much-anticipated Music App. It lets you see what music is trending, emerging and find new music from artists you follow. Smart.
