Pizza in the wild by Los Angeles based photographer Jonpaul Douglass. Made me smile.
I just received a copy of these incredibly charming booklets that will help you navigate restaurant menus in Spain, Italy and France. The three phrase books feature simple A–Z listings that make it easy to find items that perplex the diner, allowing for navigation around ingredients that offend, disgust or just don’t appeal. While it’s probably easier to quickly Google the ingredient on your phone, I appreciate the analog approach to this ‘problem’.

In this beautiful CreativeMornings talk, former Fugees band member, John Forté shares his story, from his humble beginnings, to his successes, his 7 years in jail and to where he is now. This is the first time we had a musician perform on stage at one of our New York events. For me, it’s been one of the most magical CreativeMornings I had the chance to experience to date.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
