Nothing pushes my buttons more than flakiness. And there’s a lot of it in NYC. Must teach my children to be reliable. Yes. Yes. Yes.
“Never apologize for working. You love what you do, and loving what you do is a great gift to give to your child.” – Marlene Sanders
“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is not safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
– Helen Keller
A beautiful cutting board. But I was mostly fascinated by the oddly arranged carrots. So good.

I watched my coworker Emerline use Flowstate and it blew my mind. It is a writing tool designed to snowball a person’s primal focus into a serene state of creative flow. No overthinking what you wrote. No instant deleting, going back and editing. Just writing! How? You set a focus time, you start writing and when you pause, the app blurs out and makes everything you wrote disappear. The document only gets saved if you complete your timed-writing exercise. Terrifying and brilliant all at once. Try it: Flowstate.
An immersive, completely silent “desert” has been installed at the Guggenheim. Can’t wait to experience this!
