Edison electric light sign, circa 1900. This made me think of what invention in my lifetime will need a similar sign? Maybe self-driving cars?
Wave hands at faucet
Nothing happens, not a thing
Like I don't exist

“You want a social life, with friends.
A passionate love life and as well
To work hard every day. What’s true
Is of these three you may have two
And two can pay you dividends
But never may have three.
There isn’t time enough, my friends–
Though dawn begins, yet midnight ends–
To find the time to have love, work, and friends.
Michelangelo had feeling
For Vittoria and the Ceiling
But did he go to parties at day’s end?
Homer nightly went to banquets
Wrote all day but had no lockets
Bright with pictures of his Girl.
I know one who loves and parties
And has done so since his thirties
But writes hardly anything at all.”
– Kenneth Koch

“If you find yourself criticizing other people, you’re probably doing it out of Resistance. When we see others beginning to live their authentic selves, it drives us crazy if we have not lived out our own. Individuals who are realized in their own lives almost never criticize others. If they speak at all, it is to offer encouragement. Watch yourself. Of all the manifestations of Resistance, most only harm ourselves. Criticism and cruelty harm others as well.”

Intrigued by photographer Louis De Belle’s unconventional portraits of New York commuters.
Help people make their projects better instead of just hating on them. Help build versus destroy.

Then and now photos show people as young adults and at 100 years old. The sentimental series by photographer Jan Langer visually presents the inevitable changes that accompany aging.
“A men’s group is a group of men that commit to getting together on a regular basis, usually weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly. The general purpose of these meetings is simply to interact and communicate a level (or many levels) deeper than a normal social interaction.”
We all need a Men’s Group. Or two.
“I picture ‘calling in’ as a practice of pulling folks back in who have strayed from us. It means extending to ourselves the reality that we will and do fuck up, we stray, and there will always be a chance for us to return. Calling in as a practice of loving each other enough to allow each other to make mistakes, a practice of loving ourselves enough to know that what we’re trying to do here is a radical unlearning of everything we have been configured to believe is normal.”

“Good creators don’t talk shit about their fellow creators. They champion the work of those around them. They know how hard this stuff is. They accept that stumbles are part of what we do. And they treat one another with respect—because we all deserve that.”
– Eric Karjaluoto
