The new Reporter’s Notebook by Field Notes caught my eye. Love that they are experimenting with new formats. I have always loved long, skinny notebooks! Must order. Not familiar with Field Notes? Check out their entire collection.
Every time I grab my MacBook and see our custom CreativeMornings tabtag, it puts a smile on my face. I am usually not someone that would E-V-E-R put a sticker on anything I own, but the concept of tabtags won me over: They are glowing (!) and reusable MacBook stickers. You can remove them without a trace and reuse them over and over. SO MUCH FUN!

Always reminding my children of this, in different words though. Maybe I should try it this way.
A thrilling glass slide at 1,000 feet above Los Angeles jusy opened to the public. OH MY!

Dylan was just 20 years old when he appeared on the Folksingers Choice radio program on WBAI FM in New York City. He’d arrived in Manhattan just a few years earlier and was playing in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village, at one in particular he was paid “a dollar plus a cheeseburger.”
During this hour-long interview with Cynthia Gooding, Dylan played some of his own songs (“The Death of Emmett Till”, “Standing on the Highway”) and covers of classics by Howlin’ Wolf, Hank Williams, and Woody Guthrie. We scored this Blank on Blank with Dylan tuning up his guitar and playing his harmonica.
It’s a wonderful snapshot in time, with a young Dylan before he was famous and before he even released his debut album. He’s nervous and funny. He’s just a guy with a guitar with a little mischief underneath.
Listen to the full interview and hear some rarely heard songs here.
Hat tip to the team of Blank on Blank for creating this beautiful video series.
Under Our Skin grew out of conversations about how The Seattle Times covers race at a time when national and local events — the furor over police shootings, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, protests on college campuses and charged campaign rhetoric — dominate headlines. Absolutely fantastic.
“My view of human nature is that all of us are just holding it together in various ways — and that’s okay, and we just need to go easy with one another, knowing that we’re all these incredibly fragile beings.”
– Alain De Botton
