Mont Saint-Michel looks like a fairytale castle, but it’s actually a French monastery. It’s on my list of places to visit one day.
My friend Erik Proulx captured 74-year-old Austin resident Charlie doing some incredible flips of a diving board. Apparently he does so every Sunday 5pm, like clock-work. Yes to routines, and yes to growing old gracefully and full of life.
This made me chuckle: Egyptian bookstore’s ‘Scream Room’ lets customers yell all they want. I bet this would be really popular in the US right now…
What was once known as the land of cheap rip-offs may now offer a glimpse of the future — and American companies are taking notice: Chinese Tech Firms Forced to Choose Market: Home or Everywhere Else
The idea behind the FOMO Survival Kit made me chuckle. It’s a student project by Lara Défayes, a fresh Media & Interaction design graduate of ECAL in Lausanne.
(FOMO = Fear Of Missing Out)
If I was a photographer I would jump on buying the Palette Controllers for faster and more convenient photo retouching.
Mortified is an event series where adults share their most embarrassing childhood artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, plays, home movies, art) on stage. Hear grown men and women confront their past with tales of their first kiss, first puff, worst prom, fights with mom, life at bible camp, worst hand job, best mall job, and reasons they deserved to marry Jon Bon Jovi. So incredibly entertaining.
Definitely subscribing to their podcast.
“Everything is instant gratification and the problem is too many people have applied that instant gratification to their careers and to their lives.”
— Simon Sinek
Last Friday the remarkable Simon Sinek spoke at our CreativeMornings/San Diego chapter. The rockstar chapter that they are, they already uploaded the talk. (Mind blown!) Hear Simon speak about technology, millennials, and the importance of practicing empathy.
Simon also gave a talk titled Love Your Work at our New York chapter a few years back.
Oh don’t we all know that feeling of JUST missing the subway train: “There is no quintessential NYC experience quite like running down a subway station platform with your arms flapping all about like a distressed penguin, making eye contact with the conductor, and then hesitantly stretching out your hand to try to slip between the doors before they close.”
This footage of an up close humpback whale took my breath away and almost made me drop my coffee.
The Invisible Dog is my work home. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful community of artists and creators. (My businesses run out of the ‘office space’ side of the building) Every year Lucien, the director of this cultural hub, runs a Kickstarter to help keep the lights on.
In a city where everything is making room for shiny new condo buildings, the Invisible Dog is a refreshing reminder on how important is to create an affordable studio space for artists.
If you, just like me, appreciate what Lucien is doing on Bergen street, help me support his Invisible Dog Kickstarter Campaign!
Start your day out with a smile watching this young polar bear frolic in a ice-filled kiddie pool. You’re welcome.
I am never not thinking about how to get better at email. I enjoyed this article: An etiquette update: Brevity is the highest virtue. And then also, my friend Jocelyn K. Glei’s book that just came out: Unsubscribe.
