How stunning are these Ceramic Nesting Bowls?
How ridiculously beautiful is this portable, rechargeable, old-school looking lamp? (I mentioned it in last week’s Friday Link Pack but love it so much I have to post it with a photo! Wishlisted!)
Dear Iceland-knowledgeable Tweeps, would you have some travel tips for me and my two kids (12/16) for four days in August? We are flying in and out of Reykjavík and have a car. pic.twitter.com/HeKZ46u9ps

Do you happen to have any Iceland travel tips? Care to share? Thank uuuuuu!
A question I ask multiple times a day at this point: Where am I? Above the line (open, curious, committed to learning) or below the line (committed to being right, defensive, closed)? Such a helpful tool. If you want to hear more, listen to this podcast I posted about last week.
The video above is from Concious Leadership Group.

“I’m a writer, and everything I write is both a confession and a struggle to understand things about myself and this world in which I live. This is what everyone’s work should be…whether you dance or paint or sing. It is a confession, a baring of your soul, your faults, those things you simply cannot or will not understand or accept. You stumble forward, confused, and you share. If you’re lucky, you learn something.”
– Arthur Miller
“Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
This episode of the Farnham Project Podcast is pure gold. Listen to Jim Dethmer, founding partner at the Conscious Leadership Group and the co-author of the insightful book, The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, spew an impressive amount of wisdom. It’s so dense I had to listen to it twice, the second time with a pen and paper to take notes. Wow. Here’s to leading and parenting above the line.
“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which means never losing your enthusiasm.”
– Aldous Huxley
Kevin Kelly turned 70 last week and he gave us a gift: For the past few years, he’s jotted down bits of unsolicited advice each year and shared it with us. Some of my favorites are:
– Dont ever work for someone you dont want to become.
– Your growth as a conscious being is measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations you are willing to have.
– Courtesy costs nothing. Lower the toilet seat after use. Let the people in the elevator exit before you enter. Return shopping carts to their designated areas. When you borrow something, return it better shape (filled up, cleaned) than when you got it.
This one made me laugh:
– To keep young kids behaving on a car road trip, have a bag of their favorite candy and throw a piece out the window each time they misbehave.

“This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to realize it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time.”
– Haruki Murakami
