I recently bought this Meditation Stool by Spoko which allows me to meditate on the floor now, and no longer on my couch or on a chair. I am tall and inflexible and I am super uncomfortable sitting on the floor when meditating. This stool is not only comfortable but also beautiful. Super happy about this purchase.

I have been a fan of what Lucien is building with the Invisible Dog since it launched 11 years ago. And for the last 4 years I have had the honor to give my companies a home inside the building that is named after his organization. If you love what Lucien does for the arts, the neighborhood of Boerum Hill and beyond, consider supporting his Kickstarter.
This man is a hero.

Photographs of jumpers blending into their surroundings for an inventive 1,000-hour knitting project. Wow!
I am loving the new Moon Phases Tattly by Amanda C Marino.
This design reminds me of my childhood in the Swiss Alps where many of our neighbors and friends lived according to the moon cycles. Did you know your laundry gets whiter if you wash it on certain days, your windows don’t get streaks when you clean them, your hair grows fuller, you’ll heal faster after a surgery, your vegetables grow bigger if you pay attention on in which phase of the moon you take care of these things?
Don’t believe me? Read up on it! There are calendars and books that help you understand when to do what based on the phase of the moon. It’s absolutely fascinating!
