The Stove to Table Frying Pan JIU

The Frying Pan JIU is made from high quality cast iron and designed to look like a plate. A simple interlocking handle hooks onto the frying pan for cooking and moving, and then unhooks when you sit down to eat. LOVE!

Fascinated by these Balcony Curtains.

True Action

“True action, good and radiant action, my friends, does not spring from activity, from busy bustling, it does not spring from industrious hammering. It grows in the solitude of the mountains, it grows on the summits where silence and danger dwell.”
Hermann Hesse

Beyond Success

An exploration of the basic questions for anyone attempting to do business in a conscious way. Is it possible to do business, make a profit, act in truth and integrity and be of genuine service all at once? In his presentation Ram Dass depthfully sheds light and answers.

Ram Dass | How to Love Yourself

Last week, during my solo birthday trip to New Mexico, I was introduced to the work of Ram Dass. What a beautiful world it has opened up.

Ace of Cups | I Feel Good


From 1967 to 1972, the Ace of Cups were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution, the first ever all female rock band. They shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival.

Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, the Ace of Cups never got the chance to make a record… until now.

Check out their music. Love these ladies so much.

Color Wheel Socks

These socks make me happy.

David Hieatt in Conversation with Mark Guiness

“When I see people who don’t care about or don’t have pride in what they do, I need to get out of that building because I just can’t do it. So anyway, the next day, I went and spent £460 on floor paint, and the entire company painted the floor. And actually, that point was a really important point in the factory, and the team because actually, we all decided at that point, you know what, we didn’t want to be average, and the enemy was to be average. And actually, we all enjoyed painting the floor. And actually when we moved to the new building, a new factory, we’re all going to paint the floor again because I think that was the point where we became a team.”

This week’s guest on the 21st Century Creative podcast is David Hieatt, entrepreneur, author, speaker and founder of The Do Lectures. A solid citizen and human I admire tremendously. Listen to the podcast here.
