A big thank you to Onsen for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed this week.
Looking for the perfect gift? Then this one’s for you :)
Onsen married functionality with minimalism to craft a lightweight bath towel that dries like its job depended on it. The key to this obsessively designed towel isn’t what they added, but rather what they eliminated. Most towels go through a chemical bathing process so that they feel soft and fluffy, at least at first. Not Onsen. Instead of short-lived softness that washes away, Onsen relies on premium materials and traditional techniques to deliver a thirsty towel that only gets softer over time.
– That grating sound a chip reader makes to tell you to remove your credit card? It’s called “sonic trash“: a sound that’s unpleasant, distressing, and degrading to everyday experiences. And the cognitive and emotional effect is greater than you think.
– CreativeMornings is nurturing a rolodex of creative companies and a job board, helping you find your heart-forward creative collaborators. Our events open hearts, these tools open career doors. I am happy about this evolution.

I just spent the last 2 hours listening to episodes of Kind World. A beautiful podcast celebrating humanity at its best, packed with compassion and heart-forward humans. While I still have many ore episodes to discover, this one, about a kind man called Karim, who built an invisible community with this acts of kindness, really moved me.
I am so happy to see my friend Bas Berkhout for once in front of the camera.
I met Bas many moons ago when he filmed a Like Knows Like with me. During a day of filming, I was able to plant the seed that he should leave Holland and move to NYC. He did and joined our creative co-working community. We’ve been fast friends ever since. Love this talented man.
