There is No Time for Anything Else

“None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after-thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”
— Keanu Reeves

Rock Bottom

“I thought to myself if you can hit rock bottom doing the safe things everyone wants you to do, then you might as well hit rock bottom doing what you want to do.”

Ashley C. Ford on Human Storytelling, Financial Wellness, and Learning to Ask for Help

Life Altering

The Period Game

The Period Game got me with the spinning ovaries. I am definitely backing this Kickstarter.

To Wonder at Beauty

To wonder at beauty,
Stand guard over Truth
Look up to the noble
Resolve on the Good.

This leadeth man truly
To purpose in living,
To right in his doing,
To peace in his feeling,
To light in his thinking.

And teaches him trust,
In the working of God,
In all that there is,
In the width of the world,
In the depth of the Soul.

— Rudolf Steiner

These art installations by Daniel Forero made me gasp.

Stone Door Stop

While traveling through upstate NY last week I discovered this tiny and design-y shop called Sunny’s pop. And, I fell in love with this doorstop.

Life Lessons

1. Everything is temporary.
2. Life is not fair.
3. Others treat you the way you treat yourself.
4. Happiness is a choice and requires hard work.
5. Beneath anger is always fear.
6. Family are the people who truly love you.
7. Things don’t matter that much.
8. A lifetime is not very long.
9. You played it too safe. You should take more risks.

Number 3 really hit me in the heart: Lessons people learn too late in life.

One Breath Around The World

What a stunning short film.

(Thank you Gordana)

Brooklyn Boombox

This boombox reminds me of the one I had when I was a kid. Weirdly excited to see this design having a comeback.

Daniil Trifonov: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

This Tiny Desk concert with Daniil Trifonov made me gasp.

Fujiyama Glass

Ok, I realize this glass is pricey with its $100 price tag but look at it! It’s absolutely stunning! I love and agree with this line in the product description: “a good drink requires a good presentation”. It is inspired by Japan’s tallest mountain, Mt. Fuji and is handblown by master craftsmen at Sugahara Glassworks. Wishlisted!

Multi-Layered Gowns by Iris Van Herpen

I can’t take my eyes off these multi-layered gowns by Iris Van Herpen.

Epoch

Completely fascinating by this video project, made entirely out of Google Earth images. Hat tip to Kevin McGloughlin.

Entryway Mosaic Floor

Last week I was invited to a friend’s house and this is the mosaic that greeted me at the entryway. What a stunning statement right at the entrance of a home! The masterpiece is by Sarah Donato. I learned from the owner Jules that they were inspired by Nick Misani’s work.

Now I am dreaming of one day renovating a home and being able to hire Sarah to make me a custom mosaic. One day! One day!

Kraft WritersBlok Keyboard Notebook

Love the simplicity of this grid paper notebook which fits perfectly in front of the keyboard.

Moving the Giants – An Urgent Plan to Save the Planet

The film Moving the Giants profiles David Milarch, an arborist from central Michigan. In 1991, Milarch had a near death experience that inspired a personal quest – to archive the genetics of the world’s largest trees before they’re gone and to replant global forests to fight climate change.

Art by Pae White


Last week, while in San Francisco, I had the unexpected pleasure to meet contemporary American artist Pae White. Her work is stunning.

The world is full of super inspiring, creative humans.

Pocket Miroir Projector

While visiting my friend in California last week I got to experience this pocket projector by miroir. I would have never thought such a tiny projector could be so powerful. Projecting a movie on my bedroom ceiling sounds pretty cool…

Speechify: Audiobook Anything

This app just took my breath away: Speechify let’s you turn anything into an audiobook – readings for school, reports for work, PDFs on your computer, articles online, physical books. This way you can listen while doing other things like driving, cooking, or at the gym.

Adobe Creative Residency 2019

The Adobe Creative Residency is currently taking applications until February 7th. It’s the *coolest* project Adobe has ever put together! I wish I could apply! Maybe you can?

Citizen Game

Citizen a reality-based board game in which you take on a ’cause’ and use actual members of Congress to pass your cause/bill through. Can’t wait to get my copy!

2009/2019

I find the currently happening 10-Year-Challenge a bit silly, but then I saw this interpretation and couldn’t stop laughing. Well done, Violeta Corderosa.
