I Want To Live

“I want to live
the rest of my life,
however long or short,
with as much sweetness
as I can decently manage,
loving all the people I love,
and doing as much as I can
of the work I still have to do.
I am going to write fire
until it comes out of my ears,
my eyes, my noseholes-everywhere.
Until it’s every breath I breathe.
I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!”
– Audre Lourde

Peculiar Looking Candles

Enamored with these peculiar looking candles by Piera Bochner. Brooklyn made!

Lunch Bag

I recently discovered The Organic Company and I love so many of their products. This is one of them.

Spaghetti Brain

“Men are like waffles because they are better able to compartmentalize. They have little waffle squares which they pour syrupey information into. And each square can contain a different subject. Making it much easier for men to think of one thing and one thing only at a time.

Women on the other hand are spaghetti brains. Meaning all of the noodles of information touch each other. So while thinking of work, a woman can be thinking of the errands she has to run and what she’ll have for dinner and a myriad of other topics.”

Yes, this is a ridiculous simplification but it made me chuckle. Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti, by Bill and Pam Farrel

The Unknown Sticker Patch

The Unknown Sticker Patch by Adam JK made me chuckle. Patch measures 4 inches across with white embroidery on black chenille and self-adhesive back.

Sadeck Waff

Stunning. Thank you for your gift, Sadeck Waff.

Watering Can and Mister

I can’t make up my mind if this watering can / mister is silly or brilliant. It made me look.

Miniature Dioramas

Miniature Calendar is a stunning and wildly creative project by Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka, featuring miniature dioramas using common household objects and little plastic figurines. You can see a video with some of his process here. I recommend you follow Tasuya on Instagram, his account is a delightful scroll.

(Thank you A!)

Living Adventurously Podcast

I had the pleasure to meet Alastair at the 2018 Do Lectures, where he gave a deeply inspiring talk, challenging all of us to bring a sense of adventure into our day to day.

I just recently discovered his Living Adventurously Podcast. So glad I did.

Geometric Colouring Book


I am super duper into this Geometric Coloring Book by Kapitza.

Mundane Halloween

A zookeeper in charge of the pandas

A person going to work on a windy day

The woman who’s having her bang cut but the hairdresser is nowhere to be found

The woman looking for a seat at food court

I love the notion of Mundane Halloween in Taiwan And Japan where everyone dresses up as normal, everyday people. More here.

Gasta

These blobs by Gasta are mesmerizing.

Modern Bird Feeder

I am in love with this modern, sculptural bird feeder! (I know, I know, it’s price-y!)

Photography by Raf Maes

What stunning images. I would hang a large print in my home, for sure! Consider me a fan, Raf Maes.

Hand-Free Leash

My kids and I are thinking of adopting an adult or senior dog. (Squeal!) As I have been talking about it with friends, the internet is of course promptly serving me up ads for dog related products. Here’s one that made me look: A hands-free leash. I am wondering if dog-owners are shaking their heads at this or if this is actually useful.

Something & Nothing Seltzers

I arrived back in Brooklyn after two weeks in Switzerland and my friend Yvonne filled my fridge with Something & Nothing Seltzers as a welcome home present. The branding, the packaging and even the taste have me in a tizzy! A good tizzy! (I recently hit my 6 month mark of not drinking alcohol and fun Seltzers like these give me life!)

The Best Cover Letter Ever Written

Benedict Cumberbatch Reads “the Best Cover Letter Ever Written”. Glorious.
