L’Union Fait La Farce by Thomas Mainlaender.
Here’s an idea for you to cut through all the small talk, next time you host a party:
A few days ago I experimented with a “Cheese Personality Party”. Everyone had to bring a cheese that reflects their personality in some way or the other. Once everyone was present, we stood in a circle around the cheeses and listened to everyone’s reasoning for their choice. I was surprised how honest, sometimes vulnerable and sometimes just plain funny the thinking was. I will definitely do this again. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Looking at a cheese board filled with your friends’ personalities is simply the best.
My friends Stephanie and Jonathan Fields definitely made us laugh by bringing a cheesecake. Well played!
A few weeks ago I joined my friend Sue at Prospect Park with her dogs, during off leash hours, and all I could think off is how much I would love to line up all the dogs for a group shot. (Hundreds of dogs!)
A few days ago she tagged me on a Instagram account called Saratoga Dogwalker, and I knew instantly why! They line up their pups regularly. I am so in love with this.
My love for Choir! Choir! Choir! runs so deep! This one with Rick Astley made my heart burst. The founders of this heart-opening organization are definitely on my list of people I would love to have coffee with one day. There is so much JOY oozing out of this video!
Loving this idea: Library Planet is like a ‘Lonely Planet’ for libraries of the world. Next time I book a trip I might book it around a library I want to see. They don’t have many entries yet, but I can see how beautiful this could be. Everybody can contribute. Let’s help these folks fill this directory with our beautiful libraries. Who’s in?
I got to experience this talk live, this past summer at the wonderful Do Lectures. Thank you internet for letting me watch it again. Duke is a wonderful human. Such a beautiful concept of embracing the beauty of not knowing but recognizing it feeling right.
I was gifted a tiny wooden box with everything you need to make tiny S’mores. I can’t get over the cuteness. My kids will lose their minds when we dig in.
I honestly think this piece of wood in the shape of a phone could help me do a digital detox. Just like so many of you, I am addicted to my phone.
A version of “Guess Who?” that only features women who have changed the world: Who’s She? LOVE this!
Completely in love with this Automatic Adding Machine from the 1950s! Long live analog!
A guerrilla art series of unexpected sayings on metal street signs, installed in public spaces. Love this project by April Soetarman. She is running a Kickstarter so you can get your own sign, here.
These upcycled footwear and apparel concepts by Designer Nicole McLaughlin made me look.
