Urban Heroes

I live for these joyful NYC moments: I stood on a subway platform waiting for a train to arrive when these two women showed up, casually taking an impressive amount of balloons onto the subway. Urban heroes! Swipe right to see the video. Watch the guy on the right very very slowly realize what’s happening. I LOVE NYC!

May we all walk through life and seemingly difficult moments with such confidence.

Hair Affairs

Helge Simon’s Hair Affair brushes make me a little uncomfortable, yet I am intrigued. They are made of artificial human hair. And, there is a Kickstarter. I can’t stop giggling.

So proud of my friend Ingrid Fetell: A few weeks ago she gave a talk on the topic of joy at the prestigious TED Conference and now here it is, featured on the TED Homepage. Just like her, I believe in the importance of joy!

Why You Should Make Useless Things
