HandsOn Animal Gloves

I didn’t enjoy brushing my dog with a regular dog brush. I started digging around on the internet hoping someone invented something better: HandsOn Animal Gloves. My dog LOVES when I brush her with these! (Yes, they look hideous.)

The American Scam

“Everyone knows how productive you can be when you’re avoiding something. We are currently experiencing the civilizational equivalent of that anxiety you feel when you have something due the next day that you haven’t even started thinking about and yet still you sit there, helplessly watching whole seasons of mediocre TV or compulsively clicking through quintillions of memes even as your brain screams at you — the same way we scream at our politicians about guns and abortion and climate change — to do something.”

Kevin Kelly Tweeted about this short animation. Well worth a watch.

Feeling Nameless Feelings

“Consider that collectively, we are in a place where many of us are feeling nameless feelings right now. It is possible that years down the line, we may have to create new words to describe what we were feeling in this space. Some of the words we use to describe what we’re experiencing right now just might not feel like enough… and maybe, that’s okay… because we have never been here before. This is all brand new, and maybe, in time, the words will need to be new, too.

Perhaps, feeling what you need to feel is a process… and finding the language for those feelings is a process, too.”

Link Pack

I am crushed by the rulings of the Supreme Court this week. Especially the overturning of Roe vs Wade. No, we are not ok. What can you do?

You in Action

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open…”
Martha Graham

One Time Secret

My super-smart developer friend John told me about One Time Secret. It helps you keep sensitive info out of your email and chat logs. Helpful!

PS: Apparently you can send one-way secret messages through Slack as well.

Pleasure in Work

“When we find pleasure in our work, we see how jobs and tasks, even ones that are challenging or difficult, can be done with purpose and engagement. Work, a necessary component of life, has the potential for both ecological responsibility and a sense of dignity. Finding pleasure in our work guides us in two ways: it helps us recognize personal work that is inspiring, gratifying, and productive; and it helps us humanize any workplace we find ourselves in.”
– Alice Waters

A Poem for Someone Who is Juggling Her Life

This is a poem for someone
who is juggling her life.
Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.

It needs repeating
over and over
to catch her attention
over and over,
as someone who is juggling her life
finds it difficult to hear.

Be still sometimes.
Be still sometimes.
Let it all fall sometimes.

– Rose Cook
