Probably one of the most famous commencement speeches of all times: This is Water, by David Foster Wallace. 22 minutes well spent.
わたしのチイサナココロ [i have a small heart] is a short documentary accompanying one woman’s journey along the Kumano Kodo through the Kii mountains of Japan. This ancient pilgrimage route, one of only two Unesco World Heritage pilgrimage sites in the world, is considered the spiritual heart of Japan.
These delicate, miniature sculptures made from Dandelion Seeds are stunning.
I need no convincing to sleep.
“When people talk, listen completely. Don’t be thinking what you’re going to say. Most people never listen. Nor do they observe. You should be able to go into a room and when you come out, know everything that you saw there and not only that. If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling. Try that for practice.”
— Ernest Hemingway
My favorite stacking planters will be back in stock in a few days. I already own a set and love them. Beautiful and smartly designed.
I wish there was a behind the scenes for all the things I love. I imagine buying a product and then you could watch the story of its making? I would love that.

I am so grateful my kids are growing up in a world, here in Brooklyn, where they will be free to love whoever they want to love, without judgement. The Swiss country side, where I grew up, was not that open minded at the time.
Happy pride day everyone! Look out for team Tattly putting rainbows on anyone who will let them during the World Pride Parade!
Love is love!

If you can’t make one decision, make a different one. Generate some momentum. The act of making unrelated decisions can dislodge the one you’re stuck on.

One of my biggest advice to anyone starting their own company is to find a lawyer that you trust and like. For the past 13 years Jerald Tenenbaum has advised me through *everything* and by now I consider him a friend. So grateful! https://t.co/8k8kPY2E2m

Lawyers get a bad rep. That bums me out. I have been working with the same lawyer for the last 14 years and I don’t think I would be where I am today without him. I had a bit of a “I love my lawyer so much” gratitude wave come over me yesterday so I channeled it into a Twitter Thread.
Kyle’s additional response put the biggest smile on my face, it really shows what a good human my lawyer Jerald is.
“Don’t memorize your talk. Memorize your stories. Ten stories make a talk. Write yourself a simple cue card to remember each story’s name. Then tell us ten stories.”
If there is one person I would take speaking advice from, it’s Seth Godin.
“There is nothing more revealing than to see a thinking person walking, just as there is nothing more revealing than to see a walking person thinking… Walking and thinking are in a perpetual relationship that is based on trust.”
