The Art of Disappearing

Really enjoying it starting 1:19.

The Wine Not the Label

I keep cracking up about this. One of my favorite Schitt’s Creek scenes.

How to Do Nothing

I enjoyed this talk. In her first book, How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, multi-disciplinary artist and writer Jenny Odell argues that taking control of our attention from the capitalist forces determined to monetize it and reconnecting with the world around us is a critical form of resistance.

Always coming back to this one.

Stunning. Thank you for your gift, Sadeck Waff.

Dear White Parents

Dear White Parents offers an intimate view of enlightening, sometimes uncomfortable, family discussions focused on parents helping their children understand racism through current events and sharing their own stories about how they first became aware of racism.

The website Dear White Parents is a remarkable resource to help us raise an anti-racist generation. Have a look at the curated library of age-driven resources and discussion guides, as well as anti-racism workshops and discussions. I appreciate the work that went into this.

Rewiring for Happiness and Freedom

My heart needed to hear this beautiful lecture today. I can’t say it enough but Tara Brach is a national treasure. So grateful my friend Maria introduced me to her work when I was going through a hard time 6 years ago. Her meditations and talks are grounding and expansive.

Confidence is Overrated

I love Debbie Millman.

Finding Your Hammer

Adam Robinson shares some wonderful nuggets of wisdom in this DO Lectures talk from 2017. My favorite: “In any interaction, create fun and delight for the other person with enthusiasm!” And the notion of ‘rehearsing your best self’ every day.

I am writing this post, with my bare feet firmly planted on grass, outside a Swiss farmhouse where I currently spend some vacation time. This documentary blew my mind and most likely explains why I have been craving so much time in nature, touching and being in close connection to soil.

Bike Riding the Rails

I agree with Kottke, definitely filing this under “Things I Definitely Want to Do Sometime”: riding electric-assist railbikes through a California redwood forest.
