The Best Way to Face Difficult Times

Mummenschanz Exotic Mime

I was reminded of this gem today. Mummenschanz is pure delight.

Single Sheet of Paper Zine

I love this so much.

“My Little Piece of Privacy”

This made me laugh: To stop passersby from peeping into his workshop, Niklas Roy strung up a small white, *motorized* lace curtain in his window. Outside movement triggers a motor to position the thin fabric in front of the person attempting to look inside. Funny.

DO Wales

I have attended three DO Lectures and each one made my heart and brain expand. It’s a remarkable gathering; thoughtful, heartfelt, pure, grounded. While this video about DO comes close, it’s impossible to convey the magic of attending. If you ever have the luxury of taking a few days off and travel to Wales, put DO on your radar.

This is my DO talk from 2 years ago. It’s personal. And it was *very* hot in that barn.

This is How I Organize my Phone

Amit Gupta

I had tea with Amit last week and it reminded me of his heartfelt XOXO talk from 2015. It will rip your heart wide open.

YelloPain: My Vote Dont Count

Thank you Kottke, for finding this: In his new music video, My Vote Dont Count, rapper YelloPain provides an excellent 4-minute summary in the sprit of Schoolhouse Rock of the importance of voting, particularly in midterm elections and with a focus on Congress and state legislatures.


My latest obsession: Kodo – Japanese Drummers. I have their albums on repeat on Spotify. Talk about energizing. I am determined to see them perform live.

The Science of the Soul

As someone who grew up with a dad who did past-life regressions in our living room on a regular basis I reveled in this Science of the Soul piece.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor”

The first and last time Mister Rogers sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” on TV. My heart!

Lenny Kravitz – Again

I have rediscovered Again by Lenny Kravitz. Playing on repeat. So good.

Helicopter Install of Power Line Marker Balls

I will never look at those Power Line Marker Balls the same way again.


The Zero Waste Town

This video on How to Make Popcorn Using a Blow Torch & Hair Dryer is pure delight. Kudos to the creative duo of Zita Bernet and Rafael Sommerhalder.

Fantastic Fungi

That’s the trailer for Fantastic Fungi, a feature-length documentary about the worldwide network of mushrooms & mycelium that thrives beneath our feet. I am beyond intrigued and am a complete mushroom aficionado.
