I can’t stop smiling.
This resonates: “Fun is a feeling, not an activity.” Thank you Catherine Price.
What an incredibly fascinating talk by Lera Boroditsky on how language structure shapes thought! Highly recommend!
We closed out our CreativeMornings/NYC year with a conversation between two design legends, Debbie Millman and Stefan Sagmeister. I love Stefan’s orientation towards optimism and urging us to think longterm. Jump to the start of their conversation by clicking here and skipping over all the intros.

This couple is the most soothing content I watch these days on YouTube. Their son films them cooking and gardening. Delightfully slow. (And here is there Instagram account.)
Stay until the kids come on. They are so pure. Heart melts.
This is weird. And I love it. (The Avocado is my all-time favorite)
One Sec App has helped me become aware and control my Instagram addiction. Every time I try to open the app it prompts me to breathe deeply and asks “do you really want to open Instagram?” I close the app, every time. (You can set it up for any app or website)
I found 仮装大賞公式チャンネル on TikTok. Apparently “Masquerade” is one of the most popular TV shows produced by NTV Japan. These are all so beautifully weird. There’s more.
I had a pretty exciting week and met a bunch of super interesting humans this past Monday at an exclusively curated salon in SF. One of the fine humans at this gathering was Brett Perry: Dancer, Farmer, Educator and Producer. During one of his shares he explained how he started getting to know himself better by intentionally living life more with his non-dominant side. (Think doing things with your non-dominant hand first) Love this notion. Thank you you Brett. Also, I decided I want more dancer friends in my life.
Love this notion of looking at spaces we inhabit as having the power to heal. (I had the pleasure to meet Michael Murphy this past week and experience his thoughtful approach to his craft.)
