Trash Compactor

This Trash Compactor made me look. We had a similar garbage can as a kid growing up in Switzerland. They became a thing once you had to pay for each bag of garbage you put outside. Also, garbage pickup was only once a week! Imagine that, New Yorkers!

How Frustration Can Make Us More Creative

Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert is my all-time favorite. It’s my go to when I need grounding and centering. I had *no* idea what happened leading up to the concert. As he arrived at the concert hall he noticed that the piano was out of tune. He was livid and said he couldn’t play. But he had empathy for the organizers and decided to conquer the challenge. Absolutely inspiring. He flipped a seemingly impossible situation. AIt became the most successful solo jazz album in history! Wonderful!
