The film Moving the Giants profiles David Milarch, an arborist from central Michigan. In 1991, Milarch had a near death experience that inspired a personal quest – to archive the genetics of the world’s largest trees before they’re gone and to replant global forests to fight climate change.
I was in the room when Gabby Rivera gave this talk. I was sitting in first row and feeling my heart opening listening to her story. 11mins well spent.
The way to my heart is paved with cheese. So happy for this brief history of cheese find.
Last week, while in San Francisco, I had the unexpected pleasure to meet contemporary American artist Pae White. Her work is stunning.
The world is full of super inspiring, creative humans.
While visiting my friend in California last week I got to experience this pocket projector by miroir. I would have never thought such a tiny projector could be so powerful. Projecting a movie on my bedroom ceiling sounds pretty cool…
The Adobe Creative Residency is currently taking applications until February 7th. It’s the *coolest* project Adobe has ever put together! I wish I could apply! Maybe you can?
An exploration of the basic questions for anyone attempting to do business in a conscious way. Is it possible to do business, make a profit, act in truth and integrity and be of genuine service all at once? In his presentation Ram Dass depthfully sheds light and answers.
Last week, during my solo birthday trip to New Mexico, I was introduced to the work of Ram Dass. What a beautiful world it has opened up.
From 1967 to 1972, the Ace of Cups were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution, the first ever all female rock band. They shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead, and were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival.
Despite eliciting music industry interest for their exceptional songs, sublime harmonies and exuberant live performances, the Ace of Cups never got the chance to make a record… until now.
Check out their music. Love these ladies so much.
I admire how David and Clare Hieatt show up in this world. I respect their mission to revive a jeans town in Wales with their jeans company called Hiut Denim. Love how they are highlighting their employees and their strengths and loves in this feature.
They are also the forces behind my favorite tiny conference, called the Do Lectures.
I have a Monstera plant that is growing a bit unruly. So I went to YouTube for help and found the above video! I love the internet so much!
I was lucky enough to experience this talk here in NYC, a few weeks ago, at a TED Salon. I walked away completely mesmerized by this glimpse into a world I didn’t even know existed. Thank you Alex Rosenthal for lifting the veil on one of the world’s most complex puzzle hunts, the MIT Mystery Hunt.
How delightful is this old film of New York City in the year 1911. My kids and I just watched this in amazement.
Slowed down footage to a natural rate and added in sound for ambiance. This film was taken by the Swedish company Svenska Biografteatern on a trip to America.
Jocelyn is a dear friend of mine and the force behind the fantastic podcast Hurry Slowly, as well the editor of one of my favorite newsletters. She is a thoughtful, smart, grounded and heart-forward human.
And I think she is onto something, pointing out, how we’re in the grip of a more, better, faster mentality that drains our energy and makes us feel like we’re never doing enough. Her 4 week course advocates for a new way of working — a heart-centered approach to productivity that’s nurturing, intentional, and inspiring.
It starts January 19th and is designed as a 4-week course, everyone starting at the same time. This allows Jocelyn to support you with live Q&As every week as you integrate the concepts. The course consists of 12 video lessons form the core of RESET — each lesson is about 15-20 minutes long. In total, watching all the videos takes just under 4 hours. Additional materials, like the “reset rituals,” are self-paced so it’s all about how much you want to put into the course.
I am signing up. I am ready for a cosmic tune-up!

Two weeks ago I had the wonderful pleasure to sit next to Elizabeth Streb at a dinner party. She told me she was an extreme action specialist who flies. I couldn’t help but tilt my head to the side and say “Tell me more!” Luck has it, she talked about her quest of defying gravity in this wonderful TED talk.
What an incredible woman! Check out her company Streb.
