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!

One Breath Around The World

What a stunning short film.

Ludovico Einaudi

I recently asked on Instagram about pianist recommendations. Ludovico Einaudi was one of the many recommendations I received. This concert recording at The Royal Albert Hall is absolutely fantastic.

Moving the Giants – An Urgent Plan to Save the Planet

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 world is full of super inspiring, creative humans.

Pocket Miroir Projector

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…

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.

Ace of Cups | I Feel Good


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.

The Comeback of A Denim Company

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.

New York City in 1911

How delightful is this old film of New York City in the year 1911. My kids and I just watched this in amazement.
