I just discovered the Marco Polo Video Chat App and I am intrigued. With my family and a lot of my friends living in different parts of the world, I often find it hard to stay in touch beyond just text and email. Marco Polo seems to have cracked this nut. You can talk/ aka record a video message when you’re on the go, between appointments, whenever it’s convenient for you. Your friend can watch in real time or later. Unlike other video apps, you don’t need to be live. It’s safe and private. So, that means, no likes, no comments. Dreamy!
This man is a hero.
This animated video describes the six universal Principles of Persuasion that have been scientifically proven to make you most effective as reported in Dr. Cialdini’s groundbreaking book, Influence.
Disillusioned with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to Pacific Beach. There, he undergoes a radical transformation into SLOMO, trading his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.
I like SLOMO. The world would be a better place if we paid more attention to what lights us up and follow that. Wholeheartedly follow that.
I know what I am doing with my 9 year old this weekend: a Cotton Ball Launcher.
I have shared this before, but just want to remind everyone that this sped up moon footage exists. This is the internet I am here for.
I thought I had a lot of plants until I saw this house tour of Summer Rayne Oakes. I thoroughly enjoy what she shares on Instagram and I just ordered her book How To Make A Plant Love You. Also, she taught me how to fight Fungus Gnats. An overall lovely human. Also, I think her parents did an incredible job naming her. So much respect.
I needed to hear this. I appreciate it Tara Brach so much. She has gotten me through some dark times and keeps reminding me to stay in my heart.
There are some real gems in this conversation between Russell Brand & Brené Brown.
This really got me thinking. Are people doing the best they can? I want to believe they do.
On my flight back to NYC on Saturday I got to watch The Green Book. What an incredibly moving and thought provoking movie.
This interactive art piece at the Mexican / US border wall is incredibly moving. It connects children and adults in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side. Way to bring light to an incredibly dark situation.
This is going to be a fun thing to try with my kids: How to Draw a 3D Optical Illusion of Your Hand!
If someone in your life doesn’t understand (economic) privilege, show them this video.
This movie, Logan’s Run, made such an impression on me as a kid. I guess I was about 14 the last time I saw it with my dad. Excited to watch it again and re-experience it with a grown-up-point-of-view.
