Being Bored

I quite enjoyed this piece on the value of being bored - something that I have known for a long time, but still struggle with.

"In 2018, it is easy and common to be tired, depressed, burnt out, dulled, vibrating with mundane panic, desperate for the sweet release of death, etc. But to be peacefully understimulated with no relief in sight is almost impossible."

Giants Among Us

What's not to love about Guillaume Chiron's collages of giant people?


Have a Little Faith

This series of videos, called Have a Little Faith, are amazing! Love this one on forgiveness.
"I really believe that when someone does us harm we are connected to that mistreatment like a chain... Maybe retaliation or holding onto the anger about the harm done to me doesn't really combat evil. Maybe it feeds it... So what if forgiveness, rather than being a pansy way of saying 'it's all okay' is actually a way of wielding bolt cutters and snapping the chain that links us."
-Nadia Bolz-Weber

The Designers

I love the use of space in this short film by Rohan McDonald - visual space and auditory space.

Cats in Bars

Arna Miller has designed a series of matchboxes featuring cats living it up in a bar. It's hilarious. (And no, they aren't just knocking glasses on the ground.)
