Inspiration! Roundup: Play Time, Collin van der Sluijs, Artists with Pockets, Moon Rotations, and More!

This Week's "I want to go to there": I spent the last weekend in nature reading books and dining with incredible people. I want to go back.

Play

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
― Fred Rogers

Also, play may not be the "work of adulthood", but it's pretty dang vital. Let's play!

Collin van der Sluijs

Super in love with the artwork of Collin van der Sluijs.


Pockets

If you pay attention to the feminist corners of the internet at all, you've probably heard a lot about pockets. Bragging about a dress with pockets, anger that pants have fake pockets, and a general cry for pockets! Please give us pockets! This article on how artists (including ones who happen to be women) need pockets is a great addition to the discourse.

It also reminds me of my grandpa, a high school physics and math teacher, who only bought shirts with pockets so he could always carry a pen and paper in case he needed to work out a sudden math problem. I never thought about artists doing the same thing, but we should!

Moon Rotations

There is something quite entrancing about watching a full rotation of the moon.


In Harm's Way

My friend sent me this video after I posted about the supreme mental discord of knowing there are acts of pure evil happening right next door and still going on with life and eating ice cream because I feel like it.
