Words
“Words are events, they do things, change things. They transform both speaker and hearer; they feed energy back and forth and amplify it. They feed understanding or emotion back and forth and amplify it.”
-Ursula K. Le Guin

Pejac's Art

Pejac's art is dark and captivating.


Kindness

“Err in the direction of kindness.”
— George Saunders

I have been working on this more lately. It's pretty easy to err in the direction of protectionism or defensiveness or laziness. But what happens when we err in the direction of kindness?

Leftover Women

This video about China's "leftover women" (unmarried after the age of 25) is inspiring and heartbreaking.


Electronic Gold Stars

The Everyday Calendar is so cool! Pick something you want to do every day (meditate? Exercise? Say no? Go to bed at a reasonable hour?) and every day you do it, press that day's button. Seeing the board light up is a beautiful and simple motivation.

Andy Gilmore Geometric Art

I could stare at Andy Gilmore's geometric art for ages.
