Hand Stamps

I love Andrea Lauren's hand-carved stamps!


Fear and Gratitude

“I cannot pretend I am without fear. But my predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved; I have been given much and I have given something in return; I have read and traveled and thought and written. I have had an intercourse with the world, the special intercourse of writers and readers. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.”
-Oliver Sacks

Buffer's Pay Gap

There is nothing I like more than a company that's honest about its failings. Okay, what I'd like more is for there to be less failing going on, at least when it comes to equality, but heck, honesty is the first step. Buffer has released a report about their growing gender pay gap. Now let's see them fix it.

Committed vs. Attached

I am inspired and intrigued by this one. I intuitively know there is a difference between commitment and attachment, but I don't know if I could describe it very well yet. How would you define the difference between being committed to something or attached to it?
