- "The Moral Bucket List" by David Brooks via The New York Times. A good read for anyone who has ever wondered what they are doing with their life. So for everyone.
- Have you seen Design Sponge's "Dispatches from Japan" this week? Beautiful, beautiful photography by Ayumi Horie. The nighttime shots of flowering trees from Days 1 and 4 took my breath away.
- Speaking of photography, my esteemed gal pal Tessa Sollway has started sharing her photographs of the people and places she sees in and around Baltimore. Keep an eye on her - her photos tell the most amazing stories. That's her photo of my cat Shirley above.
- I've always loved Alyssa Dennis' dreamy architectural drawings and am so happy that she has a SOLO show at White Walls in San Francisco. A lot of times, my own dreams at night center around interior spaces and architecture, and it's exciting for me to look at her own perspectives of space.
- Another New Yorker article (yes, that's three mentions in two consecutive posts and maybe I should get a subscription) - but I could not stop reading "Moving to Mars" by Tom Kizzia. As much as NASA's Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation is intended to prepare for human exploration of Mars, its kind of an awesome read on human behavior and how to get along with your fellow human beings. I also love how the smarty-pants test subjects at HI-SEAS prioritized energy consumption (good call on making sure the bathroom fan kept running).
On the agenda this weekend: lots of quality time with my favorite ladies, duckpin bowling, and maybe even a pottery class. Hope yours is fun.
