Some inspiring things
1. In Praise of the Quiet Life led me to this inspiring talk by Alain de Botton.
2. Mike Posner spent a week in total isolation. He reads journal excerpts from that week on his podcast, What Does This All Mean?
3. Loving the haunting music of Hildur Guðnadóttir. The magic of just one cello. Amazing.
4. Speaking of cello music, this Yo-Yo Ma performance at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert is a must-watch. Halfway through the performance the maestro offers some advice on how we can best learn things.
5. Alex Honnold climbs mountains without a harness. He is a superhero.
6. 30-day yoga practice with Adriene. I'm doing it, albeit inconsistently.
7. I just became a patron of Humans of New York. Brandon Stanton is doing very important work by documenting the stories of random, ordinary human beings. He is bringing power to the people.
8. Currently reading: "The Vegetarian" by Han Kang. Terrifying book, but also beautiful...
9. Quote to think about: "The only wrong way to do a day is to believe that there's a right way to do a day. It's to waste your time worrying if you're doing it right. That's the only wrong way." - Mike Posner
