It’s a coin toss…

I can't remember where I first heard the following quote: “When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you, but because, in that brief moment with the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you're hoping for.” I can't think of a phrase that better applies to my life right now. Kicked out of a nest I've relied on, my proverbial coin is in the air and...

in memoriam

It's fitting that, in celebration of his life, many outlets have honored Jim Henson in his death this week.My grandmother passed away just a few short days ago.And in doing so, as is often the case, she has left behind many people who are now reflecting on their own mortality and familial bonds and the essence of time and goodness and meaning. Such is my state.And I'm not entirely sure why, but I took some form...

Enough Romance, Already!

Do you ever feel like your experiences - your daily life - just aren't as romantic as you expected life to be?Like the act of living, of creating, of working is just not nearly as beautiful in real life as it is in your head? Yeah, I do that, too. And Donald Miller was speaking directly to us this morning.He  called his post "Why You Should Write in a Closet" and he absolutely crushed my visions of...

How did I miss this video?

I'm not sure how I missed this when it came out.Like a lot of designers, I'm fascinated by Jessica Hische and her pretty incredible momentum.This is a very nice little video series and Jessica's might be the best of the bunch.Bonus points for keeping it clean, Jessica!...

MUSIC MONDAYS: The Civil Wars

Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack.Is it just me or is the new Civil Wars just not the same?There was something so incredible about Barton Hollow. There was so much vibe. Such simpatico.The duo's parting of ways was fairly public. And then this album came out.I'm guessing I would have loved it had it not followed Barton Hollow.But it did.And it's just not the same.I have my theories as to what happened, but it's...

removing clutter to grow

I just had lunch with a friend. You might know him (or know of him). You might not.That doesn't matter.Even though we only live a few blocks apart, it's been a while since we've last spoken. We were having one of those where are we heading? kind of discussions. The air of transition is pretty thick in both of our lives; it's the reason we've not been connected lately.Though he might be reticent to say it,...
