squeamish?

Please go read this and come back and tell me: Do you find this inspirational? Horrifying? Absurd? I'd like to hear your thoughts on this intersection of fashion, art, and body modification....

connection in the age of brevity

I intended to simply post a link to this short read, but I think there's some deep irony in that in which I can't abide.The questions were short and the answers nearly as short. And it ended with this: Why are your responses so brief? If I had worked less diligently on them, they would have been longer. It's a play on Blaise Pascal's “I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time...

marbin

It was the oddest thing. I was having daddy-daughter dinner downtown last night and had decided to succumb to the beauty of Florida winters and chose a sidewalk table. As dinner ended, some familiar melodies started drifting our way. We detoured on our walk home to explore and saw a couple of guys cranking out some seriously nice gypsy jazz - just a guitar and soprano saxophone playing some of my favorites. Stella By Starlight, Autumn...

ditch the mallet

There is a wonderful story of a group of American car executives who went to Japan to see a Japanese assembly line. At the end of the line, the doors were put on the hinges, the same as in America. But something was missing. In the United States, a line worker would take a rubber mallet and tap the edges of the door to ensure that it fit perfectly. In Japan, that job didn't seem...

hand-deliver

If you're reading this, it's likely that you already appreciate taking the more personal route. The extra step of the handwritten versus electronic. The call versus text. The visit versus call. So why not hand-deliver? Getting mail is nice, but a visit from the host is even better. Even when geography and scheduled just don't permit the host to stop by, there's still an incredible experience in having an invitation hand-delivered. It harkens to the days of ...

i need a videographer

I had an absolute epiphany this week. An idea I think might change the industry.And I need help.I need a wedding videographer who'd be willing to work with me on a small project for a staged wedding invitation that involves video. The video itself won't be elaborate, but I'm looking for someone who doesn't want to be lumped in with the rest of the industry. I need someone who's edgy and a little weird. And...

what makes you rise up?

My friends are often a great source of delight.Several friends have been encouraging me to read Simon Sinek's Start With Why and, while it's on my list, it hadn't reached the top until yesterday. My friend Chrissanne spoke for a group of which I'm a member about social media from the framework of Sinek's book. It was a very well-conceived presentation that was timely for this audience. I'm sure there was a ton to take from it,...

a little news

Though I'm usually pretty candid here, it's not often that I share much of my personal life.I wanted to pause for a second to share a secret I've been keeping for a few months.That's our three-year-old holding up her little brother's first set of PJs.We found out yesterday that our second little one - due this summer - is a boy!(I had dropped a hint or two, including the current banner image at a fine press'...
