Your sweet spot…

February 27th, 2014

I haven’t written here in so long and it’s time to blow this site up and start a-new (with an archive just in case ;))

In the meantime, I thought you’d like this doodle of Dave Pollard‘s work:

I keep hearing people talk about their “work” and figured I should share Dave’s Venn diagram on finding “your sweet spot” (drawn quickly by me).

I especially like the purpose part being about what the world needs. It’s much easier to focus on than “economics” and money etc usually follows when you truly are working to purpose.

Hope it inspires you today too.

Tx Maya & Tip for both bringing it back to my attention this last week

I am totally inspired by Japanese artist Sachiko Abe‘s performance ‘Cut Paper’.

I feel like I’m watching a visual fairytale with echoes of Rapunzel.

Wangari Maathai & The Hummingbird

September 27th, 2011

Wangari Maathai died today.
I heard her speak in 2005 at the Clinton Global Initiative. She was a lady who planted trees.
Like Jonny Appleseed. Or the man who planted trees. She was certainly a hummingbird.
A special woman who’s best was pretty darn impressive.
Thank you Wangari. Thank you. The world thanks you.

ps thanks cathryn for letting me know

Hubert Duprat Jewelled Cocoons

September 23rd, 2011

Hubert Duprat has “collaborated” with aquatic caddis fly larvae, gold and some semi precious stones to create some of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a while:

The flies use the metals to make their cocoons.
Nature is beautiful!
