Bits and Pieces

From my bathroom stall at Whole Foods this week. 

I no longer feel guilty taking some time to read blogs, newspaper articles and magazines. Staying abreast of current cultural conversations informs my work, and more importantly, my humanity.

And I really like playing on the internet.

Here are a couple of pieces I found interesting this week.

Stop Taking Pictures of Homeless People

“If you want to make a statement about the state of public health care, mental health, affordable housing, or abuse, then do that. Spend time with people, talk to them, have an agenda and a message you formulate yourself and commit to it. That is interesting. Taking a picture of a dude passed out in a park isn’t telling; it’s annoying.”

For real.

Showroom vs. Sanctuary

I can’t begin to describe the impact this article has had on me. I’ve been struggling with the sometimes frivolous world where I make my living and my absolute passion for what I do.

Sharing Synesthesia with Kaitlyn and Matt Hova

I was fortunate enough to meet Kaitlyn and Matt at a party before they left for California. She discussed synesthesia and it was incredibly interesting learning about it and how it affects her music. It’s even cooler that Matt has developed a way to share in his wife’s super power.

Happy Friday!
