Somehow this week turned into a week of reflection for me. I found myself thinking a lot about what I want to achieve and how to get there. I spent many of my L rides to and from work mapping out brainwaves in a notebook to see what new ideas they might spark. Do you ever feel like you are on the cusp of a great idea but your brain hasn’t quite worked it out yet? I don’t think I’m going to leave my notebook at home until that eureka moment strikes.
Now for the good stuff I found online this week:
I love this guide about how to handle kid’s tough questions at a museum.
Smithsonian.com has a really interesting article on “The History and Psychology of Clowns Being Scary.” I had no idea clowns dated all the way back to 2500 BCE Egypt.
Textile designer Ritsuko Hirai finds balance between art and design. She says, “as an artist, there’s no end, nor limitation … and design tells me to focus and concentrate.” Her line about about living in a fantasy and being alive in the real world struck a chord in me.
