my love of solange’s fashion is reaching a fever pitch.
I had never heard this rendition of “Time After Time” with Cyndi Lauper and Patti Labelle. It’s incredibly beautiful.

From IDEO’s internal rebranding project.
Ashley’s story at the beginning of this last episode of Semipermanent is incredibly touching and moving.
I also just love this theme of what and where home really is.
Love to Boston.
Boston is the closest thing to a hometown I have.
Finally watched “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” last night.
There were so many words of wisdom that Jiro shared, and his life philosophy on the day-to-day precision that he exercises.

There is so much to learn from his commitment to his craft and his life. Makes me wonder how rare it is for people to find the thing that they absolutely love and cannot imagine not doing.
It reminds me of a bit of Plato’s “myth of the metals” which was basically a lie that a politician should create so that everyone citizen feels contented with their position in the world and less apt to uprising. If we could all find exactly what it was we were best created to do, we could be as Jiro is — restless for perfection, but not restless for finding our purpose.
I think we all dream of knowing that we are doing exactly what we should be doing with our lives.
