I'm on a let's build/make better places kick. Stumbled upon a @adamstones quote for today. Seems fitting.
A quote from Holding Space pod by Dr. Cassidy Freitas. I was playing around with the colour palette of navy blue, grey and light pink. Don’t know if it’s really working. Something to explore more.
I can map out periods of my life based on how I felt when I was reading a particular book.
I am a boring person and I wish more of us would embrace boring. After all may you live in interesting times was a curse not a blessing. May you live in boring times. You’re welcome
I did a couple of quotes about light and dark because in this day and age we are so happy to dismiss each other. Instead of using concepts like privilege as a tool to learn and demonstrate vulnerabilities they can be used to shut people down and invalidate them. I don’t need to awkwardly disclose things to be at the table, especially if that table is the Internet. I am a human and I’ve struggled and suffered. I have lots of really lucky things in my life including categories of privilege we ignore like that I have a respectable accent. It’s about nuance and empathy. It’s about common humanity. If we live in a space of sides and exclusion then we’re in trouble — and if you haven’t noticed the world on fire thing we are deeply deeply in trouble. I think a better world starts with we and us, all of us. It starts with kindness and saying hey humans suffer and you can take that suffering and learn from it. It starts with kindness and care and love. So let’s make generous assumptions about each other and remember that it’s hard to hate people close us.
A quote from Elizabeth Gilbert on the TED Interview. I don’t really buy the creative mysticism but I really like her ideas and her work.
She writes good stuff.
Alex Kerr writes lovely things about Japan.
A great quote from the Every Day Therapy podcast.
More playing around with circles.
The two quotes I've had the most doubts about the design of have turned out really well. Not sure what that says.
Not sure whether this works or not.
I like this a bit better.
What do we need more of?
Keep going even when it’s hard.
