Happy Fourth.

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend. My friend David moves to LA on Saturday, so we're crossing items off his New York City bucket list: pastrami at Katz's, a trip to the Cloisters, rooftop fireworks on the 4th (weather permitting, of course).


I'll be back on Monday with a new POV; in the meantime, reading material for the weekend:
-The concept of home.
-Coffee Cups of the World.
-Reading lists inspired by different modes of transit.
-Tolstoy's macaroni and cheese / Vonnegut's spiked candy bars.

And this again, from George Saunders, because it's good to be reminded: "Do all the other things, the ambitious things — travel, get rich, get famous, innovate, lead, fall in love, make and lose fortunes, swim naked in wild jungle rivers...but as you do, to the extent that you can, err in the direction of kindness. Do those things that incline you toward the big questions, and avoid the things that would reduce you and make you trivial. That luminous part of you that exists beyond personality — your soul, if you will — is as bright and shining as any that has ever been. Bright as Shakespeare’s, bright as Gandhi’s, bright as Mother Teresa’s. Clear away everything that keeps you separate from this secret luminous place. Believe it exists, come to know it better, nurture it, share its fruits tirelessly."

Have a great one. Photos by Max Wanger.

What a fun weekend you have ahead of you! I love that you're crossing off his to do list before he leaves.

Those photos are so cool, I was going to ask where they're from! Of course they're Max's :)
