A beautiful reminder.
I am so excited about this project. It’s completely audacious. I can’t wIt to see what images we get.
Really enjoyed this. Big dreams, the sea and a boat. What could go wrong?
Amen to this. Just. Stay, Away.

I have had a good deal of experience with women in power, mainly white women. And it has often been disappointing. Judges, CEOs, lawyers, bankers. I see among them an identification with the aggressor that creates exactly these kinds of situations. I hope we can move past that. Become better humans. I know how hard it is to work in a traditionally male-dominated field, but mimicking what we stereotypically think of as bad-boss behavior serves no one. As this article shows, that includes the girlboss herself.
My son and I feel like we have a neighborhood full of friends - our doormen, the super next door, the women at the grocery check-out, the polyglot who works selling coffee in the bodega, the owner of the laundromat who offered to let my son do his homework there when I had to go back to the office during Covid. I feel like there are many eyes on him, helping to keep him safe. And he feels that care and protection as we make our rounds on the block.
An interesting perspective. I think it's very close to the spirit which philosophy - if any - works for each one of us. Amorality works for this writer and sharing his views is satisfying to him. But I wouldn't begrudge someone else their morality, religion, or agnosticism. What resonates for us, works for us, I think, is for each one of us to decide.
Such a great perspective on not just preserving indigenous culture, but understanding how it can help save our earth.
I like Olivia’s music a lot - what I got from this piece is an empathic view of girls today by an excellent writer. Sour rocks, but there’s pain behind the music, tender love, sharp wit; all the notebook doodles that show so much more going on in the minds and hearts of girls than the heart shapes floating over their lowercase i’s.
Great stuff in here. I never thought about how we are wired for survival, not happiness. Boom.
Great article. Fear is such a powerful force. I don’t have particular fear about the virus but I worry about my distracted kid crossing Third Avenue, about a bus smashing into outdoor dining. There are places I see extreme danger where other people don’t. So if vaxxed people still want to wear a face shield I feel them. And people who are hesitant about vaccines hopefully feel more secure now that so many folks have had it. But I agree with this article that their neuroses in this instance can harm others, especially children who desperately need a return to life. My son’s progressive school just went back full time this week. It was costly to families trying to work and to kids who became anxious and even agoraphobic.
Excellent piece. All rings true.
I really believe this to be true. And it’s affirming that we can shed some of the traits that don’t serve us well. In acting we become.
I think for many people once they try these modalities and they work for them, they move past any “stages” and into acceptance. These practices spread because they work for people. I remember trying to convince my doctor that acupuncture helped me stay pregnant. He would not entertain it. Then a rival clinic started a study on its benefits. Then he got interested. Skeptics have their place. I prefer living as a curious optimist.
A great list with solid advice.
I think this can be taken for what it is - a highlight of one dimension of success at work. And it’s a good one.
