Coming soon … a YouTube channel and a Ustream channel, where I also hope to host an interactive show. I’ll keep you posted!
It’s obvious that liking something on Facebook is a conscious act. And the post would not get liked, publicly at least, without that act.
However I think it’s less obvious that liking your life is a conscious act. Especially liking as many moments of it as possible. And it seems quite possible that you won’t like your life as much without those conscious acts of liking.
Of course more goes into enjoying your life than just consciously liking it. Things like sleep, exercise, diet, friendships, family, work, and community. The list could go on and on. But the act of consciously liking your life seems just as important as any of those other things. Maybe more so.
As you may know, one of my projects is Variety People. I just posted a short blurb there about the links between relaxation and productivity. You can post things about variety there too. It’s an open blog. Sort of an experiment!
I really like this iPhone journaling app called Everyday.me. It’s visually appealing and well-organized. It’s intuitive. And the best part is the tags. You can tag every journal entry with multiple tags. So then you can also later filter your posts by tags. I’m using it for journaling and also to keep track of things that I’ve done, thought or felt by tagging them.
If you love creativity, if you love culture, if you love intelligence, if you love life, you will probably love this documentary. Oh, and the architecture is exquisite too. Thank you Norman Foster.
Later, on 2/12/2013 …
I’ve watched this three times now. For me, it’s an astonishing, beautiful film.
It’s well-crafted, well-written, well-edited, well-photographed and well-narrated. You get a sense of Norman, and the arc of his career. But it’s more than just about an architect. It’s about being a human being. And it’s about humans working together.
The icing on the cake is the music. This wonderful original score, written by Joan Valent, is integrated throughout the film. But his music near the end, that carries through the credits, had me in tears.
