“You can still learn about science, but it’s not like mixing things together”
— Beatrix, age 11, quoted in the Star Tribune about one of her favorite places. A magical natural place. Unfortunately, it lost its funding and is closing. We took her last weekend to say goodbye.
Steve Jobs, internal Apple meeting, introducing Think Different campaign
“We’ve got to let people know who Apple is, and why it’s still relevant in this world.”
All marketing should be thus.
I’m only about 30 pages in but The Lessons of History should be pre-requisite reading for every history class.
How to back up your Tumblr and Twitter archives. (Via Austin Kleon’s always excellent newsletter.)
FWIW, all of my posts from my old Tumblr, The Random Post, are imported here. I backed up Minimal Mac, my other Tumblr site, in a more lasting way — it became a book.
Make cleanliness a part of learning and living, and the home and the community will follow. (Article sent to me by my friend Steve Best.)
It’s World Mental Health Day today. An issue very near and important to me.
I’ve written about this many times before. I am a mental illness survivor. I’ve lost some of my closest friends to suicide. My eldest child is currently institutionalized. I even serve on the board of a mental health and wellness organization.
So, as you can imagine, this is a day of many mixed emotions for me. That said, the one that I keep coming back to is hope. I am full of hope that those that are suffering can find healing. Those that have been lost can leave lessons for those considering leaving. Those who think there is no help will find that there has never been more. Finally, I have hope that days like today will spread a little more of this hope as we confront, discuss, and step out of the shadows of mental illness.
Be help. Be hope.
