New newsletter platform this week called Revue! Let me know what you think. It’s a little more intuitive than MailChimp and Squarespace and I don’t need all that horsepower.
This week’s High Five is heavy on video content and light on jibber jabber. These moving pictures all had an impact on me this week and I hope they resonate with you. Speaking of movies - I saw The Revenant a few days ago. It would have been better as a silent film, in my view, and that’s not a joke. It’s very visually stunning and DiCaprio’s moans don’t add much.
As you know, meditation has been a big theme for me in 2016. And I’ve heard from some of you that you are developing practices, too. The meat-eaters will groan but I found Rich Roll’s mindfulness journey
to be pretty instructive. What’s working for you? I’d love to hear from you at email@example.com and I’m happy to share “best practices” with the list.
Perspective. I hope you don’t have to fall 50 feet from a tree to get it. This video was a treat because Nalini is a relative
and a remarkable person and we’re very glad she’s well. She’s always been wise but … well … listen to her and think about your own bumps and bruises and, perhaps, re-frame them. What does not destroy you …
Maybe you’ve seen the Haka performed before a rugby match featuring New Zealand’s All Blacks. Or you’ve been over at my house when I’ve just finished washing a mountain of dishes and one of the girls ambles toward the kitchen with another dirty plate. In any case, I’m betting you’ve not seen one done at a wedding. My buddy Z sent me this video earlier in the week
and it was pretty stirring. If you’re thinking about getting married, do your guests a favor and sub out the Electric Slide for this war dance.
The East Coast got socked in with snow last weekend! New York City issued a travel ban. Casey Neistat
had an interesting response.
And, finally, some music to soundtrack your weekend by the Savages
. There’s a line in here - “I understand the urgency of life” - that has been bouncing around my head since I heard it. I’m thinking about this urgency as a rogue grey hair shoots out of my left eyebrow.
Have a great weekend,
