I enjoyed this article the Atlantic. Something to think about...
Last week, a good friend sent me a link to an article in The New York Times Style Magazine entitled "How Japonisme Forever Changed the Course of Western Design". It was fascinating! Although I was familiar with various threads in this article, this was the first time I’ve seen them all woven together. It's a long read but one that is well while. Enjoy! (Thanks, BF!)
A friend just introduced me to the American folk pop duo Lily and Madeleine. They are sisters and they write and perform their own music. Oh, they have such lovely voices!
I'm a huge Sharon McMahon fan and I was so pleased to see this article about her in The Atlantic. Sharon is a former high school government and law teacher, and she uses her viral instagram account, @sharonsaysso, to educate the public about all things American government and democracy in a non-partisan way. She has certainly helped me better understand some of the current events happening in the USA. (In addition to being extremely knowledgable, she's also a hoot. The article describes her as having powerful golden-retriever energy.)
A dear friend keeps recommending interesting podcasts to follow. The latest one is Your Undivided Attention which explores the "incredible power that technology has over our lives – and how we can use it to catalyze a humane future." This one, their latest podcast, was especially interesting! If you are interested in how language is used, politically or otherwise, then this is for you.
I'm stepping back from social media so this is where I share links that I think others might enjoy. They will rarely be related to photography though!
