something

think about this.

ZADY has a brief bio on Marisa Haskell, whose jewelry line is a ‘lil bit rock ‘n roll, modern lux, and beach aesthetic (according to her website).  Whatever style(s) you wanna call it, I think her line is beautiful.  

Anyhoo, this ZADY article ended with a few words that I’d love to apply to ALL my passion pursuits:

"Marisa sticks to her ideals: use everything, waste nothing, make it by hand.”

Again, that’s:

USE EVERYTHING.  WASTE NOTHING.  MAKE IT BY HAND. 

Brilliant.

i wouldn’t think to pair these jackets together, but these colors get along bluetifully.  I really like that extra shot of olive green that says, “Hello!  I’m here to keep life interesting!”

Beginners 

Written and Directed by Mike Mills 

I saw this the other day.  I really liked it.  It was about love and truth in many contexts. Beginning any endeavor, especially one where you commit to living a life with love and honesty, is extremely difficult, but, oh, so worth it.  So, is this movie.

Enjoy.

PS There’s a lot of neat sketches, drawings, and other forms of art in the film.  And, it’s narrated.  Both plusses in my book.

PPS The soundtrack is lovely, as well.
