2015 Inspiration

Cochin, Kerala

Cochin, Kerala

A few of the people and things that kept me awed and amazed in this past year (while acknowledging that they aren't all new to 2015).

This song.

And this one, by Chance the Rapper, that's a favorite of mine and my kids.

Emily Shur's Japan series, this photo essay by Greg Kahn and this book by Sam Abell.

William Finnegan's Barbarian Days and Patti Smith's M Train.  

This can't-miss-always-perfect cake.

This Teju Cole column.

This live performance.

These two

These walls and this tree.

Always, this podcast, and sometimes this one.

And still thinking about this essay and this John Cleese talk on creativity.

Here's to a happy and challenging 2016.
