Winter made a comeback this week, at least here in Finland. It was kind of fun, but I’m that crazy person who loves winter. We made a snowman (named, suprise suprise, Olaf) who melted away already and I didn’t even manage to take a picture. Oh well, next time then. For the record, I totally believe takatalvi is still ahead of us. I became Finnish like that :D
Anyways, I thought I will continue where I left off last week and share some more inspiration and food for thought.
What do you do if you want to see sunlight all times of the day? You build a house made of re-purposed windows. At least this is what Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz did. $500 and countless bowls of rice and beans they are living a dream.
This is pretty funny. A drinking dog, a simplest thing in the world. Until someone decides to put the process in slow-mo. Human tongue is not able to do this at all. The footage of this beautiful Alsatian drinking is from a longer documentary called The Secret Life of Dogs.
A really great article about our preoccupation with safety and how it has stripped childhood of independence, risk taking, and discovery—without making it safer. A new kind of playground points to a better solution- make sure you watch the video in the article! So great.
And starting a journal. After a meeting with a friend this week I decided to start a gratitude journal. Finally. Just scribble down 3 things I’m grateful for, each morning. That’s it.
