Friday Edition!

Quote of the Day:

"Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present, and that takes practice, but we don't have to do anything else. We don't have to advise, or coach, or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and listen." --Margaret J. Wheatley; writer, consultant

Art News:

I will be uploading new art today, so over the course of the weekend, I'll post it here, so as to not swamp people. I have a particular favorite in this batch, I wonder if others will feel the same way?

Current Projects:

I may not have to go help friends paint, as they may have hired someone to do it! So I am faced with an unexpectedly free weekend! I hope to spend some time with roho, and maybe get some artistic painting done.

Nifty things:

The World's Wildest Wearable Gadgets -- This is really cool, but really weird to me as well. There are 16 devices in the article, the disposable nail watch is the first one I saw. "Pardon me, I must check my thumbnail for the time." How strange! (Link courtesy of steelhelix)

Yoga on the Job -- Our culture is busy busy busy, always cramming more activities into our day, and as a result, we don't take as good care of ourselves (or at least, I don't). Aches and pains begin to accumulate, and we don't have time to do more than grab a handful of ibuprofren and keep on trucking. This article has some simple yoga exercises that can be done at a desk while surfing the web to help alleviate some of the muscle pressures caused by the average day job. VERY neat!

Have a great day, and TGIF!
