Five Rules of Being a Grown-Up

1 Comment

You must not have anything wrong with you, or anything different about you.

If you have something wrong or different about you, you really need to correct it. You need to be able to pass under all circumstances.

If you can’t correct it, or change it in any way, you should just pretend that you have. It’s not a problem anymore. Good news!

If you can’t even pretend not to have corrected the situation, you should just not show up, because it’s very painful for the rest of us to see you in your current condition.

If you’re going to insist on showing up, you should at least have the decency to be ashamed.

Hold Your Love

1 Share

“The right person will know how to hold your love. The right person will choose you just as deeply as you choose them. You will not have to quiet the way you care, you will never feel like you are too much. You will not have to beg for the love you deserve. One day, you will be met where you are. One day, you will be someone’s favorite thing, and you will not be confused you will not feel like you are fighting for someone who isn’t fighting for you. One day, you will understand that it never mattered how tightly you held on to the wrong people, how intensely you tried, because the right people were always going to find you. The right people were always going to stay.”

Our Real Work

2 Shares

“It may be that when we no longer know what to do we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
Wendell Berry

Looom for iOS makes animating like playing a musical instrument, now with major update

1 Comment

It's exactly how musicians would want to think about animation. Time loops, free or bpm-synced, and you explore visual rhythm through lines, shapes, colors, and improvisatory gestural doodles. Looom is a total gem of an app - and this summer's update transforms it into a serious and approachable pro tool.
