clients and coworkers awoke from holiday hibernation and are emailing me all at once today.
but I’ll leave you with some finds:

– revisited Bembe this weekend. went with Annie in August of 2010 for one of the best nights of dancing, and yeah, it’s still just as good and crowded and sweaty.
– all the items in Beyonce’s 7/11 video are from Bushwick (the search was prompted by my tweet today)
– in case you want to read Joan Didion’s essay about leaving New York City that I mentioned in this post, you can find a full text here.
– not gonna lie, molly yeh’s wedding post that just makes you want to hug her so hard.
– a friend shared an article with me about Louis CK’s lesson about getting things done at work:

…the moment when you panic — means you’re about to figure it out. That means you let go to what you know and you’re about to grab onto a new thing that you didn’t know yet.

– in honor of the one and only T.S. Eliot, who passed away on yesterday’s date 50 years ago: some quotes and especially:

“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.”
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Music:
I was asked to put together a reggae playlist for a party, and kind of thought Antenna was an interesting remix
On repeat right now:
– John Legend- The Beginning… (mostly for the first 11 seconds of the song)
– Thao- When We Swam (mostly for the “open your hips to me” part)
– Drake- 0 To 100/The Catch Up
– Emeli Sandé- Clown (mostly because i need to clear the way for my inevitable “crash landing”)
– Trampled by Turtles- Alone (mostly for the banjo picking, and for what happens at 2:55ish)
– yeah, and Sam Smith every day.

    Funny, that Louis CK article actually turns out to be more about Carol Dweck, whose book MINDSET I just read over the holidays. You might like it. I really did, and I hope to blog about it in the near future.
