New Views

Photo from HERE

I'm so SO excited about my new eyeglass frames.  I went to my neighborhood optical boutique Gogosha with the intent of purchasing some sensible ones, but quickly realized that was BORING.

I almost got some with a paint splatter effect, but Rudy, my awesome style consultant, and Mr. W thought that was a little...much.  


In the end I went with some frames by Kirk Originals - a subtle cat eye in a sparkly (as in glitter explosion) red.  

Sensible?  No, but so much more me. XO

Life lessons from Jiro

Over the weekend, I was finally able to watch "Jiro Dreams of Sushi."

In addition to adding a meal at his restaurant to my culinary bucket list, watching it had the unexpected consequences of sadness and anxiety which I'm still feeling this morning.

My feelings are wrapped up in the inevitability of mortality, the transformative power of true empathy, responding to one's true calling and optimism.  Lots to think about!

Happy Monday everyone - here's to hoping we each have joy in dreaming of our life's work.  XOXO
