    DO: go to bed an hour early and read. I have two problems: 1) I never seem to get enough sleep, and 2) I never have enough time to read as much as I’d like. Rather than continue letting this bother me, I’ve begun a little experiment. An hour earlier than I typically would, I (…) Read more

    I love this video by Ben Wu and David Usui of Lost & Found Films about the idea of home. John Coffer’s home is beautifully imperfect. I’d love to escape to his oasis for a bit and participate in one of his wet plate workshops. It’s so interesting how the space we inhabit really becomes (…) Read more

    DO: befriend somebody older than you. We look at people who are older than us. They seem so smart – so good at what they do. They have the world all figured out, and you think that you too should be on their level. As a younger sibling, I’ve gotten used to the idea there (…) Read more

    DO:one thing at a time. I recently read, My Life as an Experiment, by A.J. Jacobs. Each chapter explores a new lifestyle experiment, and there was one in particular – “The Unitasker” – which made a significant impact on my thinking. In this chapter, Jacobs makes a commitment to do only one thing at a (…) Read more

    DO: learn a new game Games are a great thing to have in one’s artillery. On my recent trip to Hong Kong I realized why. Firstly, getting there and back involves an extremely…long…voyage… After a while, you’ve finished the book you brought, you get sick of the movies and you’re left to your own devices. (…) Read more

    DO: Have a garage sale I’ve been moving out of my apartment of two years all throughout this past week. To say the least, the experience has been a little traumatic. I can’t help but feel bogged down by all of the stuff I’ve acquired. Never before have I wanted so badly to just throw (…) Read more

    Saturday DO: breathe and smile. I used to always hate pigeon pose – the hip opening exercise which you are supposed to relax into for several minutes at the end of a yoga practice. It hurt me, and having to sit through it for so long just made it worse. I’m already horrible at sitting (…) Read more

    DO: look at something that makes you smile. I started these Saturday DOs with the importance of laughter and self entertainment. But there are moments where you have nothing to put that smile on your face, and so you look to other places for that good laugh. I’ve realized how important it is sometimes to (…) Read more

    DO: embrace change. One of the life lessons that comes with age, is that life is not always the same – there are many phases, and change is a continual force that will take hold of your life as it progresses. Before the change comes, it’s typical to be in a state of limbo. You’re (…) Read more

    If one had enough time and money it would be possible to follow the summer around the world, making it endless. This thought inspired the film Endless Summer and has inspired countless travelers and surfers and adventures. But what if summer isn’t something tangible, defined by weather, fashion, location or anything else? It can be (…) Read more

    There are a lot of things I love about Austin, but near the top of the list are the swimming holes. When we were down there for our July catalog release party, it was sweltering – over 100 degrees. So the Saturday after our party, with a day off to explore, we went straight to (…) Read more
