Sadly, the world lost Sister Wendy in December of 2018, but surely she left her mark on the world, most notably as an improbable art critic in a series of BBC documentaries. Her charm is unmatched, possibly eclipsed only by her ability to weave a tale of the times and gripping recounts of the artist’s life story that ultimately culminated in the moment captured on canvas. Layers of nuance are unveiled, meanings are discovered, and paintings come to life in her stories. It’s truly other worldly. Experience her magic and watch her talks here
iPHONE PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL
I realize that not everybody has an iPhone, but for those of us that do, and for those of us who love to take photos, there are a ton of super cool features and effects built right into the phone that can be a lot of fun to play with and that can truly elevate your photo game. I’ve had a blast trying out the techniques and finding these hidden tools, all beautifully explained by Emil on his YouTube channel, found here. Send me some of your best, I’d love to see them!
This book has changed my life, and I consider the techniques and mindsets taught here to be my new “modus operandi.” I’ve now listened to this 5 times, and am embracing the tenants of – almost everything is non-essential, fewer but better, maintaining the power of choice, and what’s important now – all with the goal of leading a more meaningful life. I can’t do this powerful book justice in just a few sentences, you can find it here on Audible, and here on Amazon, and a quick visual summary is here. I’d love to hear your experience with the book and the techniques found within.
Let me know what you think. The good, the bad, the ugly, the sublime!
