These delightful photographs are plucked from the winners of National Geographic’s 2011 traveler photo contest; they are humbling and beautiful, yet make me want to go everywhere and meet everyone.

See the rest here.

Some friendships never die…

Ally sent me this TEDxTeen video earlier this week, but I didn’t watch it until today. Stupid me. In it, 15-year-old teeny blogger Tavi Gevinson tells us to be Stevie Nicks (as well as some other solid, inspiring female-oriented things). Girl started a fashion blog in 2008, then fashion magazine Rookie Mag in 2011. Talk about ambition.

And smarts:

“When in actuality, women are complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy, and women happen to be people.”

There are seven minutes more of that here:

Is it OK that I’m nearing 30 and still feel like I’m “figuring it out?” In the spirit of this TEDxTeen Talk, I’ll say yes.

Also, let’s remember that Girls premieres tomorrow. Good things are coming. It is known.


Via …anyways.

Via wit and delight.

Via fuck your noguchi coffee table.

Via believe in sound.

Via egotv.

With seven billion people on the planet, no matter what time it is, there is always someone else out there who is wiping refried bean burrito off of their winter jacket.

And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.

I hope all of my best friends get the chance to sing and dance as much as they want.
