this was a good week
This was a good week! Here's why:
• I mean.
• You are more powerful than you realize. My friend Andrea was hypnotized when she was younger. Love this story about her experience.
• Le kimono Africaine. Folks, I was riveted by this talk: a young Cameroonian designer living in Japan creates beautiful pieces of art that combine icons and rituals of both cultures. His talk is a discussion of two different-but-surprisingly-similar cultures, and touches on appropriation, appreciation and blending. Take a look at this 12-minute talk (and if you don't speak French -- as I don't -- you can turn on English subtitles by clicking the "cc" on the bottom right of the screen). So amazing.
• And now, for today's soundtrack. Yesterday, I mentioned that at some moments during the U2 concert, it felt like church. So it seems fitting to share with you this surprise performance that U2 did on Jimmy Kimmel this week. While the performance of this song here in Houston didn't include a back-up choir, it did include the exact same spiritual feeling.
