22. READ. LOOK. THINK.
So I’ve changed the layout of the blog, and of READ.LOOK.THINK. Bullet points are very clear, but they straggle out over the page and look so ugly; I just couldn’t face them anymore! And now to the interesting things -
READ: Looking back in my eighty-first year. A poem by Maxine Kumin. | You wouldn’t believe the number of emails I’ve received from people asking the same question: “I’m naturally quiet, how can I still do well in advertising?” Introverts in ad agencies: a helpful guide. | Writing a cookbook. | “There were two women for one man: each woman blonde, bored, and not eating.” | “I’d like to start again, with the brain of a cheerleader.” | “…most see it as a sort of ephemeral and unworthy venue. My view is: that’s where the people are, so bring the literature to them right where they are.” Death by Twitter. | ‘Wherever you go, there you are’ on Thought Catalog. | How to write a ‘Lives’ essay in the NYTimes.com.
LOOK: Beautiful GIF self portraits. | Walnut pesto recipe. |How to make spoon oil. | I’m going to make bawkbawkbawk’s chocolate peel when I get some good oranges in London. | Henri Matisse draws a boy | The best coffee in London.
THINK: Are Australians loath to reach for the stars? By my friend Clem who will one day win an Oscar | The anatomy of melancholy: can depression be good for you? | Stop calling it curation. I value the original creative work I feature on READ.LOOK.THINK much more than where I got it from. And if I had to “via” everything I frankly wouldn’t have time to put this together. I have my Links page, a work in progress, and the 300+ people I follow on Twitter. If you wonder where I go to for discovery, that’s where.
