STUFF + THINGS

W A T C H || The Keepers. Warning: it's very disturbing, but also addictive and filled with mystery and guessing games. It's on Netflix so binge away friends.

L I S T E N || The Joe Rogan Experience #919 podcast with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Dark matter, quantum physics and space movie talk– it's got all the good stuff. Did you know we have left a crazy amount of space garbage in the atmosphere? Humans have only been exploring space since 1957 and we have left a beehive of millions of pieces of space junk orbiting around our planet at 18,000 miles and hour! So they can't catch any of it and it would mean the end of everything if you hit it. It's still blowing my freaking mind! More about space junk here. Also a video of it so you can get an idea of the sheer amount space garbage or you can watch in real time hovering around us here at stuffin.space, a very cool program developed by James Yoder.

R E A D  || About boredom and creativity. I promise it's not boring and it's important for our brains no matter how much we resist it. I vow to be bored more often and here are some ways to prepare myself. 

M A K E || Cold tea for hot days. I've been making up a lot of these lately. Simply steep loose leaf tea (or bags) in a pitcher of cold water in the fridge overnight. Pour over some ice and add a bit of honey simple syrup if desired for a refreshing beverage on a hot day. (photo above: orange-berry cold tea).        To make honey simple syrup: 1 part honey + 1 part hot water. Stir in a pan over the stove or if you're feeling lazy, boil water in a kettle, pour over honey and stir until dissolved. Keep in airtight container in fridge for up to three weeks.

J O U R N A L || The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path To Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron. Just started this book and I AM IN LOVE. If you've ever read Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert you will enjoy this book since she was very inspired by it. Set up in a weekly project format, you get to work on opening and indulging your creativity and mind in various ways.
