This is Phylicia’s letter to her 21 year old self. Very inspirational. Hope it resonates with you
"Dear Phylicia,Romantic involvement distracts you and can blind you to what’s really in front of you. And what really is in front of you? You are. You don’t even know yourself yet. You think you know and you want to assert that you do, now that you’re a certain age, but you don’t. What’s in front of you is a whole world of experiences beyond your imagination. Put yourself, and your growth and development, first. There are long-term repercussions to what you’re doing now. Everything you do, every thought you have, every word you say creates a memory that you will hold in your body. It’s imprinted on you and affects you in subtle ways—ways you are not always aware of. With that in mind, be very conscious and selective.With high hopes for you,Phylicia”

"Dear Phylicia,

Romantic involvement distracts you and can blind you to what’s really in front of you. And what really is in front of you? You are. You don’t even know yourself yet. You think you know and you want to assert that you do, now that you’re a certain age, but you don’t. What’s in front of you is a whole world of experiences beyond your imagination. Put yourself, and your growth and development, first. There are long-term repercussions to what you’re doing now. Everything you do, every thought you have, every word you say creates a memory that you will hold in your body. It’s imprinted on you and affects you in subtle ways—ways you are not always aware of. With that in mind, be very conscious and selective.

With high hopes for you,
Phylicia”

The Watershed, a 70-square-foot, off the grid writer’s retreat in Wren, Oregon, USA designed by Erin Moore.

Professor and nature writer Kathleen Dean Moore wanted a studio in which to write and observe the wetland ecosystem on the banks of the Marys River. Calling on the design expertise of an architect daughter, the carpentry skills of her husband, the labor of friends, and a front loader, she erected The Watershed in 2007.

NEW BANSKY SIGHTED IN NYC:
Mysterious graffiti artist Banksy has done a massive, ambitious new piece across the entirety of the city. Banksy has painted yellow lines down the center of streets, and white grids at all corners to make a statement about how we are expected to know our place in society and follow a set of rigid rules. However, the paint has obviously been intentionally worn to show that the rules break down and that the paradigms will shift.
Brilliant.

Congratulations Illinois for becoming the 15th state to legalize marriage equality. 15 down, 35 to go!

This photo of my second home, taken from across from my first apartment in Chicago, makes me very happy.  I was a bit worried it would be the 35th.
