Merry, Happy to all!
I love this time of year. For me, it's about time with family and loved ones, good food, and an opportunity to reflect on the past year and prepare for the year ahead.
I'm enjoying this new, weekly "5 Things" series. It's a chance for me to better absorb and then compile the various content that comes across my channels. So, here are some of the things that caught my attention this last week.
They Released 14 Wolves In A Park. But No One Was Prepared For THIS. What Happens Next Is A Miracle And Proves That We Must Take Care Of Our Amazing Planet by We Love Animals. A magnificent example of resiliency as interdependence, connectedness, and diversity. Too often, resiliency is connected to redundancy or robustness, but nature shows us a more powerful relationship.
Michelle Obama and Us by Amy Davidson, The New Yorker. I'm going to miss her.
Brian Eno's Next Album Does Not End by Miles Bowe, Fact Magazine. "I wanted also that this music would unfold differently all the time — 'like sitting by a river': it’s always the same river, but it’s always changing."
The Great A.I. Awakening by Gideon Lewis-Kraus The New York Times.
Evidence of the Superiority of Female Doctors by James Hamblin, The Atlantic.
