Happy Friday! It's been a long rainy week, and I'm excited to snuggle in for the weekend.
- Loving the beautiful and theatrical album by Natalie Prass, especially "It Is You" and "Reprise," which is so classic and beautiful that it sounds like the pace of a heartbeat while skipping through the Central Park on an autumn day.
- Enjoying a big pot of this soup that I made last night - a delicious recipe for using up the abundant carrots you might have this time of year.
- Going deep into the archives of the Innovation Hub podcast, Kara Miller's investigation into thought leaders and thinkers.
- And finally, a few words from Rebecca Solnit about how happiness might not be quite what we're looking for in this life.
"I know a woman who was lovingly married for seventy years. She has had a long, meaningful life that she has lived according to her principles. But I wouldn’t call her happy; her compassion for the vulnerable and concern for the future have given her a despondent worldview. What she has had instead of happiness requires better language to describe. There are entirely different criteria for a good life that might matter more to a person — honor, meaning, depth, engagement, hope."
