The Meaning of Life

My friend Nivi sent me this lovely YouTube, I got Frankel's book from my friends at 16, connected to its content and later learned about and loved TED.

To watch please scroll down to turn off the music, than click the play button of this YouTube. Enjoy!

Happy Sunday,

Sara Brown.

5 Things I Like About Manhattan

  1. Some people still use money clips - it reminds me of my grandpa. So cool!
  2. I love the very individual (sometimes hideous) fashion statements
  3. And the gorgeous outfits you see everyday, just passing you on the street...
  4. People are so physically close to one another, and yet so individualized, so apart from one another
  5. New York City has the mystery of a story waiting to happen.

Cyber Fun

I promised fun blog 'rooms' so here they are, and there are some sites in there, too:

Craft Bits

Why? because I love the layout of their pages, because its loaded with craft projects, which I LOVE, and the instructions for these projects are detailed and clear; because it involved the community (write for it, vote, etc.)
Downside? It's loaded with those commercials that keep reappearing.

Karim Rashid

Why? because I LOVE his designs and it's always inspiring to visit
Downside? same as downside below


Why? because it has the best photo-stories
Downside? It's a time warp. You get in and there's no knowing when you'll emerge... I usually emerge when dinner smells smokey:(

Snippet and Ink

Why? because I loved the humor and photos
Downside? If you're not into weddings...

Design Sponge

Why? because I love the design of their layouts, love the photos, rooms and links they write about
Downside? can't think of one...

A Gift Wrapped Life

Why? because I love their photos and design suggestions
Downside? can't think of one...

Patricia Gray

Why? it makes me happy:)
Downside? you'll get the urge to go spending right after visiting this blog. Don't say I didn't warn you...

La La Lovely Things

Why? Amazing photos., inspiring!
Downside? uncontrollable shopping/travelling urge will ensue...

I could cyber travel forever, discovering great blogs and sites, but I need to work and today is the Shavuot evening....

Happy Shavuot and good week to you all!

Visiting Online

Visiting a site is like visiting someones home. They prepared for you, anticipated your arrival, invited you and so everything is a bit tidier than usual, more decorated and polite. Together you spend time at one of the communal spaces of their home and they mainly show what they want you to see.
Visiting a blog can be like that, but it's mostly more personal. As if you were getting the grand tour, or even sitting in one of the inside, more privet, more personal rooms. Visiting a blog might convey a mood or characteristic less known-to-the-public, reveal more about the writer's personality, whereabouts, hobbies, likes and dislikes.

Next post will be about blog 'rooms' I enjoy visiting:)

Where do you visit?

Talk to you soon,
Sara Brown.
