“Moving to New York ended up bringing me closer to home. Berkeley ceased to be the city where I lived, and became instead a set of values and memories—a nationality.

Suddenly I was Californian, something I’d never been before… How wonderful is it to explain away your peculiarities by attributing them to some faraway place!”

We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.  I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’ It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Tupperwolf: Wealth, risk, and stuff

timoni:

vruba:

Please, if you are rich, stop explaining the idea of freedom from stuff as if it’s a trick that even you have somehow mastered. The only way to own very little and be safe is to be rich.

This entire response piece is worth a read. The farm I grew up on was full of stuff. We never threw anything away. I feel guilty throwing away useful things to this day, even though it also feels a bit luxurious: bought a soap I don’t like the smell of? Throw it away!

You can do that when you’re not poor.

Truth.

The Evolution of Mom Dancing, starring Jimmy Fallon and Michelle Obama

I am happy to see the First Lady teaching everyone how to “Dougie”.

I’m typically not a fan of cross dressing for jokes but will make an exception for this.

Pretty much perfect? MO is just everything.

i appreciate a first lady who can really commit to a bit.

Ahhhhh, I love you, MO.

Flickr is still great

bremser:

Recently I looked at my Flickr account, and of my 768 contacts, 240 have uploaded in the past week, 360 this month. This was before the new iOS app and Instagram TOS meltdown. These are impressive statistics, considering I’ve been a member since 2005. After hearing it declared “dead” and “irrelevant,” this is a community of people that care about what they are putting up. So much so that many of them pay for it. Flickr is already the paid alternative so many people are clamoring for. Your photos will not be used to create “meaningful brand engagement.” Years after Flickr ceased to be an exciting business story, it remains one of the most important places for photography culture online.

Here are some people active in the last month that I suggest following after you sign up or reset your old password. I am leaving many out, and will update this post.

Lots of great photography here.  I still adore Flickr.  Wish all my instagram folks would move there.
