Agreed, but with these caveats.
1. people have the TV on more than they ever have, in fact
2. making should still be considered as vital or more than consuming, even great art. and it's accessible. you can do it anytime and anywhere.

30 Days of Meditation: Meditate Angry, day 2

(yesterday’s) lesson:
Make yourself meditate (or exercise or your own ______ good-for-you-thing) and you’ll feel better no matter how pissed off you are.

What happened:
Woke up late and walked the dog in a 50 mph skin-burning, mascara-melting wind. The kind that convinces you hell is cold and plays a lot of Garrison Keillor. I looked like a revival of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, with the sniffles.

Between car and office, there’s a code-red WTF text from a client demanding something I’ve never heard about. Plus emails. Plus paperwork. Plus I’m the only car in the parking lot, a cruel reminder that the rest of the world is going to a movie and having boozy brunch today.

Despite the hour (11 am) all signs point to a Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day. Yay 2012.

What I did:
Made my to-do list, checked my email, turned on the space heater in my brightly lit but quaintly heated office and did my 10 minutes o’ meditation. Despite the deluge of to-dos and shoulda-already-dones.How I did it: Used the breath to push energy from my solar plexes to all corners of my pissed off, coffee-spilled, ice-cold, way behind self. Literally felt energy going up and out, pushing the mean reds out.


How I felt:
At the beginning, I was hunched over with my hands shoved between my thighs for warmth. Not exactly open to the gifts of the universe but sometimes body heat trumps Om-Shanti. By the end, I was sitting straight and tall, feeling 100% awake and turned the EFF-OFF energy to ON energy. Sounds annoying, but it’s actually true.OK now onto that text. I’m ready.

Note: I'm doing all this double duty right now til (and if) I figure out to how link up my tumblr posts and my google+

I know nothing about rap. Hip hop was never mother's milk to a gal from northern Wisconsin in the metal era. However, I am liking this: http://advicefromarapper.blogspot.com/

I just discovered this guy. his drawings are moving, the meditations even more, especially with a bit of the perspective of an Israeli on the messy bits we Americans ignore in favor of.. the Kardashians or something. Asaf Hanuka, artist.

Wow.. Best Made Axe hoofed it to Spicer. Sad a NY company has to introduce us to an expert in our midst.

Here's a little glimpse of our trip to Spicer, MN last weekend, where we chatted tool restoration with our friend Gary Bridge. He taught us an electrolysis process to remove rust and oxidization from an axe head.

As someone who has worked with sustainble and conscious businesses since the mid-90s (yep, I'm old) I think this is an overdue and very relevant conversation.

creative director. seeker. skeptic. believer. doer. -aholic. i like stuff.
Introduction

Formerly a group creative director at a traditional advertising agency, I really am an award-winning independent creative director, writer, branding consultant and strategist.

It all started at Aveda Corporation in its heyday, working under Horst Rechelbacher himself.

Since then, I've worked with entrepreneurs and big companies, boutique agencies and startups from coast to coast and, of course, in between.

My passion for trend, consumer insight and behavior, and ideation meet the ability to lead and participate in creative execution—particularly in retail, beauty, style, wellness, lifestyle and sustainable brands.

A past contributor to online interior lifestyle powerhouse Apartment Therapy, I also (foolishly) launched a product in the specialty stationery channel in 2001.

Oh, yeah, and optioned a screenplay that never got produced about 100 years ago.

Having fallen on and off any wagon that would have me, today I am a 3rd level Reiki master, curiosity-seeker and student of life and spirit (innoculated in Catholic school and chakra-ized during the Aveda years). I seek to temper my politically incorrect, happy hour tendencies for the greater good, higher love and common ground. And to make apps and books and more for it.
