What We're Loving

January 2014

1.) Classic….that sums up the Louis Ghost chair by Philippe Starck .  It seems equally comfortable in the living room, dining room, or dressing room.  And what a perfect solution to seating when your visual or physical space is limited?! Find it here and here.

2.) Bobby McFerrin’s new CD, Spirit You All, is one I just keep listening to over and over again.  He has the most amazing range, in voice, lyrics, and collaborations with other artists.  According to the CD jacket, “Bobby McFerrin re-imagines Americana with beloved spirituals and original songs raising the roof with joyful grooves.”  I don’t think it gets much better than that! Enjoy listening to the magic of his music here.

3.) Boyd Varty, of Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa, is a marvelous storyteller and has an important message about Ubuntu (human kindness) told through his relationship with Nelson Mandela. 

4.) A bit last minute, but there are two distinctly American exhibits to see in New York and Chicago that are closing later this month. I saw Art & Appetite:  American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine  at the Chicago Art Institute twice because it is so rich and yummy, I just couldn’t get enough!  Try to make it before its close on January 27th

5.) Equally enticing, American Modern:  Hopper to O’Keeffe at the Museum of Modern Art in New York looks wonderful.

6.) Sugata Mitra relays compelling thoughts about Designing a Future for Learning – A School in the Cloud.  His vision is all about education for every child in the world, not just the privileged, and it is fascinating. 

Enjoy listening and hearing, seeing, and pondering this month!
