fist pump tuesday
Here is what is making me pump my fist today:
1. Daisy May Erlewine, “Like This” — I have listened to this beautiful folk song probably close to 100 times in the past two days. I love the sweet, almost nonsensical lyrics; it’s grown on me exponentially the more I listened to the words. I couldn’t find a video or clip of the song (since Ms. Erlewine is a local Michigan artist), but you can buy the song on iTunes for a mere 99 cents. I promise, it’s the best dollar you’ve spent in a loooooong time.
2. T-Rex Networks — This comic explains exactly how I feel about networking…and why going to PR social groups always gave me the heebie-jeebies. If you’re a young professional (a “yo-pro”?), you might get a belly laugh out of this.
3. Choosing to tell different stories — I found this tidbit from Jonathan Safran Foer written in one of my journals and found it simply beautiful:
“…’Everything is possible again.’ It was the perfect thing to write, because that was exactly how I felt. We could retell our stories and make them better, more representative or aspirational. Or we could choose to tell different stories. The world itself had another chance.”
