Ready for another week? Check this out first, to see your life told in jelly beans. Or see the daily routines of some famous creative minds in an easy infograph. Want to see what people from the 1700s put in a time capsule? How would you answer these questions?

If you’ve made goals, maybe some of these will strengthen your intentions: like, how reading a book versus an e-reader could help your memory, how their childhood doesn’t need your stressing, how to fall in love, how to fall asleep fast, how to make balancing an interesting skill outdoors or on your table.

Find out more the woman who wrote the words for “In Humility, Our Saviour” (and many more – I love the library card snippet). Then there’s this modest piece of thoughtfulness, super antibiotics in dirt, and Nobel Laureates drawing with crayons.

If you think that’s impressive, see the chaos a single ping pong ball can do, and how love dances.

Finally, our First Draft Poetry, this week by Melissa Y. Inspired by her watching Interstellar recently, it also ties beautifully into our last link.

“confirmation bias”

Love is the only thing we can perceive that transcends the dimensions of time and space.

–from the movie Interstellar

while it’s probably true

that anything that can be said about love

can also be said about hate,

or fear,




I would like to believe

in the singularity of love–

that it outlasts

other emotions

or is somehow

more powerful


maybe that’s why

those words constricted

the time and space

of a dark movie theater

into a tangled ball of memories

and a few tears
