Jon Favreau’s film “Chef" opens in theaters today, and I’m kind of pumped for the food porn, the comedy, and the idea that you can start from bare ingredients to make something amazing.

The new app 1 Second Everyday is featured in the movie and you can join the 1 Second Everyday revolution recording 1 second of your day to tell the story of your life. It’s kind of cool that you can even submit to be part of the ”Chef” crowd. 

Happiness at work: Why money isn't the only thing that matters

When I am attacked by gloomy thoughts, nothing helps me so much as running to my books. They quickly absorb me and banish the clouds from my mind.
– Michel de Montaigne (via writersrelief)

Money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you books.

Which is practically the same thing.

If you want something that doesn’t yet exist, there’s only one sure-fire way to get it. That’s to become a Maker.

With DIY platforms like Yapp, the barrier to technology and making things is lower than ever. What do you want to make?

Unclear how superglue factors into all this.

Glue has a component of it that is made from the hooves of hoofed animals like horses and pigs. Don’t ask how I know this. I can only assume that the “super” part of it has to do with the fact that anything from a unicorn would be hella better than a normal horse.

Reading is the work of the alert mind, is demanding, and under ideal conditions, produces finally a source of ecstacy. This gives the experience of reading a sublimity and power unequaled by any other form of communication.

I would always rather be happy than dignified.

If you have other things in your life - family, friends, good productive day work - then these can interact with your writing and the sum will be all the richer.

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
