Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #55

Start your Monday off right:

  1. Pie season is happily upon us. The University of California uses science to help you make the pie to dominate the desert table. 
  2. Theo Sanson connected a slack line 1650 ft in Castle Valley, Utah between two stone towers and walked across it. The video is absolutely insane 
  3. Beautiful sculptures created by John Bisbee with nothing but house nails. 
  4. The photographer, Alex Strohl, shares his journey as his wanders the majestic alps finding those living among its tall peaks and stunning views.
  5. You may not know who Glen Keane is but everyone knows his work. He animated many of Disney's iconic characters. In this video, he demonstrates a new virtual reality program that allows him to draw the animations in 3-D. 
  6. "Anyone who says, “Here’s my address,
    write me a poem,” deserves something in reply.
    So I’ll tell a secret instead:
    poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
    they are sleeping. They are the shadows
    drifting across our ceilings the moment
    before we wake up. What we have to do
    is live in a way that lets us find them."                                                                                       Naomi Shihab Nye
  7. Set Your Defaults. I am slowly realizing how much phone notifications dominate my life. I find myself checking my phone even though I just checking my phone a few minutes ago. At the end of a brilliant conversation between Simon Sinek and Debbie Millman,  Simon brings up how notifications are designed to be addicting. Colin Wright challenges you to set your own defaults and not just accept what is normal for everyone else.
