Five habits to heal the heart of democracy

Tue, Feb 21, 2017|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Five habits to heal the heart of democracy

From Parker Palmer at Global Oneness Project: The human heart is the first home of democracy. It is where we embrace our questions. Can we be equitable? Can we be generous? Can we listen with our whole beings, not just our minds, and offer our attention rather than our opinions? And do we have enough resolve in our hearts to act courageously, relentlessly, without giving up—ever—trusting our fellow citizens to join with us in our determined pursuit of a living democracy?
—Terry Tempest Williams

"We the People" called American democracy into being. Today, the future of our democracy is threatened. How can "We the People" call American politics back to health at a time when, in the words of Bill Moyers, "we have fallen under the spell of money, faction, and fear"? One answer is close at hand, within everyone's reach. We must return to the "first home" of democracy, which, as Terry Tempest Williams points out, is found not in a centuries-old document or in a distant city, but in the human heart. · Go to Five habits to heal the heart of democracy →

Poster perfect: The art of James McMullan

Tue, Feb 21, 2017|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on Poster perfect: The art of James McMullan

From NY Times: No other living artist is more closely identified with an American theater company than James McMullan. For 30 years, his painterly posters for Lincoln Center Theater have been turned into collectibles that are more than advertising: They’re synonymous with the shows themselves. It’s hard not to think of “Carousel” without recalling his artwork for the 1994 revival that depicts a brooding Billy Bigelow, vividly illuminated from below, atop wooden horses that rear beneath an angry sky.

To commemorate Mr. McMullan’s artistic tenure with Lincoln Center, a permanent exhibition of some of his best-known works was recently installed in the lobby of the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. For playwrights, having Mr. McMullan, 82, spend so much time considering and visualizing their created world is like having Picasso paint their child’s portrait. · Go to Poster perfect: The art of James McMullan →

Unlike you, your Facebook account can be immortal

Tue, Feb 21, 2017|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Unlike you, your Facebook account can be immortal

From NY Times: Facebook allows you to designate a friend or family member as a “legacy contact.” If you want to have your account memorialized after you die, this person basically serves as the executor of your Facebook account by managing your profile and can update your cover photo and profile photo, post information and accept new friend requests. (Memorialized accounts without legacy contacts cannot be changed.) · Go to Unlike you, your Facebook account can be immortal →
