Disney Museum

During my mom’s visit we went to the Disney Museum. It opened a few years ago but I hadn’t been to it, yet, so it was cool to check it out. There are ten rooms of exhibits, each focusing on a different part of Disney’s life and work. Each room has tons of photos, videos and information. You could probably spend all day there if you wanted to! They also have a theater (playing Cinderella when we were there) although we didn’t check it out this time around.

Women’s Visionary Fiction, Poetry and Film

I was recently looking through the courses that are offered in the Women’s Spirituality degree program at my school (CIIS). There are three related courses offered related to the power of women in the arts. I thought I’d share some of the names of the creative, spiritual women and their works that are highlighted in those course descriptions.

Women’s Visionary Fiction

  • Isabel Allende
  • Mary Mackey
  • Ella Deloria
  • Maxine Hong Kingston

I’ve read some of Allende’s work and love it and want to read more, including her newest book Ripper: A Novel Womens Visionary Fiction, Poetry and Film. I’m embarassed to say that I don’t think I’ve read any of Kingston’s full works and I’ve never even heard of the other two women – something I intend to remedy ASAP.

Swissnex has an interactive website up now called My Future Vision. When you go to it, you’ll see how different people have very briefly finished the statement … “My vision of the future is …”

Each time that you go to it you’ll see different responses. You can add your own responses in and they’ll get added to the mix that people see from time to time.

How would you answer this question in just a few words? I chose to write, “collaboration, compassion“. To be honest, I’m not sure that’s how I see the future but that is what my hope for the future is and I’d rather share the hopes and spread the optimism than share anything dark or conflicted right now.

30 Documentaries About Architecture I Want To See

Screen shot 2013 10 09 at 2.09.52 PM 30 Documentaries About Architecture I Want To See

Sometimes I really like when other people publish lists of things because it gives me something to work off of to learn something new. That was the case earlier this year when I saw Arch Daily’s article called The 30 Architecture Docs To Watch In 2013. I haven’t watched anything on the list yet but I came across the bookmark on my computer and got re-interested in working my way through the list. I think it would give me a great foundation in architecture, a design area that interests me but that I don’t know a whole lot about. A lot of them seem to be available online so I’ll start there. Have you seen any of them? Got any suggestions where to start?
