  • article:

25 signs that you're on the right track in life, via brandmentalist.com, a gorgeous site focused on "the art of passionate living"

  • something inspiring/exciting/beautiful/powerful

well, the Annenberg Space for Photography in LA in and of itself fits the bill for all four of the above adjectives, but it's especially great right now because they have a new exhibit!  yay!  i'm going this weekend to see "sink or swim."  

the show presents the "human story of resilience" in the world's coastal communities.  it focuses on the ways people worldwide are responding to sea level rise.  i'll post pictures next week.
