Summer Sundays Sun Salutations


How's that for alliteration? Sorry I've been off the map (see previous post.) Anyhow, this came across my inbox and when I saw yoga and park, I had to share. I guess this is the second annual. But last summer was a complete blur with newborn baby, so it will be the first for me!

Yoga Hive in the Park  by the east end-based Yoga Hive studio
Every Sunday morning from May 20 through August 19
9:30am at Highland Park Reservoir
Rain, rain go away: in case of uncooperative weather, it moves it back to the studio.

Frame of Mind

I came across this documentary about design thinking and had to shamelessly promote. Not because I have anything to do with the funding or creation of this artifact, but because I constantly, maybe daily, am asked what kind of designer I am, and this is a look at the type of work I love. I know I talk so much about interiors, products and fashion, and I am a lover of all things well-designed. But when it comes to my true passion in the workplace, it is to collaborate with others and design a solution to a wicked problem.

The film premiered a few days ago so the jury's still out on reviews. However, there are some major heavy-hitters interviewed, several of whom were keynote speakers at conferences I've attended, so count me in as a viewer. Plus, I particularly like the quote in the trailer: It doesn't matter what the problem is. I can go in and solve it because I am a designer! But in all seriousness, while the term design thinking is old to the choir, I hope this film highlights what an open-minded approach, collaboration and prototyping can do for issues affecting many of us.
