Over the last decade it has broadened and intensified its attention to creative approaches emerging from communities, especially those with poor and marginalized populations. This is a thoughtful and important essay about future directions in an increasingly technical world.

          I am always fascinated when the World Economic Forum (WEF) shares an unexpected essay. This piece on the Japanese practice of “forest bathing” is a perfect read for this long holiday weekend–and you should go beyond the reading to exploring the impact on your body and spirit of a forest near you.

Our cult of “genius” is blinding us to true genius all around, say Leonardo da Vinci’s biographers — Quartz

          Leonardo is my favorite person from Renaissance history; I think it is more his endless curiosity that has always fascinated me, rather than any single accomplishment. This essay from Quartz is a very important read because it focuses on what we miss about extraordinary people: they can bloom at any age and they are all around us if we would but look. The featured images are from Brian Andreas and his Story People. (You can see more of Brian’s work at http://www.storypeople.com)

Today’s post from Quartz follows Lawrence Yeo as he works his way through depression with art. There are lessons here for all of us.

          Who was that younger you? And would you recognize yourself if you could turn back the clock today? This is a fascinating report on probably the only study spanning the years from teen to seventy-seven. Our stories are not a continuous line but a series of palimpsests, partial glimpses erased and written over of a process that brings each of us to where we are this day. A must read that needs rereading.

     Almost every major scientist I know plays a musical instrument. When I was a dean at a new university in Texas, we could bring together many small ensembles from the musician/scientists among us. We cannot underestimate the power of music in human life and we need to put it at the heart of our education systems. Enjoy this report on how music shaped the life and work of Albert Einstein.
