Hello there. How's your week been? Good? Good. Here's what I'd like to share with you today:
What video moved me
On May 1, 1969, Fred Rogers appeared before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee requesting funds for the growth of a (then) new concept called national public broadcasting. His tone, his pace, his humility and his stunning grasp of language makes this a truly amazing watch.
What quote I'm pondering
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” - Jim Rohn
What app I'm using
I'm a big music fan. I listen to a pretty broad range of music: everything from Pantera to Kendrick Lamar. I love "DJing" at parties and making playlists. JQBX takes it to the next level. Using your Spotify account, it lets you play & listen to music in sync with friends or public groups online. It's essentially a chat room with a collaborative playlist, where people take turns to be the DJ. Very diplomatic and perfect for an office with many different musical tastes!
What book I'm reading
'On the Shortness of Life' by Seneca, one of the greatest Roman Stoics that I really admire. It's a very short book, but it's an intense read. I'm taking my time to read every sentence carefully and take from it what I can. After all, it was written in 49 AD, and I'm used to mems and emojis as opposed to ancient Latin philosophy. Find it here.
What I'm listening to
Always thought this was a song by Nirvana, but found out just a few days ago that it's a cover of a song from the 60s. Here's the original.
