Friday Inspiration, Vol. 166

screen capture from "The Brotherhood of Skiing"

I caught this film at the Banff Mountain Film Festival last fall and am excited it’s finally online—if you’ve at all lost sight of the pure joy of skiing with friends, it will probably remind you (among other things it’ll do). (video)

“Every time you go to throw something away — an eggshell, a used wrapper, a straw, a dirty paper towel, a broken DVD player, a sock with a hole in the toe — pause, and gently ask yourself How else can I use this?”

Dr. Seuss wrote Green Eggs and Ham because Bennett Cerf bet him $50 he couldn’t write an entertaining children’s book with only 50 different words?

You don’t often find the occasion to type the phrase “mesmerizing 8-minute video of Hong Kong housing towers,” but this is actually a pretty mesmerizing 8-minute video of Hong Kong housing towers—and if you don’t have time for that, there’s also a great collection of photos that won’t take you 8 minutes to scroll through.

I don’t know what the Little Free Library in your neighborhood looks like, but I will go out on a limb and say it’s not as cool as this one.
