I think what makes these old Volkswagen vans so addicting is the uncertainty… you’re probably gonna get there but you may not. And that tiny bit of questioning turns them from a mere machine into a relationship. You think about how you’re treating them, you talk to them, you watch their gauges, you listen to their sounds, you smell their smells… you actually drive them. Today, Donnie and I set off on the most remote road we’ve ever seen, the Cassiar Highway to the Alaska Highway. We’re not expecting Internet for the next 1,000 miles, so we’ll see ya in Alaska!

There is something so innate about the act of travelling. No matter what you see, the act of moving somewhere brings with it a sense of hope. Hope that the next day could truly be the best day of your life or you could experience something that could change you forever, somehow; anything could happen. And it’s important to remember we don’t all belong to just one place; we are all free to move around and enjoy living on this planet. — Into the West by Richard Paris Wilson - Exposure
The Inspiration Behind Nina Payne
Gabriella Hiatt has always been a dancer at heart. Not only does the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based founder and designer of burgeoning footwear brand Nina Payne perform regularly with modern dance company Douglas Dunn & Dancers, but her designs reflect a lifetime love of the art form.
“Nonverbal communication is a whole side of a person that often gets ignored,” said Hiatt, who launched Nina Payne in 2011. “I get the most inspiration when I’m moving, and that says something about how [humans are] wired.”
Hiatt has been dancing since age 6, and the influence is strong, from the name of her company — Nina Payne was an American vaudeville dancer during the Jazz Age — to the performance-inspired flats, low-heeled booties, oxfords and loafers in her collection. For More

[Krochet Kids] We have a different approach to how we create impact and we believe it’s one that people need to be talking about. We focus on holistically caring for individuals, as opposed to creating broad-stroke strategies or campaigns that meet temporary needs. — Kohl Crecelius — Somewhere
Learned today about a 5 yr old boy from MA, diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor that is inoperable. He is unable to attend kindergarten due to his illness but his parents have discovered that cards in the mail always cheer him up. Friday will be his 6th birthday! If you have a chance, please take time to write him a note and send to: Danny Nickerson, PO box 212. Foxboro, MA 02035 ❤️❤️❤️
Amen. Less than 24 hours ‘till Nantucket!
