I’d rather be around a passionate nerd than a non-passionate cool person. Because if you lack passion, your soul is diminishing by the second. You have to be passionate about something. Call it obsessed or whatever you want, but be obsessed about something. Obsessed people care. I’m passionate about so many things, it becomes an issue at certain points, but at least you have the ability to feel that much about something

Siobhan Bohnacker writes about this 1937 Ansel Adams photograph, which shows the painter Georgia O’Keeffe engaged in conversation with Orville Cox, the head wrangler at Ghost Ranch: http://nyr.kr/1fksOtk

“Adams was a master of tonal light, and the depth of this image and its flawless composition place it somewhere between the intimate and the expansive. The dichotomy between the two people creates a portrait that is incredibly compelling and seductive.”

Starbucks Channels Old-World Mysticism In New Big Easy Store

Starbucks has opened a new store in New Orleans that’s designed to channel the mystical feel of the city itself. Evocative of an early 1900s apothecary, the store is latest in Starbucks’s portfolio of hyper-local shops aimed at being part of a neighborhood’s culture, rather than disturbing it.

Although still contrived, I appreciate their conscious nod towards local culture.

 ”When you talk about organizing a room such that when you enter it you’re on axis with this perfect square window, that is both modern and classical at the same time. That is how you should enter a room, always in line with the view.” - architect Deborah Berke on designing the interiors of 432 Park Avenue
