Morgan Eckroth: World Barista Championships Final in Melbourne, 2022
I love the dedication, passion and professionalism that she shows. Her deep passion for coffee is obvious here and the way she weaves deep stories into her coffee making process (which itself looks intense and complicated) she does all of this in an effortless and graceful way…she is pretty amazing this girl. She came second!
This old knitted house
The knitted house, 2006 made for the London Architecture Biennale by the group Knitting Site- women who knitted the outside walls out of garbage bags, old plastic bags, and rope. They continued on the day of the event, as the house unfolded before the crowd’s eyes!

“Take care” mix by Dreaming Files
I was initially attracted to the VHS tape quality tulips used in cover photo of this mix. Then the mix came on which is a warming, comforting and uplifting underground house mix. Creator of the mix Dreaming Files has done well, the title and it’s meaning is suitably enigmatic, the music suitably dreamy and the video clips are old VHS tapes from 90’s NYC, which provide a compelling visual narrative.

Ladies be warned: don’t stare at the moon while taking a pee in the middle of the night
Breton women who answered nature’s call at night were careful never to turn to the moon when they did so, especially if it was a waning moon. Otherwise, they risked conceiving by virtue of the moon. It also brought bad luck to castrate a pig during this moon phase! #wyrdwednesdayOriginally tweeted by Bonjour from Brittany (@BonReposGites) on January 11, 2023.
