Hello intersectional thinkers 👋
Greetings from 2023 Sydney, Australia ☀️
For those who are still in 2022, enjoy it!
For those who are experiencing the first few hours of 2023, happy new year!
Here are some intersectional ideas from 2022 that I’m carrying over into the new year:
Favourite Intersectional Ideas
From the brilliant minds of others:
Brie's notes on taste
Why: One of my 12 questions is “How do we develop our taste (in music, food, people, etc.) Brie’s notes offer a great place to start answering this open-ended question.
Samuel’s against the survival of the prettiest
Why: Also related to taste and beauty, this one is about ugly buildlings.
Florian’s old world
Why: Florian articulates thoughts in my mind elegantly and leads me to others who have already been thinking about this more deeply than I have… 🐒
From my own attempts:
If it’s your first time here, and you like what you see, subscribe for intersections, paradoxes, visual Zettelkastens, and support my work!
Favourite Intersectional Visuals (videos)
How to make lemonade in felt
Why: My brain cells were working overtime trying to figure out how this worked…
Chinese animated film about a monkey wreaking havoc in heaven (1965)
Why: I have distinct memories of this animation as a 5 year old. After seeing this, I’d prance around the house with my blankets draped on me for years to come. Can’t believe 20+ years later, I see it remastered on Instagram?!
Asian Americans on identity (from the New Yorker)
Why: It’s like chicken soup
My 2023 Plan
THANK YOU to all you beautiful people sharing a moment of your life with me at the intersection.
2022 was a strange year for me - getting almost everything I thought I wanted yet yearning for less. Let me figure out how to translate that into some interesting intersections for you to read, and see you in 2023!
Have a good week!
Loved the Life Design video and how you build on James Clear's framework. Never really thought about starting a plan with what you need to "stop" doing, makes so much sense!
Happy New Year!!!
As we ring in the New Year, I wish you great company and good cheer. I hope all of our 2023 will be full of grand adventures and blessed opportunities.
