"The making of a home is a serious problem."


More gripping sentences from this crazy book:

"They are, I am convinced, completely ignorant of their own wonderful talents." "This is how things happen." "The mouth of the cells is, of course, always turned upwards. A pot cannot hold its contents if it be upside down."

Oh and one chapter is called "SELF-DENIAL OF THE SPANISH COPRIS." Another is called "TWO STRANGE GRASSHOPPERS."

AND and and (I can't stop getting excited to share this book with you), one of the illustrations is titled "Sometimes the Scarab seems to enter into partnership with a friend."

(in the comments section on instagram) Tell me anything. Your dream car. Your fave sandwich (in detail). Your least favorite memory. Your favorite month. The person you miss the most. The song you wish you would never hear again. Tell me about the time you got rid of a behavior that wasn't serving you anymore. Or just tell me to shut the hell up!

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
