I had a great time in Berlin, hanging out with Koosje, with Felix, and making new pals at the Beyond Tellerrand conference. One of my favorite things about the conference was the onstage DJ who sampled my words and then spun them into a new dance track. Crazy!
Koosje and I had a private tour of Sammlung Boros, the most amazing contemporary museum in an old Nazi bunker in Berlin. Try to see it if you are in Berlin, but book well ahead of time.

Listening to Badly Drawn Boy after a long hiatus. He’s always been one of my favorites but he made me too sad after Patti left. (That was the case with a lot of my other favorites too.

Got this when I was listening to the Philosophy Bites podcast.
