Five Best

#1.  Found this on Wil Wheaton's Tumblr. Those that grew up in the 80s or are massive Trekkies may know Wil Wheaton...you should check out his tumblr - it's great.  It very much echos my thoughts on our culture's fascination with "keeping up with the Joneses".  It also echos my thoughts regarding some lukewarm reactions I've received on my recent career move.  You can see below Wil's blog entry that he writes, "I want this on my wall".  Me too - it is a great reminder to keep a lot of things about life in perspective.
#2.  Sy likes to watch music videos on Youtube.  This one by Will.i.am and friends is the best - I love the message.  Click this to enjoy while browsing the rest of the articles.

#3.  Organic Gardens Network shared this gem at the end of the summer (which for some reason in my mind it is still the end of the summer because I just don't want to let that free wheeling feeling of the summer time go quite yet.).

#4.  Found this neat music blog.

#5.  I just quit my day job to pursue growing my jewelry line full time.  No more working two full time jobs for me and more time with John and Sylas.  It doesn't seem quite real just yet and I am SO excited for this new routine.
