You make me notice more. ✨
“How the phrase “I’ve thought about this a lot” often precedes a statement that could use, still, a lot more thought.” 😄 Also, Aunt Debbie - so close to Little Debbie, who supplies all the road snacks for *my* family
How many states were you in, in the last 10 days? Ahhh….it’s good to be young!
I always love wandering around inside your observations! Great seeing you @ Largo!
I always enjoy your observations.
I love seeing the world filtered through your eyes and heart. ❤️❤️❤️
Thanks, Spencer. Adding that Robin Sloan piece to my graduate seminar on emerging media that starts next week.
such excellent nuggets of life. thank you for the reminder to observe.
Can’t wait to dive into some of these links! Always looking to be inspired! Thanks Spencer!
Does your Aunt Debbie still have a swimming pool?
Self repairing roads….of course the big guys don’t want to know about it…$$$$$….. but like mending vs fast fashion….”stitch it don’t ditch it” is a new catchphrase the fast fashion companies don’t like to hear…..
So many materials!! Never thought about them quite like that…..and biodegradable plastics……..I’ve shared that one…
As for universal health cover…..we have it here in Australia…it’s called Medicare and it’s bluddy brilliant! Anyone can see a doctor for free and go to hospital…. get ops etc too…. Sure it can involve waiting times for “non urgent” issues but at the end of the day it’s free ( we pay through our taxes of course) and if you have urgent stuff or need ICU it’s fast and efficient. Gotta thank the foresight of a Labor govt decades ago but we really are the Lucky country on that score 🙏🦘
This is so great...that Xerox stuff reads like a lost George Saunders masterpiece. What a world this is.
Hi Spencer, this is one of the best of your many Observations postings. Keep up the good work. Everything you do is very interesting. Love, Zaid
Lots to unpack here, perfect for a rainy Saturday!
