I found myself deeply overwhelmed by the need to keep even the most mundane of my Mom’s belongings when she died suddenly this past February. Instead of providing comfort and good memories they became a source of deep sadness and anxiety and I knew the only way I would be able to move past that was to focus on a way to interact with them cathartically.

I had recently become active on Instagram and realized that utilizing the casual aspects of sharing on the app was a way to diminish my own sentimentality towards the objects my Mom left behind. Each image is paired with an archival image of her that speaks to its subject.

Domain Extension Sale!

Ok, I know that headline is super geeky and possibly dry as day old toast but seriously, if you are in the market for a domain extension that is a departure from a dot com, check out the domains below. I’m just bummed because (dot) design isn't available, yet.

Head on over to Hover and reserve a cool TLD (Top Level Domain) »

I can see three brands that could tempt me but for me, taking any full-time job depends on more than the brand name.

What about you? Share in the comments. I'd love to know: Would you jump to work for any of these brands? If so, which ones?
