When The Beatles sang about the need for eight days in a week, we’re pretty sure they were hoping for an extra Saturday. Make the most of the one you’ve got and set aside some time for reading. Here, a few things we saw and loved this week.
Flowers: A Costa Rican village was flooded with 8 million flower petals, and it’s pretty glorious, via Lost At E Minor.
Art: Social media symbols and emoji explain what’s really happening in famous paintings, and the “someone is typing” text bubble has never been quite so poignant, via Design Boom.
Books: One author explains her preference for book narrators who lie, deceive and keep audiences in the dark. Her argument sort of has us agreeing, via Daily Beast.
Word: eunoia (n.; Greek): the shortest English word containing all five vowels, it means beautiful thinking or a well mind.
