Staying in: FOGO—fear of going out—is the new FOMO, according to this writer who’d rather unplug than Instagram from a big party, via The Cut.

Street art: Glittering rock formations are popping up in cracks and crevices around LA and beyond, via Colossal.

Mail: Letters left in this makeshift island postbox are hand delivered by travelers who find it, a tradition that began with forlorn seamen. A lengthy but lovely read, via the BBC.

Food: Holy guacamole, this recipe is good. And just in time for Cinco de Mayo, via The Kitchn. 

Word: chai b’seret (adj.; Hebrew): being romantically unrealistic; literally, “living in a movie.”
