My book club used to meet in person in New York. Now we're scattered across countries and meeting weekly over Zoom — and it's helped keep me grounded.

Michaela Schwartz's book club at a recent meeting. Michaela Schwartz. Michaela Schwartz is a writer/producer living in New York. Originally from Boston, she graduated from Barnard College with a bachelor's degree in Film and Gender Studies. In September 2018, her friend Leah created a small book club for friends in New York.

6:34 a.m.

In 2 days, I'll reach the one-year mark in my ritual of the sunrise run. I intend to produce my definitive list of the 10 types of sunrises — on the theory that in a year, I've seen all the types. I've given a few numbers already. As I said last May:I haven't assigned numbers to all of the sunrise types. I want to cover them all and only have 10. I'll figure it out when the year comes full circle on September 9th (my first day of doing the sunrise run).So far there's 1 & 2 (very cloudy days) a...

Stop Glamorizing Busy

President Dwight D. Eisenhower often said that what is important is rarely urgent and what is urgent is rarely important. I’ve found that the most badass people I know, the ones who are the best in the world at their craft, are rarely busy in the way we’ve been taught to think of it. Being busy is a disease, a terminal one. It destroys your precious time. Being effective is about using every minute thoughtfully and mindfully as you make steady progress toward your dream. The biggest surprise to ...

All you need to know: Why is Australia fighting against Google and Facebook on behalf of news publishers

Over the past few months, Facebook and Google have been waging a war of sorts with the Australian government. The disagreement originates from a draft of the News Media Bargaining Code which was released at the end of July 2020. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) had sought comments on the code, which essentially helps news organisations to collectively strike an equitable revenue-sharing deal with Google and Facebook. Both Google and Facebook have, unsurprisingly, reacted...

Here's the correct article for the Rodin In His Garden At Musée Rodin. Enjoy!  I can’t remember the last time I visited the Rodin Museum, so when I read there was a new exhibition, I returned. It was late morning on Saturday, when I visited. Once there, I forgot how beautiful and serene it was, an oasis of calm and order.   Rodin In His Garde...

“I’m quitting social media”

I read Going Postal — A psychoanalytic reading of social media and the death drive. In the article, writer Max Read tells us the story about his personal relationship with social media in light of reading The Twittering Machine by Richard Seymour. Read is quitting social media with a rant about the pointlessness of the social media phenomenon. Despite disagreeing with Read’s analysis, I enjoyed his article wholeheartedly. It’s incredibly well-written, both poignant and entertaining at the ...

Another mix of photos, most having to do with food. I’m always taken with these benches shaped like open books. The Moulin Rouge on a rainy night. I love French Onion soup and I always burn the interior of my mouth when I eat it. Hot chocolate at the famous Angelina’s. Fancy food in a shop window. An inviting place to eat. I like that green color.
