Today’s Track – Exceptional, Babyface

Because 2016 is (thankfully) coming to a close, and a lovely new year is coming our way this weekend to replace it. I’m hoping it is, as the song goes, exceptional. Wishing you all a very happy new year! Exceptional by Babyface from the album Return of the Tender Lover, 2015.

It’s A Sign

What a fun discovery! Sidney-based Michael Pederson creates mischievious and irreverent street art that pops up around town – to what I must imagine is both the delight and bewilderment of the public lucky enough to stumble upon it.

“I like the idea of interfering with the overly familiar background blur … Ideally with something a passerby might see out of the corner of an eye.”

Going Green

pantone-greenery-today-161208_b76f4ffde0c6887451d5a3bdd1c31732-today-inline-large

Pantone announced “Greenery” as their 2017 pick for Color of the Year last week.

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.
