Quote I’ve been pondering – “Be the person you needed when you were younger” – Ayesha A. Siddiqi

What I’ve been watching this weekthis 3 minute animation explaining empathy stopped me in my tracks on my first watch, and had me completely immersed. I’ve watched it half a dozen times now and love its message around connection.

Purchase I’m enjoyingthis Patagonia jacket. The snow, rain and cold isn’t letting up here in Denmark, I needed a reliable and ethical jacket. My outdoor gear is usually Patagonia and REI. This is because the quality is superb and both the companies values and ethics are good too. This particular waterproof is terrific, the best I’ve ever owned.

What I’ve been readingWhy I didn’t answer your email A terrific piece of writing that will make you laugh as well as think.

Gadget I’m enjoyingThe Apple Lighting Digital AV adapter. Using our VPN (NordVPN) this gadget enables us to watch the BBC, Netflix and Amazon on our TV through the iPad. The apps think we’re in the UK or the USA (depending which VPN we choose). Currently we’re enjoying Silent Witness from the BBC. It’s not cheap and has some negative reviews around that. Not all reviewers have understood there is technology inside this device and it’s not simply a cable converter.

Happy weekend everyone!
