As I mentioned in my philosophy, intention, meaning, and purpose is at the center of “the human experience.” Understanding this world, the emotional world, comes from studying liberal arts and humanities. Poetry. Literature. Film. Many great works written a hundred years ago still feel relevant today or like modern works – that’s because the fundamental human experience, at a core, has remained the same. In rapidly changing environments and societies, it’s easy to lose sight of what we once knew. Regardless of what your day job is, this is my collection of stuff worth watching/reading.
