How to Find Attention, Mindfulness, and Creativity in the Ordinary

This is a great TED talk, delivered by Bill Keaggy, a visual storyteller from St. Louis, MO. When we were much younger, Bill and I worked together at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I always admired his creativity and perspective — both on display in this talk.

Jason Segal as David Foster Wallace

Harrison Ford told me about this movie. I saw him interviewed about his new Apple TV show, Shrinking (also recommended). that features Jason Segel. Ford mentioned two movies. he liked, starring Segal. The End of the Tour was one of them.

Segel portrays author David Foster Wallace after he released his most celebrated novel, Infinite Jest. Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky (played by Jesse Eisenberg) spends five days with Wallace, interviewing him and just hanging out. 

If you know and like Wallace’s work, this is must-see. If you don’t there’s still plenty to enjoy and learn.
