Throwback Blog Series: Blog Influences

I recently stumbled across old blog post from 2007 – 2010. They show how our past is often more similar to our present than we thought it would be. So I’ve created the “Throwback Blog Series” to unearth these ideas and stories. Hope you enjoy the journey back through time over the coming month.

Blog Influences

Something beautiful is brewing in 2010.  Not quite sure what it is, but I think the movies we watch, the books we read and the CDs we buy are just a few of the things that shape how we view the world.  So I am sharing the new ones pieces of art and culture that I am digesting.  If you have read something that changed the way you see the world, please leave a post!
