perfect present

Lovely things

 

 

Curated just for you by educateria

 

 

1. A guide to understanding your lived experience and yourself

The newly-relmetaphysical dictionaryeased Metaphysical Dictionary by Svetlana Lilova is profound, whimsical and wise, delightfully illustrated by Graham Falk. At her recent book launch at Centennial College, the author described how, newly-arrived in Canada and never having heard spoken English, she traversed the city with a dictionary in hand. Fast-forward many years, and Lilova offers us a compass, a roadmap, a mirror and a prism through which we can distill our lived experience and inner selves in this small, elegant volume.

Order here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. A constant reminder

Inspirational sayings and quotations are always welcome, particularly expressed in everyday items. We are continuously exposed to a deluge of unsolicited and counter-productive messaging, and these are a welcome antidote.

3. Your very own power source

Your phone is at 2% power and no outlet in sight…and you’re scheduled to join a conference call in five minutes. Enter the charging block. Until nearly every surface integrates device charging, this is what we need circa 2016. Available here.

I am a big fan of HONY. The latest book by photographic census-taker Brandon Stanton reminds us that the singular is universal. Ordering information here.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Fall asleep under the stars

The Star Map Projector Dome (available in your choice of southern or northern hemispheres) evokes the magic and mystery of laying on a dock at night and looking up at the sky. Not very practical in December, so this is the next best thing. Check it out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May your days be merry and bright!
