I decluttered my email subscriptions recently but there a few remaining emails I look forward to each week and Brain Pickings is one of them. It’s the brainchild of Maria Popova, a self-described ‘reader, writer, interestingness hunter-gatherer, and curious mind at large’. She puts a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, inquiring into how to live and what it means to lead a good life. Read more about Brain Pickings here. A good place to start to get a feel for her work is at the seven things she’s learned in seven years of reading, writing, and living. If you like it, sign up for her weekly newsletter which offers the week’s most unmissable articles across creativity, psychology, art, science, design, philosophy, and other facets of our search for meaning.
