A friend of mine said that this blog is a bit like looking at shiny things. "Here's something fun to look at" or "did you see that?" I know it can be a bit random here, but the goal is to collect some things that are interesting and cool and wonderful and put them in this one place called dear ada.
I realize I've never explained why this blog is named dear ada. Ada was a very important person in my life and we shared a love for art, nature, design and culture. She was the most positive, curious, interested person I've ever known and this blog is a bit like a series of letters or notes to her, and everyone else, about some of the things that seem pretty amazing to me. Or funny, sparkling, sweet, strange, mundane, random, thoughtful, or beautiful too. I figure, you can never have too much of this kind of stuff in your life, so I'm always looking for more of it. It's as simple as that. In the spirit of looking at life the way that Ada did, I want to keep holding up stuff and saying, "isn't this amazing"?
