The Matchbook | 11.11.22
Little Bits Of Light
It be 11/11 and so I decided to send this Matchbook at 11:11 just to keep with the theme…so, if you’re wondering why it’s a bit late, that’s why, 11:11 on 11/11, why not? Anyhow, here’s some rad crap you might dig. I hope ya do.

Here’s the scoop, kids:
A Journey Into The Animal Mind - If you know me at all, you know I love animals more than humans (yeah, sorry) and that I always have. This insightful little gem of an article jumps into consciousness (ours) and what we know of that when it comes to the animal world. Basically, they are far more than we ever thought, and deserve our kindness even more than you might believe. Oof.
2022 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards - Like I said, I love animals, and you know I love photography. Here’s a combination of both, with a little dose of humor. Which is your favorite? Mine may be this, because what’s funnier than streaking vultures?:
Great Things Never Come From Comfort Zones - Long I’ve said it, if we wanna get to the great stuff, we gotta get the hell out of our comfort zones. That’s the simple version, this article dives much deeper, and has so much insight it hurts. Stretch your boundaries friends, all the beauty lives there.
The Friendliest Countries In The World - Looking for a next vacation and don’t know where to wander? How about to one of these countries, as they are all the friendliest on the entire planet. Couldn’t we all use a little more kindness? Hmm? Maybe the USA needs to step up their game, as we’re not even close to making it on. Yikes.
Pothole Art - If you’ve been to Montana you know, after a winter here we’re quite literally the land of potholes. More than anything, you feel the bone rattling, spine aching, car risking bang. This guy, this wonderful artist, decided to fill the holes in his town up, in a rad and unconventional way. I dig it. Come here now, kind sir.
I Knew This Would Be Love(Piano) by Imaginary Futures - Just jaw-droppingly beautiful. This song makes me feel lots of things.
I love you all.
