Friday, it's Friday!

My head is still full of NYC - I've only been back a few days, days spent doing laundry, running errands and general catching up with life. I took a few hundred photos that I will go through and pick the best to show you next week. Only the best for you my dear readers, only the best for you. 
    
When I find something inspiring, I just have to share it with you. If it's Friday morning, grab a coffee and take a look at what I've found this past week. And if it's Friday night, perhaps a glass of sauvignon blanc will do the trick. Let's go.
   

The New York City Municipal Archives just released a database of over 870,000 photos from its collection of more than 2.2 million images of New York throughout the 20th century. Their subjects include daily life, construction, crime, city business, aerial photographs, and more. What an archive of photos.

Melanie of Inward Facing Girl captured a bit of the blogger zeitgeist in a post this week when she asked how we manage our time. To add to the mix here's a view of work/life balance from Orson Welles. Perhaps he was foreshadowing social media when work and life blend together - what do you think?

Remember the West Wing? And how creator Aaron Sorkin invented the "walk and talk"? Here's a Funny or Die video using some of the cast in a "walk and talk" promoting daily walking.

    
"There is no such thing as failure" and 11 other things that you weren't taught in school about creativity but should have been!
    
Performance art has intrigued me for years - here's a series of photos documenting a "lost astronaut" in NYC.
    
So what's on deck for your weekend? Over here we're going to a cinqo de mayo party and a house concert (professional musicians in your home). I'll be taking an Alt class on Saturday morning but not before I haul myself out of bed and go to a spinning class. Probably a playground or two and bikes therein as well.
   
See you Monday!
