Seven Things in Seven Years

When her site turned 7 years old, Maria Popova (founder and editor of Brain Pickings) found herself questioning how she would stay true to her focus, as the work she produced evolved.  In October of 2013, she put out a great essay on her reflections and all the lessons she’s learned in “7 Things I Learned in 7 years of Reading, Writing, and Living.” It’s an incredible and focused list of small verses that have massive meaning behind it.

About a year and change later, the good folks over at Dissolve created a video surrounding the essay.  Animation, orchestral music, and moving imagery really make this essay come to life – one of my favorites here on Silo Number Seven.
