Quote I’m pondering: “Take away the complaint, ‘I have been harmed,’ and the harm is taken away.” — Marcus Aurelius

Purchase I’m loving: This isn’t a product, but a subscription—I have grown to really appreciate my Planet Fitness membership. Beyond going to the gym twice a week—which is nice and all—Planet Fitness has proved an invaluable travel-hack. I recently took an impromptu road trip to Denver to see an Odesza concert at Red Rocks, then up to Chicago to see a friend, and Planet Fitness showers and massages made it possible.

What I’m looking at: My best friend Román Maksimov is an incredible photographer. Recently, while in Florida, he gave me the full portraiture experience, and it’s not one I shall soon forget. For months, I’ve found myself looking at all his photographs for their acute realism and personality. See some of his work here.

What I’m listening to: Another album that’s not new, The Magic Position by South-Londoner Patrick Wolf. My highlights from the 2005 album include four of the first five songs: Overture, The Magic Position, Accident & Emergency, and Bluebells.
