This week, I stumbled across a phrase I had long loved, but written in symbols and it became even more loved. It is not a surprise that the phrase and philosophy behind it stems from the Bauhaus Movement.
The name of the movement comes from a German design school of the same name that was in operation from 1919 to 1933. The movement created a lot of fine art, architecture, and furniture that is widely appreciated and still considered modern 100 years later. There was a coffee shop in Seattle for 20 odd years by the same name that was my all-time favorite and the band Bauhaus has a soft spot in my heart as a reminder of the angst-ridden teen that eventually found his way to become me.
So it is no surprise to me that the phrase written in symbols comes from The Bauhaus Movement.
Also this week, Waldina hit 1,000 subscribers! With a combination of email and WordPress followers, the total hit 1,000 some time at the beginning of the week. While thinking about what that means is a huge humbling honor, I also used it as a reminder to myself to keep the Waldina ‘brand’ true. This website is a place where I chronicle what inspires me. It flows over into my instagram and twitter accounts as well. All this reflection caused me to nuke the mostly-written original Week In Review: a scathing ‘tribute’ to Karl Lagerfeld. A fairy old post about him is getting a lot of hits even this morning. But that is not on brand, even though a fairly good argument could be waged that David Rakoff does inspire me and the meat of the post was a quote written by him about Karl.
