Things that make me happy 2.0
Joe Tombari: 'The best thing about the game is that it has kept us in touch over all these years.' Photograph: Patrick Kehoe for the Guardian As teenagers, a group of friends and I spent every spare moment at school playing tag. The game developed into more than just chasing each other round the playground; it involved strategy and cunning. But when I failed to tag someone in the last moments before school broke up for summer – he'd locked himself in his car to avoid it – I resigned myself to for ever being "it". We all went our separate ways, off to college or moving away for work, so the game fizzled out. Experience: I've played a game of tag for 23 years | Life and style

Get a regular-sized envelope. Address it to someone special. Then, stuff it with as many things as you can: a letter, photographs, ripped out magazine articles, photocopies of poems, a short story, or passages from a novel, recipes, clipped newspaper articles, art work, poems or stories you’ve written… Anything that can be folded up and put in the envelope. Make sure to stuff it so full that you need to use tape to keep it sealed. This envelope should have serious heft. Once it’s sealed, get the proper postage put on it (definitely use stamps) and mail it off. Project #29
Project #5 Make some art, maybe a photograph or a painting or a drawing. Put the art in a nice frame, one that isn’t brand new. Then, hang your framed art in a place you aren’t suppose to, but where people will assume it is supposed to be, like the lobby of your apartment building, in the hallway at your office, on the smallest wall in a motel room, in the quiet corner of a library, outside the downstair’s restroom at a restaurant or bar, the back room of a club, in the bathroom of a museum.

52 Projects – Resources NOTE: This resources list originally appeared in the 52 Projects book, which was published in 2005. I updated the list in Oct. 2009, as links to some of the websites listed no longer worked. Following is a list of 52 resources for inspiration. The list includes websites, books, magazines, zines, stories, albums and more. Some of the items provide how-to information, others invite you to participate. A few require you to do some digging.
A few weeks ago I ran across a list, which I shared with you, of 33 Ways to Stay Creative. One suggestion was to read a page in the dictionary. That one stuck with me. Eat. Live. Laugh. and sometimes shop!: 50 most beautiful English words.

July 21st, 2011 – Perched on the hillside atop the waters of Pretty Beach, on the Bouddi Peninsula, just north of Sydney, is a surreal tree house called The Pretty House. The exclusive seven-acre property encompasses three one-bedroom pavilions that surround the main home. Each pavilion is rented out to guests who are lavished with an in-house chef, treetop views of the sparkling Brisbane waters, private decks for sunbathing, a wine cellar, heated pool, and a stunning 38 foot yacht to explore the waters (swoon!). The interiors are modern and saturated in warm, earthy color tones. It’s as if an old world traveler left his 1930′s travel trunks, hand crafted tables, fine Belgium linens behind and trinkets that document his adventures. Jet Off To Australia’s Pretty Beach House |

This fairytale castle is the historical seat of the Prussian Kings and German Emperors. Its origin dates back to the Middle Ages - it was built in the 11th century, then completely destroyed in 1423 and reconstructed in 1461. The view from the castle that stands on top of Mount Hohenzollern (855 m) is as stunning as the complex itself. 15 Amazing Castles from Around the Globe
