What we’re reading and loving - October ‘21featured image

The world is full of wonders. At moonbird, we like to stay curious. Every month, we highlight those ‘discoveries’ that sparked our interest. Fresh inspiration. We breathe it all in, filling our bodies with new ideas.

The word inspiration is beautiful in itself. On the one hand, it means something that mentally stimulates you. But inspiration also means to breathe in. These two meanings poetically combine when you think of yourself breathing in thoughts, creations and other wonders. Keep breathing, stay inspired.

Here’s what we’re reading and loving in October ‘21.

Listen: Having It All & Other Lies

Listen to Jessica Alba being a guest on Sara Riff’s podcast Having It All & And Other Lies, in which she shares tricks for keeping centered while being pulled in a million directions

Having It All & Other Lies is a show that celebrates the delicate balance between leaning in and falling over as we strive to lead full lives with intention and purpose all whilst keeping at least the majority of our sanity. We talk about letting go of the expectation for perfection, embracing the chaos and realizing that having it all looks very different to each of us.

Watch: Samsara

Watch this kaleidoscopic, non-verbal documentary from filmmakers Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, it’s truly mesmerizing.

Filmed over nearly five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, and shot on seventy-millimeter film, Samsara transports us to the varied worlds of sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial complexes, and natural wonders.

Do: Change a Life

Can you lend as little as $25? With Kiva you can make a big change in someone's life and support causes you care about.

Kiva envisions a financially inclusive world where all people hold the power to improve their lives. More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.

Watch: Friendly Fridges

Watch this documentary about the colorful community fridges in New York City, with free food to feed those who are struggling.

During the lockdown they were suddenly there: dozens of colorfully painted community fridges, neighborhood fridges, on the streets of New York. Neighbors and shopkeepers put in what they have left. Homeless people, the unemployed, and others who can no longer make ends meet, take out what they need.
