She was still a teenager when she first arrived. She became the closest thing to a sibling for the only child in the house. The child always eagerly waited to play with her after she’s done working, sometimes even took naps inside her room in the attic. The room smelled like the sun, day and night. One day she left to get married, then the house left too, then the child left too. There’s very little to remember, but it lasted a long, long time.

The Mitch Marner Retrospective

So, Mitch Marner. Mitch is the 2015 first round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs, for those unaware. He plays for the London Knights in the OHL and came second in scoring last season, three points behind his bff Dylan Strome (but having played five fewer games!). But now I sound like Wikipedia, so LET’S GET TO THE GOOD STUFF.

I kind of want to pat 15-year-old Mitch on the head. He was so sweet?? I think I’m so charmed because he reminds me of the dudes I went to high school with.

The funny thing about ambitions is that they aren’t always what you’d think. It’s not uncommon for ambitions to be selfish, but it’s equally as common to have ambitions that are to help others, to improve some part of the world, to make something not solely for personal gain. Because, after all, the best world and humanitarian leaders and inventors are ambitious as well in some way.

Opening Friday, Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium is the Brazilian artist’s first full-scale U.S. retrospective in two decades. The exhibition captures the excitement, complexity, and activist nature of Oiticica’s art, focusing on the decisive period he spent in New York in the 1970s.

Members can experience Oiticica’s immersive installations first during preview days this Wednesday and Thursday. Join today!
