00:55:46    Natalie Beck:    One book that Nick has mentioned before - came to mind when you asked if there are any books about not being successful: “What I Learned Losing A Million Dollars” by Jim Paul and Brandan Moynihan …but maybe this book was a success…haha!

01:15:05    Tania Carpio:    my dad just sent me a link to the performance we just watched… I guess it’s a message I needed to hear

01:35:10    Natalie Beck:    “The rush and pressure of modern life are a form perhaps the most common form of contemporary violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone and everything is to succumb to the violence of our times.” -Thomas Merton

01:39:56    juliejensen:    so beautiful Natalie

01:02:17    Michael Ian Cedar:    Why did he wrote “cow” on the cow? I didn’t understand…
