An evening at canlis

Wine cellar at Canlis

Our friends at Canlis went all out last night.

The meal was divine, and the evening was topped off with Brian Canlis giving us a tour of the kitchen and a couple of their wine cellars. Yes, they have more than one. They collectively house over 18,000 bottles with some topping more than $14,000 a bottle. Oh dear.

Thank you Brian and all of the superstars at Canlis.

Ed and Henry

Dogs are a huge source of inspiration for us at Somelab. Like Ryan Holmes, CEO of HootSuite, our dogs also come to work with us every day, fill our days with joy and remind us what is important in life.

Here are 5 management secrets he learned from his dog.

1. Be loyal (but not to a fault).
2. Trust your instincts.
3. Know what you want and be super persistent about getting it.
4. If you’re going to do it, do it 110%.
5. Unplug. Go outside and play.

Tom Waits on the creative process

“It’s very hard to stop doing things you’re used to doing. You almost have to dismantle yourself and scatter it all around and then put a blindfold on and put it back together so that you avoid old habits.”

Coffelt Farm, Orcas Island

Sharing a bit of the personal today.

A couple of months ago, Marcela and I were out on Orcas Island. We love it out there. It’s so dreamy.

While there, we visited Coffelt Farm. The Mission of Coffelt is to demonstrate sustainable, island—scale agricultural practices, promote environmental stewardship, and provide opportunities for education and research, while honoring Orcas Island’s rural heritage.

Over 40 people showed up to see the lambs that had been born that week. As usual, we took lots of pictures and offered them to Cofflet to promote the great work they do.
