Navigating Stuckness

A Twitter-shaped short story, Google's new Nest, Four Tet's "Thriller" and more in our weekly look at the web

Talented artist, writer, speaker and thinker Jonathan Harris beautifully and heartbreakingly describes the familiar feeling of “stuckness” (and everything that goes along with it) in his most recent essay. Chapter by chapter Harris writes about life events and how they affected and motivated (or, indeed, de-motivated) him. It’s universal, the way that “the low points are actually thrilling because the high points are about to come back, and how the high points are actually terrifying, because the low points always come next”—and that’s OK.
