Sights & Sounds: CD Community
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the journal will come at least twice a month.
The seasons are starting to shift from autumn to winter, and we too are changing gears—we are slowing down and easing into the closing of this year and the beginnings of next year.
Alex and I have been chatting and reflecting over the last few weeks on how much the project has grown this past year. We often come together and resonate on how it feels like a mutual exchange—every week we put something out and it creates a ripple effect within the CD community and beyond.
Following the recent introduction of Substack chat, we decided to make the most of the feature by starting a thread for people to contribute to Sights & Sounds. As promised, we picked a few of our favourites to share this week.
Thank you to everyone who contributed and continues to tune in week over week! 💙
Thanks for consuming!
