A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

5 career lessons from culinary icon Ina Garten. "I was 50 years old and I thought that the best years of my career were over . . . when I thought my professional career was over, it hadn’t even started yet." [Forbes]

The art of daily ritual: keeping sane in an insane world. "While collective, once-in-a-lifetime rituals — the sort of rites of passage that we mark through mammoth wedding parties and drunken, tear-filled wakes — are key to meaning-making on a grand scale, it's the smaller, daily rituals that keep us going." [On Being]

The creative apocalypse that wasn't. "Just as there are more avenues for consumers to pay for creative work, there are more ways to be compensated for making that work." [The New York Times]

The Big Dig: Istanbul's city planners have a problem — too much history. "In addition to the ships, tens of thousands of museum-worthy objects turned up in the harbor: a fourth-century marble Apollo, an ivory carving of the Virgin Mary, a nineteenth-century emerald necklace that someone had dropped in the harbor." [The New Yorker]

Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:

Engagement season kicks off on Thanksgiving at the end of November, so I'll be teaching a series of online classes each Tuesday in October to help you get your business ready. I'll be covering marketing and selling to millennials, selling to affluent millennials for those of you who work in luxury weddings, as well as a bonus class on working with millennials as employees. I'll be presenting new research and insights, so even if you've seen me speak before, this will still be largely new information. Early bird pricing is currently available and you can sign up for as many classes as you'd like, including a special early bird bundle of buy 3, get one free.
