We’ve heard of the trend in “camp” style weddings for a few years, but now those who get nostalgic for their summer camp days can relive the experience of bunk beds, s’mores, and arts and crafts – without having to also attend a wedding. Camp Grounded is, quite simply, a summer camp for adults – hosted by the company Digital Detox, which specializes in retreats and getaways for those who need to experience life sans technology. Modeled entirely after kids’ camps, the June event in the Anderson Valley of CA also offers meditation and yoga sessions, in additon to capture the flag. A key component is giving up the work world, and all devices, encouraging participants to enjoy their surroundings and experiences.

Bookshelf: What We’re Reading


There’s a lot happening these days at Wert&Co.–reflected in six books we would like to share with you. We’ve been preparing for a few talks and seeking to understand ourselves and our work more deeply, finding inspiration from the self discovery of childhood to the wisdom (hopefully) gained over the years. This month we also mourned the loss of John Berger who’s seminal Ways of Seeing provided us not just with a tool to view art in a revolutionary way, but a tool to understand critically the images that surround us. Finally with data ruling the day, in both politics and our work, we’ve found ourselves recently in a deep dive on both the mechanics, design and ethics of this fascinating subject.


Oh yes, the planet is sublime!


I have a crazy,
crazy love of things.
I like pliers,
and scissors.
I love
and bowls –
not to speak, of course,
of hats.
I love
all things,
not just
the grandest,
and flower vases.
Oh yes,
the planet
is sublime!
