From dreaming up big concepts to fine-tuning tiny details, Megan does it all. Actually, to Megan, the little things aren’t always so little. Check: Whenever she makes a salad, she chops at least one ingredient into the exact number of pieces as there are people eating. Five people, five radish pieces. That way, there’s a chance everyone will taste the exact same thing—at the same time. Savor that image. A designer’s sense of proportion married to the wisdom of a guru. If we zoom out to the International Space Station, we meet one of Megan’s heroes, commander Col. Chris Hadfield, author of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth. “It’s a great read and full of advice for making good use of life here on terra firma.” Speaking of heroes, there’s also Hannah Shaw (aka Kitten Lady), rescuer of orphaned kittens. Because, teaches Kitten Lady, even the tiniest lives are worth saving. And let’s not forget Megan’s other treasured book, All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon. “It’s a beautiful celebration of the big and little things in life.” Of course.
