the focus isn’t so much on the appliances as it is on interacting with his community. “I have to be honest, when you go telling people you want to save the world, they often say, ‘That sounds nice, but I don’t have the time,’” he said. “But if there is this aspect of, ‘Do you want your toaster fixed, and while you’re having that done, can we talk about saving the world?’ they tend to be more receptive.”

We had a lot of fun visiting Wolfe’s Neck Center in Freeport today. Excited to go for a hayride in the fall!

When a toddler busts into your bedroom in the wee hours of the morning, weeping, saying that they're "scared of the mac and cheese," and that they need to eat some mac and cheese is there anything to do other than making mac and cheese for breakfast?

...also, what kind of terrifying mac and cheese dreams is this kid having!?

Platforms like YouTube often embody the "fast web": deep, black voids of mindless entertainment. But they can also give us access to a world much wider than our own. Hidden within the systems designed to capture your eyeballs and seize your attention, there is also a capacity to watch slowly and mindfully.

A little over a week into the Whole30

I'm not typically one for fad diets, but when I'm asked to jump I know it's best to respond "how high?"

So far the Whole30 has been kind of fun. I like doing things that force me to notice things I otherwise wouldn't. So far the biggest revelation is that I eat A LOT of beans. I've been a vegetarian for most of my life, and beans are a staple in my food ecosystem. As a vegetarian, the Whole30 is kinda scarce on the protein front. I typically eat dairy and eggs, too, so I've kept eating eggs while doing, on, in the midst of? the Whole30.

I've been researching alternative sources of veggie proteins, though.

Another fun side of the Whole30 is that I've been experimenting with other preparations of food. Zoodles, grilled eggplant, etc.

The dark side of the Whole30 was mos def the first three days. Those were dark times. Coming down from grains is always a "fun" trip for me. Normally, I eat a lot of grains and nuts. Now, I eat even more nuts.

All in all I'm excited to keep at it, but don't think that the Whole30 is a logical diet for longer than one month.

Have you done the Whole30 or something similar? Got any good recipes?

Whatever their place in the taxonomies of buildings, fountains are distinguished from other urban monuments by one essential element: water. 10 From the perspective of architecture history, this factor complicates both the design and experience of these structures; for it requires that the traditional cognitive scheme involving the object and the viewer be replaced by a more complex phenomenological triad consisting of architecture, water, and the body.

I used our spiralizer for the first time this evening. It was a lot of fun to use — heaps easier than using a mandolin...and the zoodles were delicious!
