This blog has never been about any one thing. I don’t have the attention span or focus for that. But I do tend to discuss (or photograph and think a lot about) food and cooking. We need to eat to live so yeah, it’s on my mind. Though I have a tendency to make it more personal, unlike many food bloggers. Maybe I reveal too much. But I prefer to hear what something may mean to someone and why. And I have been ruminating about and revising just such a blog post for several weeks now. Hoping to finish formulating these thoughts soon and to push them out into the world. It won’t be all-encompassing but more of a snapshot of what I’ve come to think and believe, and a blueprint for how I plan to continue on that path. In the mean time? Tuesday’s five good things (including one somewhat terrifying tidbit):
- Too much of a good thing…artist Benjamin Hammond’s one minute portraits were featured in Cool Hunting. The story was picked up by NPR and now his poor site has exceeded its bandwidth limit. Doh.
- I adore author Margaret Atwood, and am a fan of reading about dystopian, postpandemic worlds, in general. An interview with her in The Globe on “why she sees more reason than ever to fear a horrible future” Not exactly happy happy joy joy.
- Tall Ships are coming! “If you’d like to see eight magnificent vessels that harken back to the early days of maritime, set your sails for Duluth July 28-August 3.”
- The Guild Goes Bollywood - just what I needed this morning.
- How very odd. “Terry Gilliam to Direct Arcade Fire Madison Square Garden Live Webcast” Could be interesting, for sure.
Right now it’s time to scarf down the lunch contained within Mr. Bento. And to look ahead to tonight’s kid-free dinner (which means being able to choose a restaurant that my picky kid “hates”). Tanpopo Noodle Shop? I don’t like the idea of it being in peril. Or perhaps the newly relocated Heartland? Gandhi Mahal? Namaste? All options sound good to me right now. All at once. Yum.
