Product I’m excited about: Purple sweet potatoes have reappeared at Whole Foods.
A quote I found helpful, particularly given the current political/media climate: “Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”—Marcus Aurelius.
The blog post that most piqued my interest: “The Secret Life of Trees”—Another tree article? Yep. As you read, consider the dichotomy between the organic, bottoms-up nature of tree community support systems and the government-ordained, top-down system we have. Which is more Primal?
My favorite fun (and also mindblowing) fact of the week: The universe contains 10 times more galaxies than previously thought (PDF).
