Speaking of climate change…. (@ this morning’s DOHMH training)

This bible really has been a source of joy!

So far we’ve roasted a whole fish (a la Boulanger) and a whole chicken.

"Blessed Be!" @ PCM ❤❤❤

Kale & Karen @ the People’s Climate March

Crown Fried Chicken™ dinner party @ Kirby’s

House party with Ali Conti and everyone else (no pix - whhhyyyyy!??). This place was across the street from my Bed Stuy apt of ‘07!

Happy birthday Glynis @ Bookmarks

Voila! Zee cake!

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

Freshly baked from Ruby’s Lay-Z Bake Oven: four-tier chocolate cake plus pink crumb layer!

The party isn’t for 48 hours but I wanted to complete as many of the tasks as possible in advance. I baked everything, started the icing, and wrapped it tightly for the freezer. I’ll finish the cake in a rush on Friday evening.

A consultation with the fish monger @ Sea Breeze on 40th and 9th Ave (old timey Hell’s Kitchen vibes)

I’m feeling so romantic right now I just want to cook and (theoretically) garden, etc. Stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before!
