Beauty in the Dissonance

Posted on

We all vibrate on certain gradients of energy. The world is spinning and here we are, buoyant with the currents of electric charge all varying in grades of frequency. Like attracts like and we are pulled to one another by this charged beauty, almost unexplained yet completely understood. This is how I feel when I am reached by someone’s writing. They touch me in a way that’s goes beyond the surface and into much deeper crevices of my heart and soul. It’s not every day… Read More

Liver Meat Squares

Posted on

        Many people are totally repelled by the thought of eating liver. My mother is one of those people. She grew up in a household where liver and onions was a prized staple at the family dinner table, not only that, but there were strict rules about eating your meal, drinking your milk and not being allowed from the table until the plate was clear. Imagine how she felt as she sat at the table loathing the liver and onions before her,… Read More

Bottle Feeding Lambs

  “Know your food, know your farmers, and know your kitchen.” – Joel Salatin Most Saturday’s I walk over to the farmers market from my house, and even if I don’t buy anything I’m looking for conversation. The beauty of markets such as these lies in the construction of a community, it’s the weaving together of people from various backgrounds for one common goal; to sell their goods to people in the area because they believe in what they produce. Buying locally takes on a… Read More

  When my mom and step-dad got married I remember as a nine-year old being sad that they were going to leave my sister and I for entire week while on their honeymoon.

At the time we lived in Belgium, they were off to honeymoon in Spain and my great Aunt was in town from York, England with her friend to take care of us. The morning after the wedding I begrudgingly came down the stairs… Read More

You’ll Never Know Your Worth

Posted on

Do you get the feeling when you’re overcome with excitement and you can’t sit still, can’t focus, can’t sleep? In these moments I have to remind myself to breathe. Literally, ten seconds will have passed and I’ll be saying, “Breathe! Like really before you pass out,” in my head. Since the start of the New Year these feelings have consumed me. It’s as if everything I’m working towards is on the verge of coming alive. And I can say “I made this happen!!” It’s not… Read More
