Good morning mouse clickers, web surfers and work procrastinators! I am happy to provide you with today’s fine entertainment, especially considering that this morning I dodged a bullet. 4am was privy to some very suspicious coughing, gagging and stomach heaving by one very small person. As I sat up to nurse her in a less vomit inducing position, I felt major unrest going on in that little belly and I thought “This is it. This is one of those first parenting moments. She’s totally going to puke all over my boob. And you know what? It’s ok. I can handle it. Oh, I better make sure I hold my breath…” Jeff ran to get a bowl because she TOTALLY would have been able to aim her projectile split pea soup into a 5 inch diameter. And then…
Nothing. Her stomach quieted down and she went back to sleep. SCORE! It’s gonna be a good day.

My friend Chiara turned me on to this blog. Not only does it give me a major case of life envy, but she’s got a good writing style and incredible information on herbalism, foraging and rewilding. She is a teacher at the Anima Lifeways School. The school has a blog where I read this post on the importance of living your dreams. This isn’t new agey follow your bliss….the author thinks your life depends on it. Very cool.

This is basic stuff. Even a “normal, well adjusted” housewife from the 1950s gets it. (It’s a fascinating 8 minutes…just ignore the bad advertisement segway at the end.)
Skydiving with a falcon to measure their dive velocity. Is 242 miles per hour fast enough for you?
Oh Ricky, I love you.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to be this small?
