A periodic news and reading round-up
(or: the most interesting, weird and worthwhile ways I procrastinated of late).
I have a horrible case of tsundoku and I fear that you may, too.
I ran for the first time in a year. The mythical runner’s high continues to elude me, though every man – and his dog – seems to get it. I carry on regardless (for now).
“Two girls in silk kimonos. Both / beautiful, one a gazelle.” A fascinating portrait of Constance and Eva Gore-Boothe, immortalized by Yeats, but so much more than beautiful.
Finally! Lay versus Lie. I get it now.
Onions, Strawberries, Kiwifruit, Celery, Brazil Nuts, Cashew Nuts, Beetroot, Broccolli, Chile Peppers, Bell Peppers, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Cucumber, Lemons, Cardamom. If you’ve eaten any of these lately – or just about anything else – you have a bee to thank!
Actually. Thank you is not enough. It only takes a second to sign this petition and tell the EPA to intervene and Save our Bees!
Also. Listen to this song called Honeybee. It’s s’lovely.
