Haiku Journey

Short, long, summary of a life

People…

People. People who call themselves

by a name, a label.

People who place themselves

at the head of the table.

People who invoke for themselves

some elusive power.

People who see themselves

as the need of the hour.

People who see themselves

Worthy of all honor.

Who see their god as helpless, ineffective,

in Towers imagine,

Themselves above all others.

see ya 2015

A little slow in getting this up, but here is a shot of all of my sketches done in 2015*. It was a sketch-filled year alright, with a large bulk coming in the middle, on my sketching trip to France…

Drifting through other blogs on WordPress can kill hours of the night but also be whimsical, wrenching, or fun. So tonight Pete Scully’s wrap up of 2015 is both whimsical and fun and definitely worth going to the source to explore.

The WordPress.com Blog

The 2015 edition of the Automattic Worldwide WP 5k (#WWWP5k) is around the corner!

Automatticians already hit the trail at our company meetup last week. It was early — the sun was barely peeking behind the mountains in Park City, Utah — but the air was crisp and the morning was perfect for running a 5k. (Staying fit is an important part of our company culture.)

Ode to Trees

Ancient trees speak to me… Thanks to everyone who inspired the Lady Calen to post this and introduce, I hope, Herman Hesse to other readers. And to the Reader for bringing it my way.

Impromptu Promptlings

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”~Hermann Hesse~

Along with some impressive pictures she’s taken, Spiritual Dragonfly posted this beautiful quote about trees from Hermann Hesse’s book Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte on her blog today. (I will not pretend to know what that means!) She was kind enough to pull out the bit in the book it was taken from for me to post.

I love trees of all kinds because they provide what every person needs: roots for knowing who you are and where you came from, and tall branches from which to sprout your wings and fly knowing you’ll always be able to shelter there. It’s a very common theme when we’re talking about things we…

Crawfish Bisque

Crawdads boiled, crawdads steamed, crawdads fried, crawdads bisque, what’s next? Crawdads heaven!!

The Domestic Man

About this time last year, I posted a Blue Crab and Chipotle Tabasco Bisque that quickly because one of my most-cooked soups (and this is coming from a guy who cooks a lot of soup). I’ve been playing around with the formula a bit, to the point where I felt it was appropriate to post another one using shellfish (and that Shellfish Stock recipe from last week).

Quick reminder – I am giving away eight $25 Costco gift cards, and the giveaway ends on Thursday, so jump on it if you haven’t already.

And now for the big news: I found out that my cookbook, Paleo Takeout, made it onto the New York Timesbest seller list for July! How cool is that? Now I need to go through all of my social media profiles and add my new title to everything. I’m super excited and tremendously…
