The mountains, the ski resorts, the crowded national parks bore me.  Take me East to wide open spaces.  Show me something interesting.  A working place.  Tell me about flash grazing - which I found hilarious - envisioning hundreds of cows rushing past the signs demanding we stay on the trail.  A town of  500 people, and they are worried the humans are going to crush the grass.


Link List - January 2017

These links come a bit early in the month but I just read the best book ever and that is reason enough to share.

The book:  Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption  I've read several books on the death penalty,  justice system and race, but this was written with so much humanity, strength and compassion that I cannot recommend it enough.  

Meals I've loved this week:  Black Eyed Pea Curry and Coconut Broccoli Soup

Photographer I would like to learn more about: Kati Horna

I'm not one to share wildlife footage, but wow:  Iguana vs Snakes

Time to clear the clutter: Give Back Box.  While I'm not a huge fan of Goodwill, I am a fan of things not going in the trash.  I'll be sending another box today.
