LIVE LONG:

Keep moving.

BE STRONG:

Keep moving. Do work you enjoy.  Walk, make art. We need to do our own versions of  “chop wood, carry water.”

READ A BOOK:

I read a lot as in several books at a time—a few novels and much non-fiction. My book pile is continually growing (with gratitude to Annye for her ever-perfect book gifts and store’s mini-library). I taught non-fiction at Syracuse and so it remains my favorite genre: Autobiography, Memoir, Travel Writing, Culture Theory. I also have a collection of art and interior design books. I enjoy re-reading favorites for the continually different perspectives. Favorite re-reads: Fierce Attachments; White Teeth; The English Patient; the first Chapter of Jane Eyre.

EAT WELL: 

Eat organic, non-GMO, raw, and unprocessed. Avoid sugar and salt whenever possible (unfortunately added to most processed food). Read food labels. I love fruits and vegetables: berries, especially raspberries, pears and the giant summer-peaches at Annye’s. I also eat raw spinach every day and add to omelets along with the best cheese ever: Bellwether Basket Ricotta.

I am happily addicted to coffee especially The Organic Coffee Company’s Java Love. Love grinding the beans, pressing, and adding hot milk and a bit of honey. Fortunately,  (according to recent media reports) the benefits of drinking coffee seem to be increasing.

CELEBRATE:

Music, Movies, and local theater and bands.
