" there is no in-between, just shades of gray "

---

you're kidding yourself if you think there will always be perfect moments only. no one is going to hand you the keys to the castle. no one will sweep you off your feet. no one will pluck you out from the crowd to do the cash-grab booth game. no one will tell you you are special or loved or your words meaningful or you in any way make any difference in the world by your presence.

you're kidding yourself if you think that perfect moments do not exist. people will surprise you with their good nature. they will show you kindness when you're in need of it. they will share their belongings, food, a lift, and even their home. good people will come into your life and you will feel so much of their love, your heart will never be less than full. they will hold you close and stay with you until you realize that you are one of the most integral people on our planet, and they couldn't ever see this all being the same experience without you in it.

" the carnivore's manifesto "

---

big ups to mr. patrick martins of slow food USA and heritage foods USA, on the debut of his new book, "the carnivore's manifesto, eating well, responsibly, and eating meat."

if you dig on delicious, sustainable, and informed meat consumption, this is pretty much your new bible.

and a nice super high five to his lovely wife anne saxelby who's reputation in the cheese world is extensive and prolific. peep out both of their dope stores at the essex street market in manhattan.

...i'm hungry now.
