down by the river

I love biking to the river, descending the steps and sitting on the shore. The water is so calming.

good things going on

the zombie game
bare legs for the first time in months and months
girls and pet bunnies
little boys in goggles

she was a phantom of delight

she was a phantom of delight
when first she gleam'd upon my sight
a lovely apparition, sent
to be a moment's ornament
her eyes as stars of twighlight fair
like twilight's, too, her dusky hair
but all things else about her drawn
from may-tine and the cheerful dawn
a dancing shape leading away
to haunt, to startle, and waylay

weekend retreat in the chichibu mountains

obsessing over this weekend retreat in japan

often times i have the desire to be in the countryside
get away from the hustle of the city
growing up in the country has stayed with me
it probably always will
a blend of both seems ideal
i love the city and the country
this idea is building a dream

Is Sugar Toxic?

Gary Taubes wrote an extremely interesting article for The New York Times about how our bodies process and react to sugar and how sugar consumption ultimately affects our long-term health. Read it here.
