snuck away to barnes and noble with omar and pored over:
various wendell berry books – the unsettling of america: culture and agriculture, what are people for?: essays, and sex, economy, freedom & community: eight essays.
a really thought-provoking/conversation-inducing christianity today article on the branding and commercialization of western christianity and jesus by tyler wigg stevenson. stevenson’s book brand jesus: christianity in a consumerist age is now on my to-read list.
the three-month old daughter of friends. i even got to give the little pink blanketed babe her bottle.
got quite cold. the high was somewhere around 40.
experienced cold/dry weather induced static for the first time in years.
ate a panettone bread pudding lovingly made by my mom.
was interrupted during bread pudding photo shoot by a coffee wielding dad.
