A powerful, well-written, heartbreaking essay about a mothers loss of her son to drug addiction.

I ran 10 miles yesterday and it put me on cloud nine. So glad to be back (almost entirely, knock on wood) from my injury, and on the path towards the marathon. And it was great to be running outside again!

Interesting article in the NYTimes today about all the young farmers in Oregon. Love that it's happening, love that I live in this state, and curious to see how many of these people are still farming in 5 or 10 years.

As an easily intimidated cook, I like this blogs idea of recipes with only 5 ingredients. Gonna try them out soon (especially those pizzas, mmm)

Ha! A twist on my love for inspirational posters and whatnot: "Can one learn as much from bad advice as they can from good?
Woods of Wisdom is a ongoing collaborative poster series featuring tips on how to live a terrible life."

“Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. And intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.” - Janet Fitch
