Particularly interesting to me because of the Whole30 - I've definitely noticed the effects of sugar on my mental and emotional health for a long time: Do Carbs Make You Crazy?: Evidence that blood glucose and dietary carbohydrate affect mood.

Recently read and enjoyed in the NY Review of Books: Willard Mitt Romney, and The New World of William Carlos Williams.

Last night a friend and I watched "Beginners," and I cannot reccomend it highly enough. My big warning would be that it is somewhat challenging to face life once realizing that I'll never be Melanie Laurent, that Christopher Plummer isnt my dad/bff/roommate, and that I don't own that dog....Seriously, though, great movie.

“People sometimes ask me, ‘If things are so bad, why don’t you just kill yourself?’ The answer is that life is really, really good. I am a complex enough being that I can hold in my heart the understanding that we are really, really fucked, and at the same time that life is really, really good. I am full of rage, sorrow, joy, love, hate, despair, happiness, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, and a thousand other feelings. We are really fucked. Life is still really good.” - Derrick Jensen
