Diggin'

sunset cinque terra

Hi y'all! Weekend time is here again, and I'm slowly chipping away at this list I've accumulated over the past several months of things from around the internet that have caught my eye and thought were worth sharing. I told a friend of mine that I was going to start posting two times a week, and I also said I didn't want to post two days in a row, but one out of two ain't bad. Baby steps. 

Anyway, here are some things I've been diggin'.

--------

:: Coming together as a global community to improve everyone's health, including our planet's.

:: An interview with Michael Pollan about healthy foods.

:: Just one of the many, many reasons I love the television show Community.

:: An article about how younger generations are starting to value agriculture, and how many people in their twenties and thirties are starting to make moves back to the land as farmers. 

:: This video embodies how I feel about photography and what I want my life to be:

:: Last year, I started spotting these weird little bugs crawling around everywhere, and after doing some Googling, I found out that they were essentially LADYBUG BABIES, which made me unreasonably excited. I also thought it was interesting that I had never seen them before...and I haven't seen them since. 

:: An interview and discussion with photographer Sebastiao Salgado about his amazing photos from all over the world and how the effects of climate change can already be seen, even if they aren't right in front of us all the time. 

:: As someone who buys as many organic food items as possible, it's helpful to get a lesson in the good and the bad of the organic industry. If only I had the skills to grow most of my own food and not have to deal with thinking about stuff like this. Someday? Someday. 

:: Mark Bittman (who is retiring from his New York Times column, which makes me sad) talks about the history of the sugar industry and its effects on our health. 

:: I can't remember where I heard this song originally, but it's become one of my favorite chilling-out-and-feeling-happy songs: 

Happy Friday!
