Top favorite: Handmade jewelry from Nisolo, made in Kenya and perfectly basic.  My love started with supporting their Kickstarter campaign and now I anxiously await the arrival of some great brass jewelry.  Happy Birthday to me.







Favorite video: Now, when I miss my Indiana home, I can watch a few videos of the action on the farm, taken by my brother's drone

Favorite article: A timely and well-thought piece by Wendell Berry - Thoughts in the Presence of Fear

Favorite recipeBasil chicken curry, a perfectly easy and delicious recipe to host family members who were visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Favorite new song:  I'm jumping on the bandwagon with Everglow by Coldplay

Favorite quote:

Come away, O human child,
to the waters and the wild
with a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
— Yeats

Favorite comedic relief: Sometimes it's the absurdity that makes it fun to live in Uganda.  Take a man smuggling goats in dresses to pass them off as children, for example.

Favorite new word: insouciant - free from concern, worry, or anxiety; carefree; nonchalant. From Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard

Favorite product: I had these rattling links made for Leo from cow horn.  He absolutely loves them.  Now I'm selling them for other babes.
