a vegan couple: eating; running; living–minimally.

Taking a Break

The other day I was having a discussion with a coworker about how kids at her school had been asked by an administrator to put down their phones during a graduation ceremony and try to just be there in that moment and experience what was going on so that they could have those memories for themselves.  After hearing her talk about this my first thought was: “I want to take a break from blogging.” “Really?” Another part of my subconscious responded. “Yes. For a while I want to simply Experience rather than Document.”

With that in mind we are going to stop blogging for the next 6 months or so (perhaps with the occasional post). The above discussion aside, the timing of this all not as random as it might seem: we are moving to a new apartment, I have this summer to develop a new course for the fall, and we have Hattie! Apropos of the latter, while I love sharing things about parenting, being vegan, and fun anecdotes that arise I think it might be time for a breather.

We’ll leave you with this picture. Stay well out there in reader land. See you all soon.


a song with no end


Whitman and Bukowski. brilliant.

when Whitman wrote, “I sing the body electric”

I know what he
I know what he

to be completely alive every moment
in spite of the inevitable.

we can’t cheat death but we can make it
work so hard
that when it does take

it will have known a victory just as
perfect as

– Charles Bukowski
