shannatrenholm Repost via @mercyforanimals (from @unclerush's new book). Dairy products have a compound that inhibits the human body's ability to absorb the calcium that is in the product (because, surprise! Milk is for baby animals, not for human adults). Don't fall victim to big money lobbys and counsels (like dairy and beef). Archaic thinking & unfounded science drives the dairy's health claims/lies. 5d

shannatrenholm This day shaped up more melancholy than I thought it would.
It's not so much the grey weather, but the familiar place of balancing on the precipice of one chapter while peering into the unknown next chapter.

Took myself to the movies today (after spending some serious coin at King's Books). I really love the Grand Cinema here in Tacoma. I saw Brooklyn— it wrenched my heart, for some reason.

I guess I'm just in one of those tender, sensitive spaces. A most human place to be.

shannatrenholm My last leisurely afternoon at Corina Bakery before my move in 3 days.

Enjoying an almond milk latte and vegan pumpkin bread—and excited to start this book, When Breath Becomes Air by the late Paul Kalanithi.

I will miss you, Tacoma, you quirky little place, you. Stay feared ;-)

shannatrenholm The latest issue of the Ampersand is out—have you read it? If you want to, a clickable link is in my profile.
Here's an excerpt: I don’t want to plan the next three months, much less the next year, because no one knows what will happen—in 3 months or twelve.
I’d rather be open to possibilities.
Often, I think that over-planning is a way to avoid the life right in front of us. When we are so busy living for a future date, we don’t have to think about today.

shannatrenholm The next batch of my embellished twigs for the abandoned art project will be dropped tomorrow.
The attached cards are made from catalog photos and images from an old lotería calendar.
On the back of the card is info. about the project and a dedicated-to-this-project email so that the finder can, if they want, send me an email with a photo of them and their new twig :-)

Find a ticket, win a lottery,
Scoop the pearls up from the sea
Cash them in and buy you all the things you need." ~ Patti Smith
