Monday Morning Dispatch - Volume #33

Start your Monday off right: 

  1. PORK BELLY CORNBREAD WAFFLE BANH MI - A perfect pairing of hearty waffle with the fatty pork belly and the crisp crunchy pickles. 
  2. To balance out the food posts this week, sweet potato cakes with a crispy egg on top. I have repeatedly attempted to make potato cakes and have yet to make an acceptable version. Its time to give it another shot 
  3. Shane Koyczan is a master of words. His lastest spoken word poem was absolutely beautiful. 
  4. A timelapse of Patrick Vale drawing the New York City skyline 
  5. The cyclist, Tyler Phinney, talks about his sport, art, and relationship with his Dad who is battling Parkinson disease 
  6. “Sometimes, your insecurities and your inexperience may lead you, too, to embrace other people’s expectations, standards or values. But you can harness that inexperience to carve out your own path, one that is free of the burden of knowing how things are supposed to be, a path that is defined by its own particular set of reasons.” Natalie Portman during Harvard Class Day 
  7.  Most people wouldn't describe surfing in water barely above the freezing point as fun but that is exactly what Chris Burkard does. The images Chris brings back are absolutely stunning. 
  8. "Constraints are a control mechanism buffering against the nature of how ideas work. Ideas like to go on forever, like the party guest who has endless stories to share with you, standing between you and the appetizers."  On Constraints, Exploration and Chance

I am still recovering from my first art festival on Saturday. I survived without too bad of sunburn. I posted a video of my booth . Now I have to catch up on all the chores that I put off last week starting with planting the tomatoes that I started from seed. I hope everyone is had a great week.
