Sometimes,
You Get What You Need

I need to be inspired.  I found that out a long time ago, when I thought just about everything was a drag.  One sentence can do the trick; even better is listening to someone who makes you want to jump out of your seat and hit the streets.

Eunyoung and I went to the Urban Agriculture Summit in Toronto this past week.  For me it was like giving the personal car of my mind a tune-up.   Some people say the country needs another stimulus.  If you really want stimulus; surround yourself with the likes of Will Allen, Paul Lightfoot and Gary Wozniak.

I am passionate about FOOD:  food security, food justice, sustainable and affordable food and local food.  But those are just words; at this point they are platitudes.  At a conference, like the Urban Ag Summit, you meet the people who walk the talk.  They are the  21st century version of Helen and Scott Nerring.

I came home, "put on my running shoes" and began to think about the ways we can expand our Edible Education Program to do more, reach a greater number kids, open our small community to a greater number of individuals and have a larger impact on the little world of Randall's Island. I think it's called VISION.

Indeed, in my acquaintance in swiss replica watches the accomplished few years, talking to anew affluent tech titans in replica watches uk Silicon Valley, their archival priorities don't aboveboard with acceptable notions of luxury. They tend to abandon beam in favor of businesslike smartwatches from Apple or Pebble or something acrid like an old-school calculator Pulsar. In fact, Pebble architect Eric Migicovksy proudly didn't own replica watches uk a watch until creating the Pebble.
