Dream House!

Have you been? It's a psychedelic, nag champa zen pad in the middle of Tribeca. Keep your eyes peeled for an inconspicuous black door that has a sign reading "Dream House." Dream House was created in 1993 by modern composer La Monte Young and visual artist Marian Zazeela. Zazeela explains that “together, the sound and light can be experienced as a new form, or new media: the sound and light environment. The experience of the two mediums together as one requires a new, or at least different, mode of attention.” A new collection of pitches forms with every move you make as you encounter the different resonating sound fields creating by La Young.
It's open Thursday and Saturday 2-midnight to the public. Go stretch, roll around, do some headstands, back bends, take a nap...

Haiti Relief!

I want you to know that there is a quick way to donate to relief in Haiti. You can donate to the Red Cross by texting 90999 and writing "Haiti" in the message and your phone bill will be charged $10. It seems scammish but it's actually reputable, visit the Red Cross website if you are hesitant. I just did it! It's quick, easy and you can finally give yourself a big pat on the shoulder for making a difference.

Homemade granola!

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup flax seed
1/2 cup crushed almonds and walnuts
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dried cranberries

Mix all ingredients together then spread out on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes. Add cranberries after the 30 minutes. Keep in airtight container.

This is a spin off recipe on some "healthy-ish" cookies we attempted to make this weekend. Once baked they came out of the oven in large uneven granola chunk form instead of round doughey cookie form. They were quickly consumed with discussion of making granola for the next go around. This recipe is almost identical to the oatmeal cookie recipe sans the brown rice flour and butter. Enjoy!

Peyote Poem

Go away winter.
This makes me want to throw on an American flag teeshirt, cut off levis, chew on a honeystick and research the possibilities of the peyote experience :)
