My brother just sent this link to me: http://kalman.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/11/26/back-to-the-land/?8dpc
It's from a blog called And the Pursuit of Happiness by Maira Kalman. The NY Times often includes her blog in their Opinion section. I've read other posts of hers before and like my brother, find them quite insightful.
Above is my favorite caption from her recent post called "Back to the Land." I also really liked this quote by Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivores Dilemma. "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants."
