BLACK UHURU / “PARTY NEXT DOOR”
Just got the amazing news that the grant application i co-wrote helped to secure funds for the crown heights/prospect heights food allies to run programming this year! thats $1600 just for healthy cooking demos, seedling giveaways, support for area gardens and CSAs, and hi-res color printouts of our food map. extra happy for community because we’re pretty much just giving it right back to our friends & neighbors. feeling so f*cking fancy.

Read of the day:
I do not identify with my body. I have a body but I am a mind. My body and I have an intimate but awkward relationship, like foreign roommates who share a bedroom but not a language. As the thinker of the pair, I contemplate my body with curiosity, as a scientist might observe a primitive species. My mind is a solitary wanderer in this universe of bodies.
go read this..
(via I Am Not This Body - NYTimes.com)
“Squeamishness about bodies contributes much to the fear of death. Were death merely annihilation — the quiet snuffing out of consciousness — it might almost possess a sublime, philosophic poetry. But the accompanying facts of physical decay are merely vile. Dying, we gasp for air and cough blood and vomit, and waste to shriveled remnants of ourselves. After death, bad gets worse, as our rotting organs seep noxious fumes and make mansions for maggots.”
