Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture FoodsWild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods by Sandor Ellix Katz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

run, don’t walk. this book is a love letter to the ecology that we live within and that exists within our bodies. probably the single best diy toolbox to fixing your diet, your health, and the life of this community we co-exist in called terra firma. his comments on death and decay in the final chapter are a wake-up call to change the way we have monetized and commodified even the process of grieving and burial. makes me want to help build the laboratory/farm/co-operative/csa and change this mess we have inherited from the lazy and cowardly, the bullies that hold us in thrall to greed and avarice. we need some fermentation up in here.

Just KidsJust Kids by Patti Smith

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

one of the most beautiful, honest, and inspirational books i have read in years. it is the story of art and artists becoming, or as patti herself said, “i haven’t fucked much with the past, but i’ve fucked plenty with the future.” the title alone is worth the price of admission, because we all are just that in the eyes of the universe, and artists, and hero/ines of our own stories. “don’t dream it, be it.”
