SPOTTED yesterday at Harry’s Pizzeria: Local passion fruit panna cotta. Right now Florida has the most delicious passion fruit, strawberries, tangerines, guava, lemongrass, ginger, grapefruit and kumquats. A bounty of everything fresh you’ll find in desserts not only at Harry’s, but also MGFD. If you’re a friend in NY, check out what’s fresh at my most favorite organic farm in Columbus County, NY, Katchkie Farm. They’re good people with huge hearts and amazing produce.
“The magic of a dance…is something purely accidental. The irony of this is that you have to work harder than anyone else for the accident to occur. Then, when it happens, it is the only thing in your life guaranteed never to happen again. This, to some, is an unhappy state of affairs, and yet to others, it is the only ecstasy. Perhaps, then, you should forget everything I have said to you and remember only this: The real beauty in life is that beauty can sometimes occur. “The Dancer” -Colum McCann”—(via elarogers)
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”—Albert Einstein (via sisterhimalaya)
