In Life

001: Had the pleasure of hearing photographer Nick Ut and Julie Hillgärtner talk in Berlin this Friday as part of a panel discussion about the evolution of photojournalism within the last 40 years and going to this event really reminded me of how much I miss critical thinking from University.
002: Planning on starting a monthly art critique session at my flat with friends which will be full of wine, food, and artist musings. Kinda sorta really fucking excited about this one.

On the web

weekly links to interesting sites -

001: This amaranth porridge with roasted pears sounds like the perfect Sunday breakfast.
002: Really intent on trying to make these Apricot Dark and Stormy cocktails.
003: This Easy Pumpkin Curry is just what I want to be eating by candle light on a chilly fall evening.
004: Coconut Pumpkin Chia Pudding sounds basically like the best fall dessert ever.
005: Dying to try out this butternut squash walnut sage pasta!
006: Pumpkin Pie Oats? Um, hell yes.
