I don’t know whether it’s a placebo effect or the luddite brain (or something else entirely), but every time I read a paper book my brain becomes delightfully overstimulated and my dreams go back to their surreal and vivid past state.

Friends: Vegan American comfort food cook-off Round 2. We had vegan mac and cheese with two types of nut-based cheese, and Cherry Chipotle BBQ pulled jackfruit sandwiches with a red cabbage & carrot avacado slaw. I had seconds (below) all stacked on top of each other.

Long day of travel on very little sleep. I had a long layover in Paris and got to practice some French. There was also a bus strike when I arrived in Berlin. German efficiency had a shuttle to the U-bahn ready to roll. Still got the navigating any and all new subway systems knack.
