Learn more about Mono No Aware!MOOOzzarella

I’ve been toying with the idea of making cheese.  I have had a 30+ year love affair with cheese–cow to sheep to goat.  Does anyone think I can convince Jon that we can raise and milk cows, sheep & goats, plus make cheese in addition to the blogging, art, singing & house renovation?  It isn’t what we normally do, but we can learn, right?  I am going to start with a cow’s milk mozzarella. Wish me luck.  This next Call may, or may not, involve media with which YOU are familiar, but I think you should take a look either way…

Check out this Call for Entries for Mono No Aware 2014. This is a really cool way to stretch your creative streak even if film is not your normal media.  Be sure to investigate this one…

I’ve become a casual fan of Naked & Afraid (the TV show).  When flipping through the channels, I keep tripping across the reruns.  For those of you non-watchers.  Two people (1 man, 1 woman) that have never met who are dropped in a remote location for 21 days with nothing–not even clothes. I am dumbfounded by what they will eat.  If you’re hungry enough, I supposes giant crickets (maybe it was a grasshopper) look delicious.  Bizarre.  Here’s a Call for all things bizarre.  Maybe even crickets…

An artist friend updated his Facebook status by musing that his house should be Zagat rated based on the fantastic aromas wafting from his kitchen at the moment.  Mine too.  At least a couple of days a week my kitchen is alive with the scent of a far away place that can brag of being the origin curry, oregano or anise.  One-dish vacations.  This next Call wants your views on far away places.  Take a look…

POTATOES

While traveling recently, I was forced to choose between two “American” restaurants as my only options.  According to these menus, American fare is defined as steak, baked potatoes, boiled vegetables, hamburgers & fries.  I am puzzled by that summation.  How does a country so rich with ethnic variety get distilled down to steak and potatoes?  This next Call wants your ideas on your origin from you perspective; food could be an interesting viewpoint.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from Crossing Art (Flushing, NY) for The View Over Here, an international exhibit of international views of individual origin.  $30 entry for up to 10 images, and it is open to ALL MEDIA.  This is a great theme…

"I feel a rootedness to everything about nature;-rushing rivers, tangled bushes and trees, blooming plants & flowers, songs of birds, snow falling in a silent and dark night, the warmth of a summer evening. Early experiences along with my response to nature, to personal relationships and to the world are the ingredients. The presence of memory is the ongoing spice."
