This is a slice of the luscious blood oranges we got at Farmer’s Market yesterday. Delish, yes. I don’t know where they’re getting or how they’re growing them, but I don’t much care. It’s like the juiciest Summer day in your mouth. I really am a woman of simple pleasures. When I stepped into the […]
Political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt recently wrote an article about fascism (“Fascism Anyone?,” Free Inquiry, Spring 2003, page 20).

He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. The excerpt […]
Just in from Arkansas! You know at first they looked like they were eating only the bugs–but after a few days of freedom my chickens made the broccoli look like this. My greenhouse is under pine trees. In the winter it is too dark for lettuce to grow. I’m thinking of a cold frame or […]
Okay, so it’s January 28 and I’ve GOT to finish up some straggling projects or I’m totally going to freak out [slash] lose my noodle. I’m also not allowing any new projects to start until some old ones are finished. I suppose this could be considered a goal. And while I’m laying out goals, I […]
Saturday is market day in the Lewis/Marion household, so Justin & I made our way to downtown Providence for Winter Market & to catch transit to the East Side Market.

Resist corporate box store patronage. Make the switch to local Organic, animal-friendly dairy & eggs. Get up earlier in the day and heed an actual schedule. Aquire less stuff [slash] get rid of some of the stuff I’ve already aquired. Volunteer at a community garden. Give in to my free spirit more often.
2003, California. 2007, Rhode Island. What can I say about the last four years that isn’t summed up by these two photographs? It’s been four years, now, that Justin & I have experienced life from a joint vantage; I’m so grateful to have him around. Those that know Justin know him to be a kind, […]
This is the first year that Justin & I have had the room to have a tree, so a couple weeks ago we went to the Winter Market and chose one from a local organic farm and had it delivered up to the apartment. For the longest time we had only Kathy’s gift under it, […]
I love Little Rhody. A bit about the Providence Wintertime Farmers’ Market: Local food all winter long. The chickens are still laying eggs. The salad greens are so leafy and crisp. The onions and garlic are packing spice. The apples and squashes are getting sweeter by the day. Join us for the start of another […]
