I have been developing a few photos from my trip, trying to decide what I am going to do with them. Of the few that I printed, this one came out really nicely in 8 x 10. I took it at the Dalat airport while we were waiting for our flight to Ho Chi Minh City.
I'm back in Los Angeles this week, working and also babysitting my favorite 12 and 9-year old boys -- the sons of some lifelong friends -- for a whopping eight days. Yesterday was a banner day as I took them to the first farmers' market that they've ever been to. Mark, the youngest, was pretty interested in everything, even choosing some purple cauliflower from Weiser Family Farms, carefully inspecting about 5 booths of strawberries before settling on our purchase, and also taking home some kettle corn.
If you happen to see a copy of Time magazine this week, check out this week's cover story "Eating Better than Organic" about the local food movement and one man's account of trying to make a decision between local and organic. I felt like a proud parent when I received the press release on Friday, as the Eat Local Challenge blog and the Locavores are both mentioned in the piece. Big pat on the back to all of you who work so hard to talk about the importance of where your food comes from. We are being heard, and are acting as catalysts for a conversation that is now occurring throughout this country!
