National Parks
I've spent the past four days driving across the country and I can't tell you how many times I've said "woowwwww," in utter disbelief at how beautiful our Earth is. Along the way, I discovered America's National Parks Podcast. It's been a blast to listen to and learn more about the history of the gems of our nation. 

Current location: Black Hills National Forest, South Dakota.
Cacio e pepe is a simple dish. And when done right, it's absolutely divine. Take a page from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo and prepare this hearty, comforting dish for someone you love. 
Art I Like 
Wendy Red Star is a multidisciplinary artist from Billings, Montana. She's affiliated with the Apsáalooke, or Crow tribe, and her art often takes a satirical approach to the perception and representation of Native Americans in the United States. Check out her portfolio here
A Song I Like

I'm really looking forward to Phony Ppl's forthcoming album, mō'zā-ik. Due out October 19, the band has dropped three singles from the project, the latest being "Before You Get A Boyfriend." Per usual, it's smooth and funky. Give it a spin! 
What do you call it when you walk into a coffee shop you’re sure you’ve been to before? Déjà brew.
Hey, guess what! In most states it's not too late to register to vote! But it's getting close. This is important. This election is important. Your vote matters, it really does. Check here for the voter registration deadline in your state (California: Monday, October 22; Minnesota: You can register at your polling place day of; New York: Thursday, October 12...you have two days, get it together). 

Once you figure out your deadline, head to Vote Save America to register. Then check out what's up with your state, learn who's running and where they stand so you can vote responsibly. 
Another Song I Like

Check out this very beautiful song, "Warm," from Dre'es and Mia. The dreamy melody has me two-stepping and swaying around the house, singing into my spatula about to flip these pancakes. 
From a Friend
You've likely read (or at least saw the headline) about the United Nations' report on climate change. According to the participating scientists, we've got a little over a decade to make revolutionary changes to energy consumption to avoid climate catastrophe (read: Earth as we know it). The report's a lot to take in and it certainly left me feeling a bit defeated. But that's where my pal Leyla came in. She shared this to the point list of actions to take to address climate change in our daily lives. Read it. Make changes. 
One Last Thing
A while ago I brought up the idea of creating an art club where we all listen to the same album and create something inspired by the tracks. I'm still figuring out the details and logistics, but, if you're interested, shoot me an e-mail back so we can get goin' with it.
