I feel like the boingboing post fits in nicely with my horoscope from Rob Brezsny. He's always so right-on:
And then beauty of the tulip fields on Pruned is hard to ignore. Yes, just in time for Mother's Day.It's not very "wild" looking. More like a far-out plaid. Loving it!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
"Don't eat any food that's incapable of rotting," says Michael Pollan in his book In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. In other words, highly processed foods with a long shelf life don't contribute to your optimum vitality. I'd like to expand this rule to make it an all-purpose guideline for life. Try out this hypothesis: If you're involved with any person or situation that never decays, or if there is some part of you that never decays, that's highly suspicious and may be a problem. Like growth, rot is a natural phenomenon. Indeed, every advancement requires or brings the disintegration of whatever it replaces. You can't grow if you don't rot! The "perfection" of stasis can be hazardous to your health! So let me ask you, Pisces: What's due to rot in your world?
