Why You Should Avoid Palm Oil, and How to Do it →

New article up. Remember, palm oil really shouldn’t be considered vegan. I know it’s not an animal product, but honestly, veganism isn’t just some “check yes or no is this from an animal” fad diet. Veganism is an ethical philosophy strongly concerned with the well-being and freedom of animals, and that philosophy is directly opposed to the use of palm oil.

So, yeah, that means no Oreos guys, sorry.

Save the orangutans & pygmy elephants! Boycott palm oil!

Found this beautiful cedar waxwing motionless in the middle of the road the other day. It was just a little cold I guess.

"Sentient animals have the capacity to experience pleasure and are motivated to seek it. You only have to watch how cows and lambs both seek and enjoy pleasure when they lie with their heads raised to the sun on a perfect English summer’s day. Just like humans." - John Webster

Circle of Life- This past January and February, we had a rare opportunity to observe the birth cycle of an Anna’s hummingbird up close.
By chance, we spotted a hummingbird nest on a bamboo groove about 15 feet away from our courtyard balcony.  For the next several weeks, we had front row seats to witness the incredible process of eggs transformed into fledglings.
We were ecstatic and sad the day the two fledglings left the nest. But our hummingbird story didn’t end there.
The very next day, during my daily jog around Arroyo Seco trail, I found this dead hummer on the ground near the Farm. It must have flew into a window and broke it’s neck. Wanting to give it a proper burial, I placed it on this leaf and carried it back to the Farm before resuming my jog.  When I finally got home half an hour later, the setting sun cast a sharp light streak across the studio floor so I hastily setup my camera to memorialized this hummer.  Natural light is beautiful.
