That pic of you and the cow is WONDERFUL! I wish I was hanging with a big, beautiful cow right now, instead of sitting my office chair - moooooooooooooooooo!

My question is how to address being called "crazy" and possibly alienating those we care for in a world where folks are making changes in their efforts to understand how food impacts their entire lives and point of view? How can we neutralize the awkwardness and in some cases hostility coming from those who are not clear on why folks( their friends) who have always eaten one way and are not eating that way any more. How do we develop kindness here.

In the same way that you pressured Burger King to offer veggie burgers, I have seen restaurant menus tilt more vegan/vegetarian because of pressure from vegan patrons who want more vegan choices.

well said Gene, and cute photo too.

Beautifully said.

The new blog looks great!
