Before Organic Farming Was a “Thing”

a page from my sketch book

Before organic farming was a thing, there was ital cooking by Jamaica’s Rastafarians. Here is an 8-minute video on hillside farming in Nonsuch, Portland (Jamaica): natural eating.

If you ever get a chance to visit Portland, Jamaica, try to visit the Nonsuch Cave, a system of  nine chambers of stalagmites and stalactites. Inside this cave you will find seashells and other fossils embedded into the walls. This is quite amazing since the cave is high atop a hill! This area must once have been undersea. A favorite place to stay when on this end of the island is Trident Castle: here, peacocks greet you from the rooftops at evening time.

Part I of II

A good way to get to know a neighborhood is to attend the San Francisco Arts Commission’s annual Passport event. This year’s art walk took place in San Francisco’s Japantown. Here are the first 8 of 16 passport stamps collected from various artists.

Stay tuned for Part II, where I’ll post the remaining 8 stamps from Passport 2015.
