    Thank you for the link about volunteering at school events.
    I’m currently reading “All the rage” by Darcy Lockman and she would agree and confirm this observations with overwhelming data from her various interviews and lots of scientific studies. It’s a brilliant, yet disenchanting book, introducing us to the fact that, if progress in sharing family work continues at the current pace, the amount mothers and fathers will break even in – about 70 years.

    I am serial dieter and have also tried Intuitive Eating. I really like some of the concepts. I am now able to eat without overstuffing myself, I can look at food now and say “that’s too much”. I may have been too lenient with eating whatever I want as long as I ate only when I was hungry. But this lenience has led me to gain more weight. I am now seeing a weight loss doctor and am focusing on decreasing carbs and sugar. I want to get to a point where I am at a healthy weight and not having to take as many medications for my elevated blood pressure and GERD. I think once that happens, I will be able to live by the tenets of Intuitive Eating. Dieting is my drug, it’s so hard to break a habit you’ve lived with most of your life, even if it isn’t good for you.

    This is an awesome list! I love the principles of intuitive eating (especially honor your feelings without using food), the installation in Venice is amazing and the photos stunning.

    Thank you for sharing the McMansion article! That really hit home. We used to live in an area of the south where real estate is stupid cheap, so we bought a huge house in a rural/suburban wasteland. It was a dumb thing to do for 2 people without kids, and we were too miserable to even articulate how unhappy it made us. Last year we sold most of our crap and moved to a city where we rent an apartment with 1/3 of the space we used to have, and are about 1000 times happier. I realize that level of choice and mobility are a huge privilege, but man, did it make a difference in quality of life.
