Dan Barber: How I fell in love with a fish...
...brought to you by the fantastic, TED: Ideas worth spreading...my newest obsession :D
Wow...this guy is fantastic...he has an ironic humor that is not condescending...so that we GET IT!
The irony for me was that all this time I didn't realize that I was a "foodie"...just kept telling DH that I was trying to find ways to keep him healthy so that he will be around longer!
I always knew that I was a bit of a gypsy...having traveled the world and not being able to settle in one place for long ;]
And I have always considered myself a left-over hippie...that would be because I was born in the 60's and was too young to really participate in the true hippie experience. Here's the definition according to Wikipedia...and I definitely did not experience any of this...ha! ha!
The hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that arose in the United States during the mid-1960s, swiftly spreading to other countries around the world. The etymology of the term 'hippie' is from hipster, and was initially used to describe beatniks who had moved into New York City's Greenwich Village and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The early "hippies" ideologies included the countercultural values of the Beat Generation. Some created their own social groups and communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and used drugs such as marijuana and LSD to explore alternative states of consciousness.
Now I'm an foodie loving, free-livin', exploring, activist...and there is so much more yet to come! Because I'm a Grannie wanna-be out to make this a better world for the next generation :D
