Member Blogs > Pistil BlogLunch on the Balcony

    Today for Pistil Lunch we had saag paneer, brown rice, cucumber and scallion raita, and salad (arugula, romaine lettuce, yellow carrots, green onions, golden beets, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds).  A colorful lunch!  Amy, Sean, and Kam were present and it was a very warm day, so we ate on the balcony and tried to identify the bird songs we heard.  We have a robin's nest under the side balcony this year.

    What we're reading:

    I am reading Ancient Man by Hendrick Willem Van Loon, a popular writer of the 1930s, and the Chrysalis of Romance by Inez G. Howard, a book from the 1920s about the origin of north American customs.

    I'm reading a novel by Sara Baume called A Line Made by Walking.   The narrator is a mid-twenties woman artist who is experiencing depression and has gone to stay by herself in her dead grandmother's house in the country.  Every couple of pages the protagonist "tests" herself by naming and describing a piece of modern art related to whatever theme she happens to be thinking of (for example, television, "wrongness", beds, etc.).

    Sean says he just started a new book and will write next week.
