Two words for Duffboy to live by: sleep hygiene. Things that have me excited: personalized sticker art that I’ve been working on, becoming vegan again (this time, I’m going for the gold!), and the fact that Leia and Mishus have been hanging upstairs once again (my cats’ health was a concern for several weeks, notContinue reading “Quick Tuesday update”

I am at a loss for words. Just watch and feel The Sirens of the lambs, part of Banksy`s residency in New York Better Out Than In. Now, for additional context and a vegan perspective, read this post by Mercy for Animals.

This is a guest post by Alia Tiberius. I kindly asked this vegan athlete to share her vegan experience in my humble blog. Here is what she had to say.

Remember a few months ago I told you I wanted to read Eating Animals, by Jonathan Safran Foer? Well, I did… and it changed my life.
