  This week's poem of the week comes from Hoa Nguyen 

Love and Level

by Hoa Nguyen

Love and level the sleeves
              Eating is a hand
here        Leave laughing if you must
like leave this creamy celery root

We push out                     jerking
a sleeve of we    & I cover you
horses sourced in sea

(weave in waves and manes)

Hoa Nguyen, "Love and Level" from As Long As Trees Last. Copyright 2012. 

Taiye Selasi has something to say about where she's from
And it's well said. I teared up at a couple points because it hit so close to home. 

Why print in the darkroom?
Alternative and historical processes
I am looking forward to getting back into the darkroom sometime within the next month or so. 

A super dedicated journaller 

My family came to visit me this weekend which always leave me off balance searching for my place in my day to day life but this week was better than last week and I just need to hang on and ride the wave up and in. 

Cake!

 Today I have lots of cake recipes. I'm also working on pysanky for Christmas (and Hanukkah) gifts. Hopefully I'll add some picture later this week. Tonight I'm going to see the traditional nativity play at my old school. There's a potluck after so that's where all the cake comes in. 

Cake Links
"Smart" Cake is a cake that separates itself into three layers while baking
This condensed milk cake only has 5 ingredients and has translations in German and Arabic
This white sheet cake is what I made today with a few modifications (such as cinnamon) 
And I modified this quick "caramel" frosting to go with it
This amaretti cookie and raspberry cake is on my to bake list

Non-cake Links
I want to make this recipe for Black Russian Bagels 
I think this recipe for scones is where my left over cranberries will be going

 There is not enough caffeine in the world to get me through this conversation (I think I'm gonna throw up).
