XXXL

I adore Zeloot's illustration from Elizabeth Kolbert's book review. (New Yorker, July 20th 2009)

What a great use of distortion, color and shape to compose a compelling image.

In the NY'er article, Kolbert lays out various authors' insights as to why Americans - and ever more so - global citizens are and are becoming so fat.

BEARGRASS

Beargrass flowers Xerophyllum tenax (syn. Helonias tenax) are a gorgeous sight!! I recently saw them driving over Oregon's Santiam Pass.

They are a grass-like perennial - related to lilies - and found mostly in Western subalpine meadows.
