“Human nature is like water. It takes the shape of its container.” ― Wallace Stevens

Food 🥩🥦

When you bow, you should just bow; when you sit, you should just sit; when you eat, you should just eat. — Shunryu Suzuki

It's a pot luck! Please bring a paleo-inspired food item to share, more specifically of the primal variety.

When you've decided what you're bringing, call it out in a comment at the end of this page so others can plan complimentary dishes

Confused about paleo? Here's an in-depth list, but to simplify: - No bread, oats, corn, or brown rice. - A little legumes are okay, if they're soaked or fermented. - Go moderate on dairy, full fat is preferred. - If it can go on a grill, in a salad, or comes from a tree, you're probably fine.

Places to get recipes: - Mark's Daily Apple - Paleo Magazine - Google is your friend but make sure to keep it easy

Gifts ✈️🌏

iPhones, clothes, couches, et cetera, just become background. They deteriorate or become obsolete. It's the fleetingness of experiential purchases that endears us to them. Either they're not around long enough to become imperfect, or they are imperfect, but our memories and stories of them get sweet with time. Even a bad experience becomes a good story.

No gifts necessary. If you want to bring a couple bucks to chip in to me and Mina's around the world trip, it'll go to good use.


Parking near the beach can be tricky in Santa Cruz during the summer. Damon recommends driving up to the end of 14th Street, unloading, then finding parking in the surrounding area and walking a couple blocks.
