WP editor Ben Huberman says share something unabashedly ornate.
The most stunning sight in Siracusa, Sicily is the cathedral, the star of the Piazza del Duomo. It was built in the first half of the eighteenth century on top of a Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. The Greek pillars are still there, blended into the walls and supporting the massive roof. Elaborately, and sumptuously, adorned.
Story wrangler CHERI LUCAS ROWLANDS asks:
What’s mundane yet meaningful to you? What’s a beautiful everyday thing?
the transformative art of the sea
shapely, subtle, showing its cleverness
Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth. It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or a thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.
Happiness not in another place, but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.
-Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
I discovered Researcher Matt Killingsworth. He designs studies that gather data on happiness. While doing his Ph.D. research at Harvard, Killingsworth invented the Track Your Happiness app. Takeaway? Stay in the moment.

IN THE KITCHEN
Where Creativity Meets Good Taste
This is the ultimate cooking school and party space near me in Tequesta, Florida. It’s Foodie Heaven. And Lenore is its Goddess.
She has a swellegant demonstration kitchen where you can learn new techniques, improve your skills, or just sit back and watch. She offers hands-on interactive classes and demonstrations. I attended the demo ~ Lenore did all the cooking, I did all the tasting.
In The Kitchen serves real food. Fresh, natural ingredients. Seasonal, local, organic.
For you gardeners and farm share holders, here’s my idol, Lenore, with a timely demo.
