Weekend Recap

Sometimes Nick's work takes him to some pretty remote locations, where roads are optional and only sometimes paved.  Such was the case on Friday and our Edge changed colors as a result.  On Saturday evening I went with Nick to revisit one of those remote locations.  During the day, it has a view of an old mining area, but we were there after dark to look at the stars.  And they were amazing.  Nick saw the Milky Way for the first time, and I spotted two shooting stars.
On Sunday we drove about an hour to Columbus.  After Liturgy, we found a small place for brunch called Till.  At first, it seemed like your typical, organic, trendy cafe, but then the artwork and menu informed us that we were, in fact, eating in a biodynamic restaurant.  Oddly enough, we'd just learned about biodynamic farming, so we found it pretty amusing to be experiencing it firsthand.  Now, we still don't know a whole lot about biodynamic theory, but we do know that burying a cow's horn full of manure is involved, as well as singing to the animals while slaughtering them and planting and harvesting according to moon cycles.  Maybe there's some solid science behind it all, but Nick and I remain unconvinced.  Regardless, the food was delicious, so they must be doing something right.
