Hi! I’m Debow, a neutered black Labrador retriever. I am 62 pounds of pure energy. I love playing fetch in the yard, and the more exercise this boy gets outside, the calmer I will be once I come back in! I love rolling in the dirt and having my tailbone scratched, [...]Continue Reading →
In the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency sent 70 photographers out into the American landscape to”photographically document subjects of environmental concern,” a project known as DOCUMERICA that was interpreted widely by these photographers, and which yielded some stunning (and often horrifying) results. After reading a recent NPR blog post about the project, [...]Continue Reading →

In a certain sense, childhood is most acutely experienced in retrospect. As a child, it’s simply life as you know it. But, as an adult, childhood (both one’s own and the developmental category in general) takes on a kind of mythic significance and, perhaps, nostalgic appeal. In this episode of Off Topic we look at [...]Continue Reading →
I bought this book on impulse. There was that charming cover with earthen bowls nestling beans and seeds and vegetables, with labels handwritten in pencil. It was April and the urge to put seeds in the ground had become overwhelming, even in the face of a [...]Continue Reading →

Professor Stillman battles a pesky woodpecker, and in so doing, comes face to [...]Continue Reading →

His techniques produced such stunning results [...]Continue Reading →

Hi there! I’m Katie, a 5-year-old long-haired tortie. I am very curious, and I will love exploring your house. I can be a little nervous in new environments and around loud noises, so a quieter home would be best for me. But if you give me some gentle love and affection, [...]Continue Reading →
