When I was checking if the rice is done, Lynnda said: 'put a stick of butter in it'. She and I have different approaches to Nickelsville's cooking: hers is to make gourmet comfort food - as homey and tasty as possible (it works! - people love her coking); mine has more of a healthy slant: low fat, lots of veggies, hardly any diary; now our styles collided. But Lynnda is the chef on Thursdays so I obliged (well, cheated a bit, 3/4 stick of a butter for huge pot of rice), while musing that hopefully there is never a Nickelsville's vote to rate our cooking, because I have no doubt who would be voted out of the island.
Butoh is a dance expression that emerged out of post-WWII Japan. During a time of heavy Westernization and atomic disaster, many Japanese artists sought expression that moved towards more authentic self-identification. Tatsumi Hijikata developed Ankoku Butoh, which translates to "dance of the dark soul." Almost 50 years later Butoh has evolved and branched out all over the world and is in a constant state of change.
One and a half months before Nickelsville moves away from the fire station - where will they go is still up in the air. Everyone is calmly talking about it, Jeremy mentioned that stuff they acquired will need to be packed and put in storage and generally there is a talk about downsizing, as Nickelsville likely will return to living in tents, without indoor kitchen or storage room, as they have now.
A few weeks ago 3 years old sponsorship of Nickelsville changed from Veterans for Peace to.... i have to dig that info up and put a link to the new organization.
