The book trailer for The Where, the Why, and the How: 75 Artists Illustrate Wondrous Mysteries of Science
Available in bookstores and online:
A science book like no other, The Where, the Why, and the How turns loose 75 of today’s hottest artists onto life’s vast questions, from how we got here to where we are going. Inside these pages some of the biggest (and smallest) mysteries of the natural world are explained in essays by real working scientists, which are then illustrated by artists given free rein to be as literal or as imaginative as they like. The result is a celebration of the wonder that inspires every new discovery. Featuring work by such contemporary luminaries as Lisa Congdon, Jen Corace, Neil Farber, Susie Ghahremani, Jeremyville, and many more, this is a work of scientific and artistic exploration to pique the interest of both the intellectually and imaginatively curious.

Yesterday a friend asked if I had the makings of a hot toddy…
Feeling slightly slighted I wandered into the kitchen and looked around. My most recent marshmallow recipe had left me dry of bourbon, but with a fresh batch of cinnamon water*. What’s a girl to do but improvise?
The following is my new standard for a Toddy:
(I usually double the booze & add a tinge more lemon for warm giggles.)
2oz Whisky (preferably one with some peat)
1 tsp honey or agave, etc
Juice of ½ a lemon
5-10 drops Cinnamon Water
Water to taste
Serve with a slice of lemon impaled by whole cloves.
*Cinnamon Water - boil 1 cup of water for every fresh stick of cinnamon until the water is stained rust
I keep wondering if one the biggest differences between the future design now versus previously is that the future of the past was an extrapolation of what the future might be, whereas the future of now is an exaggeration of what already is; the mantra of living in the future stifling the imagination availed to those who envisioned impossibilities, now real.
