Today's entry might be awl about the food, which my days often are, though I don't always document it.
Also, I think I'll do it all in pictures. You can hover over an item if there is any doubt about what I ate.
[A real breath blow-out dinner: garlic and onions. ]
I really wasn't into my workout today, but persisted through it. I listened to the following NPR Story of the Day podcasts during the hour:
|College Restores Artwork by Poet e.e. cummings (Yes, he painted, too!)|
|The Second City Skewers Obama and Clinton|
|Artists Lament Polaroid's Latest Development|
|A Donkey's Tale: When Urban Sprawl Encroaches|
|Religion Survey Finds Many Americans Swap Faiths|
|Therapists Look to Wii Games for Rehab Benefits|
|A Beguiling Bluegrass Classic: 'Ruby'|
|Do Voices Give Candidates Presidential Timbre|
|Mastodons in Manhattan: A Botanical Puzzle|
|Smurfs at 50: Ready for a Comeback|
The one on swapping faiths was pretty interesting. A study by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has found that "44 percent of adults change their religious affiliation from that of their childhood." I fall into that category.
The survey showed that the biggest move-to group is "unaffiliated" Americans. "That group is gaining more members than it's losing," Lugo says — but he points out that not everyone in that group is "unreligious." Among Americans ages 18 to 29, one-in-four said he or she is not affiliated with any religion.
That's me again—well not in that age group, but unaffiliated. I was raised Catholic and am now unaffiliated—and don't see that changing any time soon, if ever.
