My First Two Magic Mushroom Journeys
At the end of our Denver trip for the Psychedelic Science 2023 conference (see my earlier full conference review if that interests you), I played a game at one of the afterparties and won a magic mushroom (shown below). It weighed about 3 grams. Magic mushrooms were decriminalized in Colorado last year, including for personal use and gifting but not for selling. Saturday Night The afterparty only went till 1am, and it wasn’t the right setting for a deep mushroom journey. I thought about my intention for this little guy and decided that for my first experience, I just wanted to energetically shake hands with...

Banana Bread (with Chocolate Bits)
I’m generally not a fan of bananas eaten anything other than in vivo, ie., peeled and popped into the mouth, fresh but not too ripe. I don’t like them in ice cream, oatmeal, cereal, cakes or even in fruit salads. Certain foods, in my opinion, just need to be enjoyed one-on-one, you know? But last week, in my mother-in-law’s kitchen, a few over-ripe bananas were calling out not to be wasted, so my daughter and I decided to make banana bread. I figured that since others were there with us that evening, I would be under no obligation to eat the thing I was making, and my daughter and I would have a littl...

Making the Mundane Magnificent: A Fresh Approach to Everyday Tasks
We all have those mundane tasks that we can’t seem to shake off our to-do lists – the ones that make us sigh just thinking about them. But let’s challenge this mindset: Is the task boring or are we approaching it with a boring mindset? What if the task isn’t inherently dreadful, but we’re simply being uninteresting in how we approach it? What would happen if we were to bring a fun, engaging, and playful mindset to these tasks? Consider the simple act of doing household chores. They can often feel tedious, right? But let’s reframe. Instead of approaching them with a sense of dread, I often pai...

Another day to think, to pause, to ponder.
Panorama of Sycamore Park and the memorial to Karim A bit over 10 years ago I wrote a blog post that I repost all the time. Entitled "A day to think, to pause, to ponder" it was posted on my dad ' s birthday and was about the pain of him dying, by suicide, when I was in college. It was meant as a sad, melancholy post but also one about the importance of compassion and how " we can all do a little bit to improve how we treat other. " When I reposted this one time a few years ago, someone asked me if I had ever met the " Compassion Guy " who frequented downtown Davis and who had a life ' s mission of getting people to t...

Why weight loss drugs are not the answer to obesity
Drugs that cause weight to melt away sound more tempting than chocolate cake, but weight loss drugs won’t cure obesity. And that’s OK, because obesity isn’t a disease to be cured.

Ray Bradbury and Roald Dahl
David BoazLast week it wasreported that the publishers of Roald Dahl ’s books have been quietly editing to make them presumably more acceptable to modern readers — or at least more acceptable to modern activists.To wit:In “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” for instance, Augustus Gloop is no longer “fat”; he’s “enormous.” And the Oompa Loompas aren’t “small men”; they’re “small people.” While Matilda once went to India with Rudyard Kipling, now she travels to California with John Steinbeck. In “Fantastic Mr. Fox, ” even the chickens’ feelings have been spared; they’re no longer called...
