What a summer! Things are about to BL.OW. Oh Oh Oh OH OHHH… cue Ke$ha..and …DANCE…
*Sigh*, I know but sometimes random songs just pop into your head. I’m about to give you the quick and dirty recap on the muffin business that you SO missed out on.
The muffin got around pretty fast, but only in Boston at the Ancestral Health Symposium at Harvard. It was highly requested there… I cannot tell you how much George loved it.
Especially in his “rare form” state. It was a big hit amongst everyone else as well. It was too hot at the Crossfit games, therefore, it was on muffin hiatus. Too much heat and too much wonderful competion with all the new fancy paleo(ish) bars. My review on those in another post.
Since AHS was the last, most significant event. I’m going to theme this post according to my favorite presentation at AHS. Dr. Gray, I love you.
His presentation on the social and emotional competencies that play provides children was BY far my favorite, and most eye opening (to society) presentation there. Of course I learned other things, but I’ll be damned if I remember them all. Trust me, I’ll be watching the YouTube videos again, of all the presentations I went to. Check out Peter Gray’s research. He really is on point. Community is the true beginnings of how our behaviors are fostered, and our society has much to learn about that.
Going to things like AHS, for me is much like watching a movie over and over again because you literally can’t remember the little parts, but you know the concept. Like the movie Memento – Concept remembered; pieces of the story forgotten. There were so many profound and A-HA moments, I was like a nerdy little child, eagerly absorbing as much info as I could, but forgetting it all in about t-minus two seconds. All I wanted to do was PLAY. But in all seriousness, AHS in my perspective regarded, hmm.. how can I do my part to help people? wish more people would just learn to EXPLORE different possibilities, LEARN how to make decisions for themselves by EVALUATING their options.
That said. I’m going to sum up AHS from the eyes of a child. Top ten style.
