As of now I believe I have sent out officially…I have a bunch of envelopes that are labeled and stamped and awaiting theThree cats wear face mask shirt in contrast I will get this post office, so I’m going to count those. Thank you! You’re also the first person I’ve talked to in two weeks who’s not my boyfriend, and I’m sitting outside for the first time in awhile, so sorry if I seem distracted. Okay! So I’ve sent out 430. I’m going to map all of them, because they keep living wherever they are. Then, ostensibly, when their receivers become comfortable with them, they can share them with others and it just spreads like wildfire. That’s a metaphor that we’ve heard a lot used for—well, something else recently. It’s nice to think of it being used to make really healthful, delicious, comforting bread instead. After all, many people have started making bread as a mode of therapy and to feel connected to the present moment. All over the U.S., Singapore, India, Bulgaria, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Paris, London, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Mexico, Hawaii…that’s the U.S., but we had to put an extra stamp on there, so it feels worth noting. Canada.

I’m sending a booklet with an illustration that I made of a feeding cycle—when you feed a sourdough starter with flour and water it keeps it alive, active, and happy. It has instructions for how to reactivate it from theThree cats wear face mask shirt in contrast I will get this dried state and then how to maintain it once it’s active. There’s also a welcoming note that explains what sourdough is and where this particular starter is coming from—so it says it’s from New York state, it’s been fed with regional rye, whole wheat flour, and well-water. It also asks that if they share it, they consider letting us know so that we can continue to map it. Yes, it’s been the last two weeks straight. I’m exhausted, but then I’m like—wait. Everyone else in the world is too. It feels like a total gift to me though.
