One Amazing Thing I've Done

hum, probably just modestly amazing days and nights in the desert, on the sea, or in the mountains--

Teach, Learn, Share

1. i know a few trees; do you? let's trade! 2. i am aware of at least three delicious ways to prepare kale. 3. (and if your standards are pretty low,) i can teach you how to cook some international delicious things, too! 4. (...from places i've never been, so they're actually adaptations from the nation of me, i guess.) 5. i can make a decent camping shelter from a tarp and some rope! 6. i can teach you how to fold an origami bear. so can youtube, but i am made of real adult.
