Great list, i'd like to contribute one I just finished up that was recommended to me by a friend titled The Evolution of Robert Carr by Paul K. Lovett: http://www.paulklovett.com/. It deals with the concept of human neural enhancement, and the implications of this technology. What happens when the human brain becomes obsolete? These are real issues that we will truly face in the future, which makes the book very poignant. Check it out!

Such a great list! Happy to say I've only read a few, I always love finding other recommendations! One of my forever-favorites is "The Secret History" by Donna Tartt! Also always love anything postmodern by Kazuo Ishiguro ("The Unconsoled") or Italo Calvino ("If on a winter's night a traveler"). "Bel Canto" by Anne Patchett. "Tales of the Jazz Age" by F Scott Fitzgerald (if you're looking for short stories). "Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore" by Robin Sloan is a really fun read too! "The Way The Crow Flies" or "Fall On Your Knees" by Ann-Marie MacDonald are incredible. Goodreads is a great resource for finding new books as well! It's been a big help for me to keep track of what I've read and what I still want to read or if I can't figure out what to read next.

Hello FP! This story about Kate is inspiring and it is so cool to gain insight to the people who make your company fantastic. However, I must say it needs a huge grammar check, there are mistakes everywhere! I don't know if that is just the "style" of the spread, but there were moments where the errors were distracting from the meaning and the intention of the article. If you need to hire someone to proof read your articles, here's an English major ready for action ;)

Although the growing interest in metaphysics—specifically the healing properties of crystals—is AMAZING, it’s scary to know that pieces like this are being written because it sheds light on the fact that there’s an abundance of wrong information about this topic on the Internet. Writing about metaphysics in general is hard because many/ most Internet sources regarding the topic aren’t trustworthy. Deciphering what info is and isn’t correct is tough because, unlike what we’re taught in school, Internet domains don’t help weed out what sources are proper and which aren’t—those rules don’t apply at all. The website the person above me mentioned, “Crystal Vaults,” is the best online source I’ve found yet. But if crystal healing is something you really want to get in to, I recommend going the old fashion route and *GASP* reading books by notable authors. There are some fun, educational and enlightening books that explain what energies are correlated with which stones; what crystals are most beneficial for you depending on what emotional/spiritual/physical ailments or blockages you may have; and how to connect with the healing energies of crystals and the spiritual world. That’s why it’s crucial to know the correct metaphysical properties of each stone and what they’re used for. Otherwise it’s possible to have unfulfilling and/or potentially terrifying experiences. Thus, cleansing your stones after you use them (like after meditating, taking them out in public, letting people hold them, etc.) is essential because they have a sponge-like quality in terms of energy absorption. Kyanite and Citrine are the only two stones that don’t need cleansing, as the person above me also stated. But most high vibration crystals—specifically SELENITE—must be cleansed frequently because of it’s ability to help one connect to the spiritual world. Additionally, it’s more likely that Selenite will keep you up before going to bed, as opposed to help you sleep because it is SUCH a high vibration crystal. Amethyst, on the other hand, is perfect before bed, as it’s a dream stone and one that channels calming energy. Last note: Do your research before connecting with Smokey quartz and always use it with Citrine and a protection stone, like Jade or Turquoise. Good luck and have the best time exploring your crystals <3

I live just down the road from here in an off-grid strawbale home. Living off-grid has its challenges but the peace of mind offered through life in a low-impact home is incomparable. The main challenge as I see it to adopting this life-style is the incredible isolation that it can necessitate. Since moving to the Taos Mesa, I have never experienced such a challenging time finding community or connecting with others. I hope that in the future this will not be the case and that as more and more folks make the switch to rural and off-grid living, new and vibrant networks of support will spring up to fulfill the deeply human need for interconnectedness, not just with the Land but with one another.

A little lie begets another little lie is what's the matter. This entire post was very ill conceived. The collaboration could have been done in a lot of other ways (a dream sequence for example) that would have been transparent as well as beautiful & genuine. Diary writings about the wedding day with a blog post & Instagram pictures that were not the wedding day is a straight up misrepresentation. Especially from a brand / blog that espouses being authentically who you are. What does being free mean to you? Also, most of the blog posts this summer have showed almost no people of color. Is the FP brand / blog that homogenized? C’mon now! FP marketing folks need to reevaluate their direction on all fronts.
