135/365. a wonderful surprise birthday party.

jerome, the bearded white wizard is telling a story about his son jerry ( sitting to his left in blue to the right of the fire ). we very much surprised jerry for his 50th birthday party. jerome and jerry are both very special people at organic valley.

as a side note, i’m wearing a green cape that says “captain grassmilk”, neon green socks, green shorts and green shirt. long story.

69/365. improbably, my disembodied hands still hang in the cafe at organic valley hq.

it till amuses me that around 6 years ago I took a photo of me stealing peas from theresa marquez’s organic valley employee garden plot ( she was then the ov chief marketing officer ) and somehow it ended up on the wall of our employee cafe ( seen here on the left ). And even more improbably it survived the hq fire from a few years ago, and was put back up after the rehab and redesign of the cafe after the fire.

waaaaay down the hill on the right is louise hemstead, organic valley’s chief operating officer. i can’t believe i missed getting a photo of her jumping on a sled and ripping down the hill. fun time with great people in a lovely setting. i haven’t sledded on a hill this big since I was a kid at my grandparent’s home in jonesboro, maine.

it’s impossible to convey the beauty of the view from the top of the ridge just a mile from my desk at organic valley. maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.

the view of the classic driftless region geography makes for quite an energizing “out and back” lunch run even on a dull day, all the more so when it’s sunny, green and lush.

do yourself a favor and view large on a big screen.
