Liver Support

I saw a Chinese herbalist for my PMS. For the last week I’ve taken 9 different concentrated herbs in a (disgusting) daily tea.

Sang Ji Sheng (taxillus chinensis [branch with leaf]) Huang Jing (polygonatum kingianum [rhizome]) Fu Chao Zhi Qiao (citrus aurantium [mature fruit, prepared]) Bai Shao (paeonia lactiflora [root]) Ji Xue Teng (spatholobus auberectus [stem]) Dan Shen (salvia multiorrhiza [root & rhizome]) Xiang Fu (cyperus rotundus [rhizome]) Chai Hu (bupleurum chinense [root]) Nu Zhen (igustrum lutidum [fruit, prepared])

New to Me

I don’t think I’ve seen either of these types of prints in person but would love to. I came across the terms in Contact Sheet, the Light Work Annual 2009 No. 152.

Piezography is a brand of monochromatic inks and software that produce what is unarguably the absolute highest-standard in black and white printing.

Atelier Fresson prints are carbon prints. “A carbon print is a photographic print produced by soaking a carbon tissue in a dilute sensitizing solution of potassium dichromate. The solution also consists of carbon, gelatin, and a coloring agent. The process was created as a result of print fading in early photographic processes, and was patented in 1864 by Joseph Wilson Swan” (wikipedia.org).

All of the grad students presented ~5 minutes worth of work (15 seconds x 20 slides from portfolio or summer internship). One of my classmates, Helgi Kristinsson, presented 2 projects with the word ‘pelagic’. The work obviously had to do with water, but I had to look the word up.
