I had wanted to make it a part of the assignment to take a picture of the person I’m meeting, but I’ve realized that that can be the most stressful part of the interaction. I don’t want to make people uncomfortable, so I’ll have to come up with another way to visualize and record the process.

Today I had a conversation with the man at the Whole Foods meat counter, about how he would recommend making split pea soup with a lamb shank rather than a ham bone.

I think I need more definition around what it means to “meet someone”, because I keep feeling like I’m cheating.
