How we experience purchases of coffee and baked goods may sound fairly trivial, and elitist. But, based on my current immersion in the south of France, I have come to think these simple interactions offer valuable lessons for how to live in neighborhoods and cities.

The Chinese river dolphin has disappeared before our eyes within only two generations. Will we change course before other branches on the tree of life die off?
