Hello all! First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who stopped by for the Sustainable Yard Tour.  I think we had about 100 or so people here, and a good time was had by all.    We met a lot of other garden geeks and seed savers, as well as a great number of local foodies and just all around cool people.   We were also able to connect with Andy from the International Institute, about the cool project they are doing, called the Global Farms Initiative. The International Institute Global Farms Initiative is an agriculture-based career training program for refugees with two training locations:...

Guerilla Gardening

Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the city.  Plus, you get strawberries. ~~ Ron Finley   Hello all!   In honor of Mother’s Day, I spent the weekend planting a crazy organic garden, playing in the dirt.  I planted about 60 or so cucumbers, aka Pickle Seeds.  I planted an equally ridiculous amount of tomatoes and assorted other edibles…  Some peppers, more salad greens, tons of sunflower seeds and a variety of other things.  The garlic I planted last fall is coming up like crazy, the herbs are on full display and things are blooming...

I’m Actually Not That Busy, Either

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Emotions, Fear, Happiness, Healing, Peace, ponderings, Spirituality | 3 comments

  Hello all! I saw this post and wanted to share it.   I’m coming off a several day silent retreat and this was a perfect reminder as I do re-entry. This is a a total cut and paste, I have added nothing to it.  The original post from SuperHero Life, by Andrea Scher, can be found  here.     Enjoy 🙂     This is my new mantra: I’m actually not that busy.   It doesn’t sound spiritual or like something you heard at your yoga class. It might not even feel true the first few times you say it!  But it’s changing my life.   My aha moment came when I saw this graphic...

You are not broken. You are more ready than you think.

Hello all.  This is a straight cut/paste from Mara Glatzel’s blog, and we thank her profusely for posting it.  So, if you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say? Without further ado, here is her beautiful post, the main site can be found here.  You Are Not Broken. You Are More Ready Than You Think. On Thursday, I came across a prompt from Erika Lyremark from The Daily Whip that said: If you had the world’s undivided attention for 10 seconds, what would you say?  My fingers started to itch and I clung to a voice that begged: your truth. 10 seconds....

Deserts and the Eight Worldly Dharmas

Hello all ! It’s been forever since I stopped by, so I thought I’d say hello.  Blogger Slacker, indeed!  Truthfully, I’ve been out living my life instead of blogging about it.  As part of those life adventures, I spent some time in the southwest, rambling around in the desert.   This picture was taken while hiking in the canyons of southern Utah, one of the most gorgeous places on the planet. I was thinking about the desert and my Utah trip this morning.  I love the southwest.  LOVE IT.   And as I proceed across the landscape of my life, with grief from recent deaths, lots...

Happy Solstice and Merry Happy Everything!

Hello all 🙂  Happy Solstice!  This is probably the last post of 2011 and  on this Day of Light,  I wanted to say hello and thanks for another great year. I also want to acknowledge what a difficult time of year this is for many of us, all over the planet.  So in this powerful time when we celebrate all of what it means that Light comes into the world,  perhaps a gentle reminder to  breathe and let yourself rest a bit.  Breathe and allow it to  replace that holiday tension with a holy relaxation and sacred calm.   This is the time of year when we are reminded to replace the fear and darkness...
