Planting Paperwhites


 
Yesterday when I walked in the door at Carter & Co and saw the sprouting paperwhite bulbs pushing out to become flowers, I was reminded it is time to plant my paper white bulbs.

This is something I have been doing for so many years, I’ve forgotten when I started or why.

But I just love watching the paperwhite bulbs grow and present their flowers, even in the cold days of winter. It reminds me that no matter how cold and bare the world may seem at this moment, life is continuing on and new growth is on its way.
 


The Terrible Tangle of Food, Health, and the Economy, and How to Break Free


 
I’m going through an interesting shift right now that I want to share with you because I am coming out of an industrial orientation with this subject and into lifeliness.

I have had a lifelong struggle with overweight with this body…
This alternated with trying various weight loss diets of all sorts, which resulted in losing some weight but did nothing to re-orient me to a different way of eating or a new understanding about food, so I would just go back to eating whatever I wanted to eat and gain the weight back, plus more. This is the cycle for millions of people in the world today, particularly women.

It seems that in our modern industrial culture, food is considered something to be enjoyed rather than something that nourishes our body.


The Return of Gloves

Since learning from Dr. David Price that the most important factor for preventing transmission of covid-19 is to not get the virus on your hands, I’ve suddenly been a lot more aware of what I have been touching and wondering if the virus is on those surfaces.

It seems to me the most prudent thing would be to simply wear gloves all the time when I am out.

But a really don’t like those disposable plastic gloves.
