The Happy Place

The Happy Place

Good morning Brave hearts.

It is spring and soon you’ll be planting your garden. Cultivating the soil, choosing the seeds, selecting plants which will flourish in your temperate zone. The garden, an oasis of nourishment and organic delight. The pesticide free produce of your own dedicated labour.
Food! We take is so much for granted. It will be on grocery store shelves in a timely manner, someone else’s job to provide and protect us. Someone else’s occupation, to nourish and negotiate for us. Someone to stock shelves, to intermediate for us, between the wholesaler and the grower. Someone to bargain and to provide nutrient rich product every day. We take it so much for granted. There will always be grocery stores. There will always be food. Our international negotiations are secure.
Why the need for a garden then? Is it just a past time, just a labour of love, just a hobby, a romantic spot, a place to socialize and a place to concentrate on food production. A space where your favourite tree grows and reminds us of happy times, of memories of childhood and growing years. A garden! That special sanctuary of your home, where the lives of plants live, and fulfill their own duty to the planet.
The plants fulfill a destiny of their own. Nurtured and cared for, they will provide for you, in sickness and in health. Specialized plants for herbology, teas, food and fragrance, stimulating your senses, cleaning your air and nourishing your body.
The lives of plants, create their own environments, for insects, birds, animals and us. A planting for flowers, a planting for food, a planting for scent, scenery, self-indulgence. The garden is the oasis of special splendor, that creates that time-honored happy place.
Luscious plantings of medicinal herbs, of toxin free organic produce, of edible flowers and heady perfumes. The scent, the sound, the relaxation, the view. To stand in the garden and smell the aromatic scents. To relax the mind in peace and tranquility. To restore the balance of hectic living, to calm and balance.
Soon mother nature will shed her winters skin, of snow and ice, and open her door of warmth and sunshine. Soon the far away rays of winters sun will melt the frozen waters and heat the frozen ground. The earth will shed her blanket of snow and reveal the eager, early life below.
Soon, you will plant your garden. As you do so, take a moment of your time to think about food, to find a portion of your garden for food production, and to help to support the earth, in it’s duty to try to feed the growing human population, of the planet.

The Pilgrims

Good day, you brilliant ones.
The feasting of Thanksgiving is passing, but as with all traditions and their historical significance, the celebration is only a reminder of the truth of its existence. To give thanks for life itself is the meaning of the day. The joy of sharing, the happiness of celebration and the relief of a bountiful harvest. Food. No hunger, no starvation, no more worry for the winter.
Traditions arise from many sources, but a holiday to give thanks for the bountiful harvest, which will provide for all during the long winter, was a holiday of feasting and sharing, a holiday of community and a time to end all suffering. No disputes amongst us on these special days. The days when the earth is praised for the abundance that it provides, the days when the Almighty is praised for salvation and the days when community is praised for peace amongst us and all of the benefits that peace brings to our lives.
Historically, the first Thanksgiving took place with the pilgrims in the 1600’s. The joy and relief of a season of toil, was gifted with a plentiful harvest which would last throughout the winter. The negotiated peace was honoured and a lasting peace was accomplished.
Relief. The joy of such a simple achievement. Food. A garden. A party. Prayers, praises, blessings and thanks. The joy of such a simple accomplishment. Food.
With this first Thanksgiving came the hope and dreams of years to come. Aspirations to build a community, a colony, perhaps a country. A home of freedom. The constant call of beleagured peoples. Freedom!
The natives were friendly. There was peace amongst us.

http://www.history.com/topics/thanksgiving

Now, from the first season of toil, comes the wealth of the land. Prosperity! With relief and gladness they sang their songs of praises, of worship, of joy. No more the suffering of distant disputes, the hardships of unrequieted trust. The loss of honour and dignity. No more the distant call of a distant drummer, to beat the path to their own self worth. Now, for this small group of people, in their own chosen world is a haven of safety for themselves.
The natives are friendly. They signed the contract. There will be peace amongst us. So much to give thanks for, so much to have joy for , so much to live for. Paths of their own choosing, a destiny of their own calling, an all encompassing grace.
Joy to you, almighty man, for the achievement of a great landing. Joy to you, you great negotiators, you great peacekeepers. Praises to you for the harvest and the crops and the food and for plenty. Plenty, for your survival, plenty for your daily bread, plenty to share and to plenty to give thanks for. With solemn prayers and joyful hearts, we hear you from your brilliant past.
Hail to you, almighty human, for the songs in your hearts, for the brilliance of your minds and for the skills of negotiation. The negotiated peace is prosperity, humanity and your heartfelt joy.
Praises for the ancient landing, praises for peace amongst us, praises for Thanksgiving and to all of you.
Happy Thanksgiving.

The birthing grounds

The birthing grounds

Hear us! Calls the great wild! In your mind, in your conscience, we are yours. Hear us, almighty human, our mutual support protects this planet and together we are one.
We are your ancestors, your soul, your protection, your survival and your adventure. What great landscape thrives without us. Devoid of song, only the wind and the creaking trees, the rushing meditative sounds of streams and rivers, but no other life. No bird songs, no love calls, no chance for a glimpse of that animal majesty. No thrill of wonder at the beautiful creature. The docile doe and her shy fawn, the immense bear and her tiny cub. The howl of wolves and the chorus of coyotes. Not a sound.
The quiet rings with its earie silence. The showy flowers dazzle with brilliant colour. We are alone. Alone in the great wild, alone on the planet. Plunder no more, it`s gone forever.
The earth song of the creatures of the night has vanished. The daily sightings of wildlife is a memory of the aged mind. Imagination.
Lost to traffic, environmental damage, habitat loss, global warming, plunder and greed. The small fish flee from the nets cast out and squirm and wriggle to be free. Still the catch is plenty, but the tiny ones are gone. Too small and delicate for the harsh handling. A life too difficult to conquer.
The plunder of the birthing grounds is a challenge too great to bear.
Here, sighs the great planet. Your stomachs are full. Full of the offspring of adults long gone. A last birthing place, now silent. For you mankind long for the setting sun and the endless restful waves. The constant splashing and rocking, the peace, the tranquility, the calm. Your minds are clear and peace becomes you. The ocean fills you with meditative peace.
Gone are the voices of the disturbing birds, the call of their insistent racket. They steal your prey and fly off with your catch. The mighty whale sinks to the ocean floor, his food source vanished and love song dies.
Here! Almighty human, we know your name! cries the great planet. The creatures don’t please you. Only the wind, the rain, the storm, that’s all you want, that’s all that there will be. The birthing ground is plundered and no life will be saved.
EAT! Your stomachs will be full! EAT!

http://www.asoc.org/issues-and-advocacy/ross-sea-preservation

There is plenty, groans the planet. There is plenty.
The wild creatures hear your command, oh great mankind. You are the master, you are the champion, you are supreme. For you we vanish, we die, we perish. For you we stop breading, we stop eating, we stop being. For you are the master and we are nothing. We will stop eating your daily catch, stop intruding your playful waters, stop singing our songs of joy.
We loved the planet. We lived and played here, but now we are gone.

We beg no more. You almighty man have conquered and the great planet sighs and gives in. We are gone.

The call of the wild

The call of the wild

Good Morning Bravehearts

As summer wanes to an end, your new adventures unfold.  The mighty landscape calls to us in its endearing voice.  Come to the challenge almighty human.   I call to you with the voices of all of my being.  The wind and rain, the voices of the wild creatures, the song that sings in your heart.  Hear me almighty human!, calls the great planet, a new adventure  for this day.

The fall signals the change of season, the early morning air  has a crisp chill and presents another danger.  Cold.  Be prepared.

The mountain creatures protect us from our exuberant, impulsive selves.  Don’t venture alone.  The wild landscape is a dauntless master, full of pitfalls.  Changeable weather, hypothermia, injury, cold waters, rough landscape.  The powerful predator reminds us, don’t venture alone.

We inhabit this great place, we are the keepers of these lands.  Your bullets might harm us, but we protect you.  Your image of us in your minds, remind you, don’t travel alone..  The powerful, swift, predator, the bear the cougar, the wary hunters the wolves all remind us of the dangers of the wild, but the wildlife can’t protect you from yourselves.  Don’t bother with your rifles almighty human, don’t travel alone.  Your rifles won’t protect you from the sudden change in weather, from burning sun to sudden squalls of rain, hail and snow.  The path becomes slick with mud and slippery footing causes injury.  The beating rain freezes your hands, your body and the wet rain soaks your skin.  You can’t escape the cold.  Leave your guns at home.  The predator can see you, but your own skills will save you.  Be prepared.

The fall brings out a new dimension in travel.  The seasonal change charges the wildlife with new purpose.   The hungry bears forage for food to increase their fat stores for long winter hibernation.

A call rings throughout the land.  A love song, a challenge, a call of competition.  The elk have started to rut and the mighty animal starts to herd  the females.  These are mine! he calls to the wind and he awaits the response of his foe.  The mighty foe responds with courage and the battle unfolds.  This is a dangerous time.  The wild life are focused on their perpetual survival.  The need for creation controls them and they surge with power.  No docile being is this immense creature.  They call the challenge to fight, to control the herd, to dominate, to win their might, their majesty, their right to mate.  The will to survive, to pass on the genetics of strength and of beauty.  The call of the challenge, the clash of the antlers, the battles, the dueling.  Don’t venture near. They charge intruders, animal life ,humans and sometimes vehicles.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOaJ-wbMoRM

There are others, the sheep and the deer will mate as well.  The clack of their horns as they charge at each other.  Be careful!  They are dangerous, these are wild times.  The once wary animals are too focused on survival.  Be careful almighty human, caution in your travels, be prepared.

Environment Week

Environment Week

http://www.ec.gc.ca/sce-cew/

Listen to the Earth song.  The rapture, the glory.  The song from the mighty planet, it fills our lives.  Hear the sounds of the planet, with joy, with gladness.  Great, bountiful Earth with songs of praises, songs of joy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCJ5DwPWIIw

The brilliant, beautiful displays of colour.  All the hues of the forest, all the vibrance of the meadows,  all the showy flowers and the cascading waters.  The Earth.  So magnificent, so powerful.  All life comes  to us from this mighty planet.

Here, you awesome planet, the oasis for us.  We live our lives with gratitude, with compassion. For the world presents itself with boundless  discovery!  Each day gives us the opportunity for more knowledge, more sport, more information, more aptitude.  The mighty Earth with its seasons and  changes.  The great, good Earth, how to praise it.

This week, this short space in time, we contemplate the protection of the planet. How to save it, how to save ourselves.  One short week of sharing ideas, information and knowledge.  Too little.  To take a week out of our year to concentrate on environmental protection, is  not enough time.  In the lifespan of the mighty planet,  the needs for protection of the planet is constant.

Constant striving for zero pollution, constant striving for human population control, constant striving to reduce the impacts of development.

Environment week praises the planet for all of life.

http://www.edmonton.ca/environmental/programs/environment-week.aspx

Thank  you, sighs the great planet, Earth, for the protection of that ecosystem. for unpolluted waters, unpolluted skies, unpolluted soil.  Thank you for no plunder, all life survives.  Thank you, almighty human, for compassion, nurturing, reforestration.  Without the forest, the planet will suffocate, it will die.  Without oxygen in the mighty ocean, it will die.

The mighty planet sighs, with the burden of pollution.  Too much for its natural abilities to recover.  Too much waste, too much plunder.  Too much hardship for the great planet.  It’s immense variety of animal life is being destroyed, it’s wonderful  forests, for air to breathe are vanishing,  it’s mighty oceans are dying.

Brilliant mankind, sighs the great planet.  Thank you for your efforts.  Each ecosystem is fragile, each is needed, each is a creation of its own divinity.  Each is a refuge to a world of it’s own.

Brilliant mankind, sight the great planet.  Thank you for environment week, even this small gesture, is worthy of praises.

The Brave

The Brave

To be brilliant, we need a forum for our aptitude.  An arena to vocalize in some manner.  We need a contingency of experts to hear us, to applaud, to praise and to acknowledge.  We need our voices to be heard.

Through the thousands of years of human history, our voices have been acknowledged by our fellow man.  Hear us, we call to each other, our splendid negotiations keep  peace amongst us and our lives never fail.

SSSh!  There’s a secret.  Our technologies are superior.  The vast oceans have been transversed and a new land is discovered.  Our superior technologies and our superior negotiations surpass all.  We are the bold adventurers who discovered a new continent.  It’s not an island, it’s a land mass.  The oceans surrounding it’s shores are filled with sealife.  So much food, we’ll never starve.  Our nets are cast and they never come up empty.  They overflow!  Food.  Food for everyone and perhaps, a colony?

http://www.history-timelines.org.uk/places-timelines/09-canadian-history-timeline.htm

The first adventurer to discover this land, the bold, the daring, the brave.  So much courage to set sail for sights unknown, to travel the great distance with such obvious perils, yet to persevere.  On and on to travel (with lost confusion?) possibly.  Hopeless, forlorn?  To battle the waves, the wind, the current, the time, the hunger, the fear.  Yet to travel on.  Somewhere, there will be shelter.

The new land was a relief and by the skills of their intelligence, they could find it again.  Technological experts of their time, they were equipped for sea travel.  The ocean was also a home, of sorts, so familiar, so abundant.  It kept the sailors perpetually occupied.  So much to see, so much to know.  Exceptional navigators, they always had their berings right.  The life of the sailor was the life of a daring, unsurpassed adventurer.  So much to know, so much to experience.  The navigator, the sailor, the specialist at wind and current, the immense expanse of universe in the stars, the far off places, the challenge of unknown people, places, language, culture. The superior call to a daring, brilliant mankind, who dared it all.

Yes! The call to the wild.  Yes! the call to a challenge beyond the ability of the average man.  Yes!  The call to the dauntless, bold adventurer whose bravery was unparalleled.  Yes!  To find new continents.  Yes!  To find new treasurers.  Yes!  To the wealth of knowledge, wealth and treasures of the world.

No to anarchy.  No to slavery. No, to life that is complacent, quiet.  No to the homebody.  Yes, only to the adventure and whatever life its brings!

They will travel the seven seas.  They will forge new relationships.  They  will conquer new lands.  They will swim in unchartered waters.  All perils will be overcome!  Yes!  They will achieve,  Yes!  They will.  Nothing will stop the relentless adventurer!  Nothing will quench that spirit!

They paddled their ships to the new world.  They paddled for discovery.  Later they sailed.

Endangered Species Day

Endangered Species Day

Good morning, oh brilliant one.

This day is not a gesture, not a complacent whim of hope.  This day, May 17th is a day for the celebration of the creative powers of the Earth.  A day to notice and to communicate the awesome gift of the planet.

Fabulous planet, full of life and energy.  Ever creating, ever nurturing, always pursuing the dauntless challenge of filling the void with life, all life.  The cherished great planet fills all of its surfaces with life and places each life form in accordance with the environment that it belongs to.  The environment that it protects.

The national day for endangered species speaks to the topics of the health of the planet.  Why are they dying?  The planet needs what it creates to survive, almighty man and the planet creates an abundance of plant and animal life for the survival of all life on the planet.  Each and every species was created to survive.  The cunning specialist who’s adaptability places them in extreme conditions.  The constant cold, the constant heat, the constant wind, the constant rain, the snow, the perils of weather, habitat loss, hunger, predation and more.  Only the skillful creature, whose adaptability is strong will survive.

But is that all we are?  Survival of the fittest.  As the world changes, the need for our compassion increases.  As the forests shrink, so does our own human habitat.  Less air, less oxygen.  As these animals decline, so does the health of the planet.  How many environmental diseases spring up due to polluted waters, polluted air, less oxygen, more waste.

The natural world is a vital, healthy world.  A world full of drama as each being acts out its own role in creation.  Almighty human, where are we?

We are far beyond acting out our role in survival, but not beyond the perils of endangering ourselves.  Good health fails us as we struggle against pesticides, insecticides, emissions.  We are the mighty ones, we are in control.  The plight of the planet presents itself  in the peril of the endangered life forms.  It can’t replenish them as fast as they fail.

Another animal who suffers starvation due to habitat loss, another animal who won’t mate and reproduce due to hunger.  Another forest gone another waterway polluted.

visit;  http://www.earthsendangered.com/list.asp  for todays list of endangered species.

Almighty human, your common sense is the highest of all of creation.  The gift of the planet is magnificent.  The songs of the wildlife sings to you.  The gentle breezes play at your senses and the scent of the flowers fills your mind and soothes your soul with aromatherapy.  What dread befalls us without the creation of the Earth.  Dust to dust, we will follow them.

Hear their call, almighty human.  They need us for their own survival, but we need them as well.

Food Part 3

Food Part 3

Food, Part 3

Her neighbour has the same amount of land. On this plot he houses seven pigs, one boar and six sows for regular pig production. Usually there are 16 maturing pigs, 16 young pigs and 16 piglets at a time. In the first year, they produce 48 piglets which he will raise large enough to provide meat for himself and some to sell. He has a smoke house for making ham and bacon, so his product is highly valued and he easily sustains himself.
The hides are tanned for leather. He also has a garden and an orchard. His trees are four crabapple, a mountain ash and a chokecherry. He puts in a hedge of raspberry and plants rhubarb, potato, corn for flour and pig food and other root vegetables. He will easily survive. There is enough fruit for pies, jam and pemican ( if needed) He will also trade with his neighbours some spun wool for smoked meat. All of this on a small plot of land 100’x100′.
The next property is a gardener. He puts in his crops of potato and other vegetables. He turns most of his property into a vegetable garden. He has to have his sheep, goat and chickens to survive, but they are kept in a small pen behind his house. He starts vegetables indoors and plants in containers, as well to add to his yield. There are zuccini, pumpkin and squash. He also plants lavendar and roses and starts a soap production. He purchases a still to make purfumes.
The next property is a goatherd. He has six goats on his land. His primary purpose is dairy. The goats provide milk for cheese, cottage cheese, yogourt, butter, milk and ice cream. He plants currants, raspberry, blueberry, saskatoon and oregano, savory, dill, mint ,thyme, sage and chives. He needs the berries to flavour his yogourt and ice cream and spice to flavour his cheese. He has plenty for trade and sale.
All of this without a tractor or a rotatiller.
These people all needed to gather seeds to plant their gardens.
Fortunatley, there are many seed companies to access online instead. visit:http://www.StokesSeeds.com or http://www.mckenzieseeds.com for information and to purchase seeds for your gardens.
There is now a growing trend to plant gardens in small garden plots, provided by the community. More and more people are becoming aware of the need for fresh, organic produce to help them survive. Planting and growing gardens has intrinsic rewards, as well as the obvious reward of the food production. The city of Hamilton, Ontario has set aside garden plots for decades, for those garden enthusiasts who don’t have land of their own. To see it for yourself, visit, http://www.growinggreenhamilton.com.
If you’re interested in garden plots in your own community, contact your local municipal government for information. Usually, if there are garden plots already available, this information is online if you google, community garden plots, food societies or garden plots, in your area.
For those of you with larger properties who are looking for trees and plants, there are some northern nurseries that have zone friendly plants.
Please visit: http://www.cheyennetree.ca and also, http://www.kiwinurseries.com. The Kiwi Nursery is the only one that I’ve seen who has black walnut, if it interests you.

The Cultural Exchange – Page 2

What can you learn about this ancient man. From what aspect will you explore, multi-faceted man?
Always, from your aptitude, adopt a nation, investigate their culture, food, music, art, dance, architecture, special and protected places. Their philosophies, civilizations and environments. Are they prosperous? Are they balanced? Population vs environment. Are they starving? Is the Earth able to provide for their needs? Do they need the Sustainability Plan for Food? If they do, help with gifts of seeds for their plantings. Are they able to save the Earth so that it can survive? All of the protected environments save the Earth. The Earth needs it space to breathe.
Strengthening international ties boosts morale, it excites new interests.
Share this culture with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and whoever else you can. Seek likeminded people in your own country to establish a strong network and to increase your exposure and support group. This will increase your international support and fellowship as well.
Don’t become distracted. The world needs your focused, intelligent mind. Don’t get caught up in scandals, scams or dare. Don’t allow prostitutes. No requests against us. Your peacekeeping efforts must reflect your goodwill at home and with the world beyond your doors.
The world is to be explored. Rejoice! Live your lives with great joy! Celebrate often. Share with your fellows. Even the joy of a birthday celebration, should be shared with as many as possible. Don’t overlook the opportunity for joy, fellowship and goodwill.
From your very best aptitude, research, explore and educate. What stories will they share? Learn and exchange. What lies beneath the surface of this modern man? What is this great place? How do we save these great landscapes, so the Earth won’t perish? We save the Earth, so that the Earth will save us. Is there pollution? Is there disease? These are also key areas to address.
Oh, this great human being, who walks so proudly, taming animals, harvesting crops , building empires. Productivity, education. All individually, all united, all of one mind, all of one species, all over the world. So much the same.
Here, you peacekeepers, the differences are zero. Adopt a culture, present your own.
Help them to rebuild in their own nation. Don`t encourage immigration. It is better for the world for each nation to cultivate their own civilization. Keep people in their own country so that there’s no inferiority, A wholesome exchange to increase prosperity without interfering with or becoming judgmental towards their culture. Perhaps they have a sustainable nation, without obvious displays of wealth, but not as much poverty either.
No man in isolation. Everyone has friends, family, connections The inter-connected world is a small, better understood and more harmonious world.
The land they live in belongs to them. The Earth helped these people create the country that they have. They are better off to try to thrive in the country that they live in, than to leave. Don’t encourage immigration.  Don`t criticize, help them to nurture their own world.
The sharing of cultures is a gift. From your aptitude learn from them, but share as well. Your goal is no more poverty, no more starvation, no slaves, save the environment. Don`t be judgmental. The cultural exchange is a nurturing process. It`s care. Care to build hope, care to follow through, care to develop and foster a kindred spirit that will light your life forever.
