So I was all about the blah blah blah of the meaning of life and reading the Bhagavad Gita and Conversations with God
and my experience last weekend of Revival at the Abyssinian Baptist Church on Friday and kirtan with Krishna Das on Saturday.
Then on Thursday, Yogini Shannon reminded me of Ruth Stout.
I first read about Ruth and her mulching ways in Mother Earth News a few years ago.
At that time in my life, her easy laborless form of gardening struck me as snake oil being peddled out of the back of a truck.
In and amongst reading about Rudolf Steiner and biodynamic gardening according to the moons phases
and Bill Mollison and permaculture I thought, like everything else in life,
if it's not torture and exhausting and complicated and completely unattainable
well, it just must not be worth it.
I think I know better now
it's totally worth the 20 minutes to watch her in action
I wanna be this lady when I grow up.
Or better yet, be her now.
How fuckin awesome is she?

Still here. Not going dark. No way.
Life is just super busy with a lot of Unbloggable and a lot of... Life.
It's all ok. We're all ok.
But Life is taking all my time and if I were a writer I might say I'm having writer's block.
I guess I'm having blogger's block. I haven't even visited you all. I miss you.
I've always been terrible at sending Thank-You cards.
Like I just don't do it.
An enormous and embarrassingly belated Thank You to all you Fierce Warrior Women
who sent so much love and support after my last post.
And thank you for leaving Mia so much bloggy love as well. It filled some of her loneliness.
You are all miracles. You are all angels.
And I am so grateful for my connection to every single one of you.
I'll be back soon
Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
