I was born into this life completely in love with you and all your beautiful aspects. No leaf, sprout, grain of sand or tiny insect escaped my notice and adoration. Growing up I spent countless hours outside, soaking you up with all of my senses. To this day it is to you that I turn in times of trouble, when I am completely overwhelmed by this human life. 20 years ago I was lucky enough to go to a marvellous Earth Day celebration in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I delighted in the excitement of the tribe, the desire to take immediate action to care for you. 20 years later, I sit in my office in Houston, Texas on this Earth Day staring into my computer, cut off completely from your life-giving sun, pushing paper from your beautiful trees all for the financial benefit of another...and I wonder what happened to my intense loyalty? When did the earthsong in my heart go silent? When did I pretend to stop feeling every crime against you deep in my own bones? When did I forget that action is the expression of self? I came here with so much purpose and passion. Today I am remembering my heart's desire...my passion is rekindled and I turn back toward the original meaning of my life with Joy. You give me my wondrously beautiful life...I will from this day on do my very best to give you yours.
your wild earthchild

Check out this past weekend's half-share from the Rawfully Organic Co-op! I wasn't planning on buying in this weekend, but Kristina kindly let me know they had extra boxes and I couldn't pass this up! The offerings this time included:
LOCAL ORGANIC: strawberries, broccoli, red & green lettuces, basil, kale, spinach, beets, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, mizuna, dill
ORGANIC: swiss chard, apples, bell peppers, oranges, grapefruit, kiwis, pears, zucchinis, pineapples, bananas, avocado, carrots, celery
Everything in the box was just wonderful!

strawberries, tomatoes, oranges, grapefruit, avocado, bananas, kale, mizuna, lettuce, cabbage, celery, basil, broccoli, cucumber, carrots, apples, squash...many of these are locally grown - all are organic. You can order a whole share if you need more yumminess than this, as well as being able to purchase extra goodies when you pick up your share. And the cost is so much less than if I purchased all this food at the local Whole Foods or even the farmer's market. I am so excited to have found this amazing resource for healthy food...the fact that it is organic and often locally grown just makes it that much better. And the gal who runs this operation is so fun, friendly & vibrant that it's a joy to interact with her. If you're in Houston, definitely check out the Co-op...if not, research co-ops in your area - you'll be so glad you did! Thanks, Kristina! :)

Yesterday I learned...
...time off with your loved one is the best thing in life, and it's ok for me to dream again!
Saturday I learned...
...to not always talk myself out of going to social events, that I CAN have intelligent conversations with people, that the principles of synchronicity / the "Secret" / manifesting are all based in reality and it can happen for me, and that there is hope for healing! Besides which I was reminded that I am with the most awesome & handsome man on the planet.

This is a truly wonderful video by the Chicago Botanic Garden, showing just how easy it is to grow incredibly nutritious greens at home. I get so bogged down in the apparent complexities advanced by websites that have something to sell that I end up too confused to even try.
Yay for the inherent simplicity that is life on Mother Earth!
I have a jar of alfalfa sprouts growing at home right now, on day 3 and doing great!

*Raw Tortilla Soup, recipe by Gena of Choosing Raw...found on the Crazy Sexy Life blog:
I am thankful for my lovely day at home...for rest, the company of my beautiful kitties, a beautiful home to enjoy and care for, the financial ability to shop for food, the physical ability to clean my house and prepare food for my family, the sound of windchimes coming in the open back door, the simple beauty of a mid-day house full of sleeping kitties & sunbeams, bicycles, and my wonderful man coming home to me.
