I stood there and got lost. Didn’t even move my feet.

"What do I do for a living? I live for a living. When I moved out in the forest 35 years ago, people said "You can’t escape reality." I went TO reality. You’re living in a virtual reality. You don’t even know where your stuff comes from, don’t even know where your poop goes.I live in nature where everything is connected, circular. The seasons are circular. The planet is circular…Do people live in circles today? No. They live in boxes. They wake up every morning in a box of their bedrooms because a box next to them started making beeping noises to tell them it was time to get up. They eat their breakfast out of a box and then they throw that box away into another box.  Then they leave the box where they live and get into another box with wheels and drive to work, which is just another big box broken into little cubicle boxes where a bunch of people spend their days sitting and staring at the computer boxes in front of them. When the day is over, everyone gets into the box with wheels again and goes home to the house boxes and spends the evening staring at the television boxes for entertainment. They get their music from a box, they get their food from a box, they keep their clothing in a box, they live their lives in a box.”-Eustace Conway

So my giant mountain friends you will be green again. Your creek banks full of branch lettuce for me to fry in the pan. Turkey’s will nest and deers will rest in your mossy beard patches.

Today was my grannies 90th birthday church party. So after the festivities and socializing with kin, I ran to woods to look for arrowheads and rocks to make my own. Then to the barns to take in the barn smell I love so much.

The past, has come around. Must have been 3 years ago that I went to celebrate a life. 90 years. 70 some years of marriage. #tb
