Ripple size.

Filed under: Aspects, Observations — work in progress @ 7:46 am

As some where agonizing the change being denied and others relieved from the reject, I had an insight about change.  This small act of refusal to sign a law is a small seed.  From that seed grows the stalk to a trunk forming a shade to alter those around it.  I sensed the shift.  There were those who wanted to preserve the world they knew.  They tried to make a change.  But others wanted to continue the shift.  Little changes, they must be stopped.  If you dont they ripple and those ripples change the image we see.  Its why refusal to accept is akin to surrender,  its already too late.

Influence

Filed under: Aspects — work in progress @ 8:57 am

I was watching a news clip regarding camps for those that oppose US policy and influence.  The film was a view of people physically training and being active.  Nothing really substantial or threatening in my judgment.   I believe substantial change can only come through opposition and resistance at a more low level. Personal choices and influence on a local and micro state.  This would mean using law and local participation to conduct a meaningful method to stop being lead by corporations or Non-governmental entities.  Yes spectacular results will generate a ripple but it does not really alter the world towards an aim or goal. You must have a plan, step by step, overview of where to go forward.  Know the protocol then subvert from within. This is true change, not a confrontation to which can only end, it must be sustained.

As I do a retrospect of what and where I have been and going, I pause.  I do know where I would like to be and how to get there.  I am not weak or ignorant, just lazy.  Thus this must change.

I am planning on a long journey.  So I plan and prepare to move forward.  Side or diagonal, I will not step back.  I must move forward. Slowly with small and large strides, I go.

Goals are to loose weight, eat well, grow in strength and wonder, learn and use my skills to help others, be a better husband, son and brother, uncle, friend, and listener.  I do this for selfish reasons, my own. So it begins.

Mulche, mulche

Filed under: Garden — work in progress @ 9:39 am

Thanks to my instructor, I have found a place that distributes free mulch for the taking.  Close to work and full Mexicans, I feel at home. I have done 3 loads so far and the old lady is happy.  I don’t know how long it will take to alter the soil in the back.

My compost is getting full of just fruit, vegetables, paper, bark, leaves and insects.  Its moist again.  I will probably try to add some earthworms soon. Its for the best. Just have to keep at it. Over and over, again and again.

Another year, another post.

Mesquite trees, plants and herbs

Filed under: Garden, Observations — work in progress @ 8:54 pm

My mesquite trees are now expanding and appear to be on the edge of uncontrollable.  Front tree is bulging out and needs to be trimmed again. I wanted it top heavy but maybe tall. I have to work on it. My back  trees need to be pruned. One is now to heavy to the side and leaning. Kinda of worried but its nature. The gardens are cycling through there course and while 1 is in twilight, the next middle aged, youngest one is exploding.  Strange how life is displayed in the 3 gardens.  I know nothing is forever and they have provided but they  are not immortal. I remember Carl Sagans’ Cosmos quote about how early astronomers believed the stars to be forever.  Cycles.  For every ending is a beginning so maybe there is no line but a being.  I am sure security forces touched on this when they scream, “We don not die, we regroup in Hell.”  The herbs living in the container are having a hard time getting established. Trying different methods to get them to propregrate and live.  Some have the will and some dont.  Accept it.

flat and gray.

Filed under: Tobias — work in progress @ 9:23 am

I woke up today and didn’t see much.  Its pretty flat where woke up.  Gray floor that is polished smooth.  Grains of white, tan and light gray.  I don’t see much use of growing anything here.  In the distance i see this kinda of red faded look and then this big black column that just goes up and up and up…..

I think I’ll try to get a message out today. Not really worried about food.

support and self reliance

Filed under: Observations, randomness — work in progress @ 9:19 am

So I get it from my friends who have adult kids.  They want to make it easier and support their children throughout life, or not.   What can I say?

I don’t believe in it and always ask them to adopt me because I can cook AND clean.   Or at the very least give me a stipend.

Something the Marines tell the recruits resonates in me when I hear them say they continue to support their children.  Its like this, ‘comfort is an illusion, it robs the mind and soul of determination.’  Better to guide them than to regal them with decisions.  Better to have choices than questions about when is the next dole.  They say I am bitter and hurt on the inside.

True, maybe.  But I don’t run to mommy and daddy when I got bills and a family.  I determine my fate and do not answer to anyone for my decisions.
