Life is a glorious rainbow….

kerin rose, HenryCreeping around my little garden to-day ( the one behind my house…not the big farming plot I work on!) I feel overwhelmed with gratitude…for the large and the small things that make up my life….having lived large chunks of my life in both concrete jungle, and high desert,  I realize daily the depths to which I completely took  some things for granted..

Which is not to say that I didnt give a hoot about the earth…I recycled way before it bacame ‘popular’..I used ‘natural’ cleaning products, etc etc…but it WASN’T until I laid a table for dinner one  day a few years ago, that I looked at the spread, and realized that I had GROWN  every single thing I was looking at with my own two hands ( with some help from my sister…we work the garden, the big one, together)…for me, this moment was akin to being hit by lightning…it was a revelation…me+water+soil+seeds+sun=food ….

I often wonder how it is possible to not care?…to  choose not to tread as lightly as possible on this Mother Earth?…as we are she and she is us…..my heart breaks sometimes when I think of what we have done….and  I believe ,  that if every one of us had to grow at least some of their own food…it would help us to understand..and  make the connection…. I believe it is the ‘easy way out’ to remain disconnected…..life is a rainbow of colors…and we are all a part of it…

Hoping your day is beautiful…namaste…xo K

  1. My day is more beautiful just now after seeing all the color that surrounds you. Even your toes look happy and may I add that it is lovely to see Mr H free of his collar! xoxo

  2. MLJ….the color here in summer is unbelievable…really…like being in an emerald garden…I hope you can see it one day!….
    and
    Umber…you know it!
    xo to you both!

  3. I feel the same way about people who eat meat…If they had to kill it, clean it, etc…Would they eat it still? Even just having to do so once would make people understand more, appreciate more…It would bring honesty to the table…So to speak.

    I wish I had a sister and huge plot of land to grow with her. This makes my heart swell with an emotion I can not name.

    Kerin,
    I love the way you live. Thank you so much for being here with me! 🙂 On Earth, making it better…
    Look at the love in those eyes…Soft and strong.

    xo
