Why am I here?. That is what the header ‘ABOUT’ is asking me to explain. Well, I want to join the chorus of players out there who are calling out and saying “Relax. Life can be simple” There is so much we actually do not need. So much in our lives now that we cannot do without, that were luxuries 20 years ago, 15 years ago, 10 years ago. So much food that is cluttering up our arteries and making us ill. So many additives that are not even FOOD! So much food that is not even FOOD! So much noise chattering in our brains. So many images confusing our cognitive processes. Medications that are panaceas for the doctor!!. So many science experiments infiltrating our fields and refrigerators.
It is insidious. It is very very scary every time we raise our heads and actually focus on it. But enough of the calling out. Enough of the ducking heads. Lets do it. So that is why I have begun this series of work. To show us that we can do it. We can live simply. That small is OK. That gentle is good. That kind is the most underrated quality in a person. That clean food you grow yourself and cook for yourself is amazing. That good sparkling healthy tastes on our plates shared with the family around the table every single night should be normal .
And all this woven in with developing a sustainable farm to feed ourselves with out here in the Midwest of America, some stories of growing up on a beach in New Zealand and the food we ate as kids. Because life is just like that!
