Something inside of me is stirring. I feel a restlessness, a slightly uneasy excitement. Life right now is taking me through some big changes...some that I did not seek, and that have left me feeling tired and lonely, and others that I know are long overdue, and which make me want to learn and try new things.
For the last 10 years, I've been on a journey into the world of agriculture, thanks to my almost 20 year old son who is well on his way to his dream of becoming an organic, pasture-based farmer. I have learned so very much (more than I ever wanted to know) about food. Until this year most of what I learned (as I read and researched and read and listened and observed, first-hand) made me sick to my stomach, and sick in my heart. I felt so small and powerless next to the monster that is corporate agriculture here in the United States. The corruption surrounding this world of "food" production (most of it isn't really food, which is why I use quotation marks around the word) is sickening, and the depth and breadth of it left me feeling hopeless and defeated.
Recently, I watched a documentary titled "Ingredients." In it, a new vision was born in my mind, and in my heart. A vision of what I could do, even amidst the massive and sickening corruption and toxic poisoning. A vision of hope, stirring finally, again.
I ordered two cookbooks (I'm selling off most of my old ones)...and the vision is growing. Ahhhh, a new project to dream about, a new challenge to take on.
I think I'm ready, Lord. Stay tuned...
Leave a note...I love to hear from you!
