Post Sandy

So Sandy has passed. We were very lucky. Sandy was kind to Brookwood Shire. But for the fact that the lawn is covered with leaves again, we had no damage. We did not lose power. And our very clever girls continue to produce eggs. So life goes on.
Halloween is tomorrow night and it looks like the kids will be able to Trick or Treat. We were definitely spared.
My thoughts are with those who had a very different experience with the storm.

But still there is no talk of Climate Change on the mainstream media! Unbelievable! Climate Change just “cannot be named,” like Voldemort in the Harry Potter books. What is wrong with us?! The rest of the world seems to know what is happening.

What will it take? What does nature have to do to get our attention?

Will we continue to hide from the truth?
The oil companies own our media, and probably our government. It is shameful.

Which is why I was delighted today when my book arrived. On the recommendations of friends, I ordered the book, The Self Sufficient Gardener by John Seymour. I am determined to wean myself off of this fossil fuel driven consumer culture we live in. We can do better.

What better way to spend the winter than planning for next year’s garden?

About patti

I am a retired kindergarten teacher, tending a new kind of garden now, raising chickens and exploring permaculture. I live with my husband, Bill, my beloved dog, Fergus and my cat, Mighty Merlin. We have a small cottage and a tiny bit of land called Brookwood Shire. It is our sanctuary.

    Listening to our own intuition tells us all we need to know about the changes in our weather system!
