Living the present, preparing for the future on the path least traveled

Dear Diary, from the path least traveled…

Hello Diary,

Back sooner than I had thought I would but had a good week, got lots done, made some plans and worked on my conservation project, have had a shower and thought I would leave a few thoughts…Bree and I are continuing on down the path, living and enjoying the moment, looking forward to the next… have meals prepared for Sat. and Sun. (tonight, Fri., is traditional TV dinner night, no cooking… 🙂 )…

So I don’t have to cook this weekend, just the micro and have a “Me” weekend, chasing rainbows with Bree.. can work on projects and spring preparations.. need to start on seed shelling, have a plant called the “Silver Dollar” that looks like a silver dollar at full bloom..

Also have some “rat-tail radish” that looks like a green bean with a tail but tastes like a radish, easy to grow in warm and hot temp, unlike the normal radish…

Not to mention the fact that there are a lot of them on one small bush, unlike the normal radish….. also working on the water color a bit, have the basic trees in so the background is now ready to detail the background and then start on the hummer and flowers….

That, along with other projects, are part of my “meditation” for relaxing and reduce any stress… also over the past year, and continuing, I have been working on conservation… seeing how there are those that don’t seem to wish to, primarily Republicans, I am doing my part for the environment and the planet…. have devised ways to reduced dependence on fossil fuels, reduced pollution and have saved me some money and still able to live a meaningful, enjoyable life and not sacrifice or go without… and, some of that money that I have saved goes to needy organizations like Planned Parenthood, local food bank, public radio/tv, etc (the Republicans are paying for it, like it or not as it is coming out of their economy 🙂 )… it seems the Republicans can not embrace change, but change is happening, it is the way of all things…. ask the Seekers…

Well, I had better scoot, get a bit to eat and settle in for the evening, a bit of TV and Sherlock Holmes (reading)… while on the subject of change, in leaving will share some quotes;

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity and conservation, all of which may appear to give one a peace of mind but in reality, nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit.” Christopher McCandless

“Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.” William Pollard

“Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system. “ Martin Luther King, Jr.

That being said I will bid you Adieu, Dairy, and return again one day to share thoughts, memories and dreams as we venture down the path least traveled, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Life…
