this is a very short blog post by one of my teachers of how to prevent neck pain while working at a computer
Thank you Cindy Black at Big Tree School of Natural Healing for writing this!
And to my brilliant sister for the suggestion to share it!
Here are gratuitous pictures of Sophie & Izzy.
Thank you Jenny for sharing them along
For better &/or for worse
Travels through each day with the often visiting phrase:
A dreamy mind.
it perpetuates fears & worry.
it dreams ideas into the world.
And hopefully it’s not just a trap to avoid being present with what is.
This region has had what I would call “a real winter”
I’ve written before that I love winter.
This region is currently rich with snow.
Which is great, it acts as an insulator for plants, will replenish water tables, & is beautiful too.
Perhaps there is plenty to share.
This is a letter-drawing for my young friend who turns 3 in May.
He is bonkers for all things truck, tractor, motorcycle, & especially heavy machinery.
(He’s also a willing snow shoveler)
And the Southwest & California might be in need of some water.
If anyone is inspired to share this with engineers or people involved in the train/railway system, feel free.
(I already emailed it to the Mayor of Boston)
I’m not an economist, or anything like that, but if many people tended to railways, building & maintaining it, as well as the solar desalinization plants, not to mention all the humans who could person the backhoes & dump trucks, and many farmers & farm workers & so forth, that could add up to a lot of work for the benefit of many.
What if we shared the wealth?
another Sunday seeding at Nook & Cranny Farm
Bob is super zippy & filled most of the 4-packs with the seed-starting mix
While I did most of the seeding
More shallots & lettuce, spinach, cabbage, mizuna, mustard, arugula, & 2 types of kale
I might be forgetting something
The greenhouse soon filled up with trays
Every available flat surface was covered
I joked it was time to build another greenhouse
Even the shelf behind the packing area was utilized
And after a final watering in for the week, a few sprouts emerged
It was in the low 20s today
Just on the cusp of Maple Syrup season.
These 4 foot icicles are at another place I work, taken on a sunnier day
And a distant view of the partially frozen lake
A lot of people are really ready for Spring
Lots of grumping.
But this time of year feels special to me
It’s intense, but can change rapidly some years, so it feels extra super special
I always hope the shift is slow
I wish for a good, long Maple Syrup run
The snowmen have lived long lives this winter
