  • I try to buy organic if I can, although I do take issue with those that think this is a new idea. When our grandparents were children virtually everything they ate was organic, it just wasn't called so. It was called 'food',
    I try to support local businesses if I can - bakers, butchers, markets,
    I try not to drink,
    I try not to smoke,
    I try to see your side as well as mine,
    I try to keep the peace,
    I do try.

    I fall sometimes though. I fall heavily for caffeine.
    I fall when trying to recycle, I promise that when everything can be recycled I will, in earnest.
    I fall, daily it seems for a myriad of people and things.

    I believe in our farming and the natural order of things.
    I believe in not harming another living thing if it is not causing harm to you. That living thing has as much right to be here as you, it has it's own struggles to contend with, I have no intention of adding to them.
    I also believe that we are land living creatures, and we have no right to be in the seas and oceans disrupting their order. If you are set upon by a shark or stung by a jellyfish, they have the right to do that, you are in their domain.
    We have no right to the belief that we 'own' everything, that it is all there for us to poke and prod around in.

    I believe, and I fall, and I try.
