Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

Days like none before

 Well, things have been about as spikey as they can get. I'm looking for the little bloom within each moment and situation.
In the mundane world I finally got some black walnuts in to "The Walnut Farm" with the caveat that they no longer buy walnuts... in fact, nobody buys walnuts. To cut costs candy makers and etc now leave the walnuts out. How they then call it walnut anything is beyond me but I know the walnuts are good for you so it is a shame to lose the food source. Anyway, my trade for two and one half of the big barrels in the foreground was that little bag of walnut "meats" propped on the corner of the bin.
 Yesterday a big front hauled in from the north and we had an exciting unpredicted episode of unremitting thunder and lightning and fierce rain. This is the front end of that front approaching before dusk where we went for a wee stroll east of town.
 We are shadows and stone is stone. There are some things we neither understand nor can do much about. Some of these things invite pain, even loss. We face them together, in the moment and with humor and what stoicism as we can muster. Life is far too short and when life is challenged there is disbelief, shock, some numbness and most of all Love and Appreciation.
 I love Michael and have loved him since the moment I first saw him. Unfortunately there is no bargaining and there is no mortal listening God. There is only the vast, divine of Wholeness that we and all nature are heir too. And, just perhaps, the mystical lives somewhere where our souls are joined. We'll all just wait and see to know. All of us.
