What we want, and what we are meant to be.

Connectivity

Remember the days people actually spoke to one another, told each other the little things that happened through the day that moved them somehow? It seemingly has come to the point that we have lost the ability to self reflect and merely reacting to a barrage of captioned photos that quote old sayings some of us carry in our minds anyway. The greatest innovations of mankind were given to us by minds that both gazed out into creation with awe and wonder, but also looked as deeply into themselves to discover how what lies without and within are interconnected. I have chosen to in place of being witness to snippets of regurgitated phrases to look back over that which I as well been guilty of doing, reflect upon what if any real change they brought to myself. I think only then will I be able to put forth the substance which is truly myself. I hold preference to being known and remembered for this rather than an image or even worse, merely a reflection upon the choppy sea of memory. I hope this will allow me to provide a richer and deeper understanding of how I see my relation with creation.

Early season blessings.

It is truly a glorious day here Swampfox country. Temperature is in the mid 70s, and breezy. The shorts have been broken out and letting the sun do it’s thing so I can generate some vitamin D! Forecast calls for much the same over the next few days so I see ground work coming on. I’m making a note to myself not to jump out into the sun too much in the beginning. Sun burn and heat stroke are not conditions to take lightly, as I have had both before. So everyone plan your outdoor activities accordingly, but remember to get out there and enjoy nature!

Gorgeous day & firewood info

   The first day of the time change finds it full of sunshine, light breezes and the temperature to be in the mid to upper 60’s. The dogwoods have been blooming for almost two weeks and the Bradford pears are now joining along.
   I’ve spent a few hours cutting limbs with a saw by hand. Ranging in thickness from 1.5″-5″ I am cutting them to a length roughly 14″ so they will fit into the chimera. To expedite things this week I dug a 6′ wide 2 shovel head deep pit in the back yard, banking the sides with the dirt I dug out. I use it to burn off the smaller branches to get down to the larger ones. I must say the design works well as later that day as I was burning things off the wind started gusting to 15mph. With shovel in hand and water hose nearby I gave vigilant watch and saw how while the wind would whip some of the ashes around, they would swirl within the embankment and fall back in.
   Thinking about all of this lead me to thinking about firewood. How its measured, the different types etc. The article here- http://www.consumerenergycenter.org9/home/heating_cooling/firewood.html gives some of the information you may want consider in those regards.
   Time to grab some lunch and then back to cutting. Hoping that the article is helpful, and that you all have a great day.
