Aged Stone

There’s so much knowledge we have access to, with so many things to explore with our minds.  We know about such things as the winter solstice and the cycles of the planet and now know why stone age humans picked the location to build Stonehenge.  Apparently it’s located slap bang at the end of a natural phenomenon of deep ridges carved out of the bedrock, caused by glaciers, pointing straight towards the winter solstice sunset.  It must have got heads scratching and wonder.

We’re no longer from the stone age, we have expanded our species and our knowledge.  We need to stop taking from the planet without return.  We need compassion, peace and the combination of technology and planet~sense if humanity has a chance in the future.  Meat has to come off of the menu for so many reasons.  I might stand in the centre of Gors Fawr aged stone at some time during this 2017 winter’s solstice and make a few compassionate wishes for humanity.

I can believe it

pig humanSome would say you wouldn’t keep a child in those ~*#! conditions, so why keep an animal of equal intelligence in that?

  1. Firstly,  with the right conditioning since birth, people presume  ~*#! for some sentient beings as acceptable and believe it.
  2. Secondly, I don’t need to believe it, but see people paying for body parts that have been kept in ~*#! conditions, because “Where there was ~*#! there was brass”.
  3.  Lastly, I can believe it, as some would keep children in ~*#! conditions, because hidden away until found, some people have e.g. Genie a 13 year old girl found in 1970.

 

Cauliflower’s Calendar

Totally enjoyed putting all these annual things down and putting a humorous label on it.

p.s. Stop the spelling mistake on the image.

M5 Turkeys

One saved sentientA trailer containing hundreds of turkeys overturned today on the M5 motorway, UK.  Vegan activists tried to save the survivors and were stopped.  One woman lay over one of the turkeys to stop anyone from harming it.  This one sentient being from the hundreds involved in this horrific accident was saved.  The rest of the turkey survivors were pulled about by their legs and wings whether injured or not.  These were sentient beings, sentient beings who had already suffered in such an horrific way, being trapped in plastic crates that were flung violently to the ground.  Therefore the behaviour of those picking them up without compassion, to be taken away to their fate, was in my opinion totally disgusting!

Gleaner for animals

I get me now,

I’m a gleaner of kind thoughts,

This world of humans gather most of the kind thoughts unto themselves,

I gather and glean some of the left overs for animals,

As they really seem to be the poorest of the poor

And need all the kindness they can get.

Hugal bank

Over forty years ago, along the north side of our garden, hubby’s family dumped tree trunks and covering them with rough stone filled sod.  It now stands around four feet high, with well established trees, shrubs and native plants in it.  Some might call it a simple Hugal bank or perhaps Hugelkultur pronounced “Hoo-gul-culture” meaning culture or hill mound.  Whatever it’s gonna be called, it’s a valuable barrier from the cold air flowing down from the field above in the north, from water during heavy rainfall leading to soil erosion.  The phrase permaculture didn’t arrive until the late 70’s, but this permanent looking ecologically sound hugal bank, is a sure sign of what permaculture stands for, with its carbon sequestration.  I’m sure there’s future archaeology to be found in there too, from my hubby’s childhood, his siblings and our children who played on it also.  So far I’ve found plenty of plastic toys, parts of clothes pegs, once some WW2 shells and an actual spent out land mine!      Hugal bank

Notes:

  • It would be a bad idea if you live in the northern hemisphere, to build a hugal bank on the south side of a plot of land, as it would trap the cold air during the winter months.
  • Sod means about a spade full of soil.

Something bad?

Adapted quote from Plautus, edited and mixed a little to pose a serious question:

Is doing something good for a “bad” person, as destructive as wounding (perhaps fatally) a “good” person?

Posted this yesterday and if you haven’t already guessed the answer is:  “Yes, of course it’s as destructive!”

Discarding the noun!

Bexy (noun) is typing (verb) a long winded blog post to explain herself (something sometimes we all might find helpful).  I prefer a quiet life VERBING (doing) vegan, than to be all up in someone’s face NOUNING (naming) myself [VEGAN].  I really hate having to label myself and saying “I am vegan”  can put a dampener on any {{{jiggle~giggles}}}.  It’s like come running in announcing that I’ve deliberately run over some old dear who was walking (verb) over the zebra~crossing (noun) just outside, saying nonchalantly that I’ve left the ol’ baggins and her shopping trolly squished all “jammy bloodins” over the F***ing road!  Anyways, responses to the word “Vegan” sometimes make some react so aggressively, with all the pre~programmed and defensive rudeness of a lout.  Sometimes all I want is a kind, peaceful life and a F***ing tasty ethical bite to eat! < rant 😛

I want to be vegan (verb), looking (verb) for vegan clothes and generally being a happy bunny not exploiting others.  I invite you not to pigeon hole me, as there we have it beloveds “I  will vegan a lot in private and plenty of times in public, where maybe sometimes I might be caught on CCTV doing it vigorously!” and that’s just the way it is!

Note:  There’s a much more gentler version of this on my new blog Verb: Vegan without the swearing or rants.  😛

HabitYouAll

We all have habits.  I have a few great ones, but I wonder what ones aren’t doing any good and how I can dump that limited time wasteful shit.  I wonder what new ones I could start.  Apparently habits are really powerful, like magical spells that lead us to do the same shit at the ring of a silent bell.  I remember Pavlov and his dogs, but seriously, maybe there’s something in this habit forming thing.  If I could just harness that power.

bangleNotes to self:

  • Get out that pretty bangle with the little bells on and create a new improved habit when hearing them jingle.
  • Get new more powerful silent magical bells to create great new improved habits that create a kinder work.
  • Start using said bells often.

Maybe some of the habits can include clothes.  I might only keep those I can wear comfortably anywhere and stick to wearing them (habitual don’t you think).

Super Moon

Get your camera ready beloveds, for Sunday night there’s a huge supermoon!  The moon will look larger, probably scare the beegeebus out of some (I’ve been there in the past when living in Orkney), but it is a natural phenomenon (don’t stop the car and do a Chickenlicken “The sky is falling”  like I did that time when I saw my first ever huge supermoon on the horizon).  It occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth on it’s cycle by around 30,000 miles.  I wonder how it will effect me this year?  Anyways, this supermoon is when the moon is in Perigee phase close to us.  When the moon is furthest away from the Earth it is in it’s Apogee phase.  Enjoy and take perhaps some photos from where you live.
