Your quotes from John Cage are eerily harmonious with my meditations from yesterday afternoon. Thank you.

I’ve just begun wild food foragingthis year. Another thing you may find plentiful at this time of year are red clover buds.
I am looking forward, too, to chickweed.

I agree. The best things in life are found on street corners, in dumpsters, r under bushes in the forest.
Thank you. You’re posts bring back my peace of mind…

It’s out there waiting for us to find it, whether it be food or found objects. I now think myself fortunate in that I can take the time to ‘see’. Walking with my dog, shopping for groceries, sitting in the Doctor’s surgery…..all opportunities.
Thankyou for writing so clearly and evocatively.

A wonderful book I am reading right now may be of interest to you.
Conscious Eating by Gabriel Cousins.
p.s. strong ginger tea is great for increasing digestive fire and i am sure would have relieved your intestinal pains. better luck next time.

it seems your work is becoming of a more spiritual nature. perhaps foraging and making still life of a few objects is pulling you more into your core? not that you don’t seem to exist deeply otherwise. you are like h.d.t. in your own version of walden…
i love you…

I continue to be moved by your journey Keri, and by your openness to simplicity and comfort and beauty. I loved your recent post on the landscape of comfort! I loved it as much as the one you had done before on what makes a home (, which I shared on my own blog (hope thats ok) and likely will this one now too
I hope the new home is truly wonderful, made all the bettter by this journey up to it’s gate–through the grassy “office” smelling the flowers along the way : )

Not long ago on a local show here in the Seattle area there was a segment on a man who takes people out and shows them all the wild things they can eat in nature where they live. The plants really are everywhere! The group collects a bunch of food and then take it back to his kitchen and prepare/eat it. I was amazed and want to take the guys course sometime. I’ve got to find out what his name is.
Oh — and I really like your ad-free blog idea..we’ve each got to change the corporatocracy in any way we can. I heard something last night that gave me HOPE. I heard most higher-ups of big corporations are just waiting for consumers to complain so that they can meet their demands. The members of the board already want to change the way their companies do business — they just want to keep stock holders happy and they don’t want to speak up to their bosses for fear of being fired. So we shouldn’t think we can’t change things. :)
