everything about this book is groovy and far out. like pioneering tribes of people in bus caravans learning midwifery. <3
i slow down with this girl, soaking in life.
Learning to recognize happiness/
a world of medicine/
a Land of Love full on sweetness/ the sweet fruit of life
It’s a good and sweet work/ Gathering Summers Bounty/ surrounded by mountains and a warm breeze
we lag behind.
we get lost.
we wander alleys,
and sweet smelling sidewalks,
we harvest vegetables for dinner.
we plan our homesteads.
diana the dissector
and dolly the discoverer.
portland is a wild and inspiring community…
so much beauty and cooperation–
planning to plant similar seeds in roseville
Portland is not perfect but it’s pretty darn close. there’s Hops and mint in the alleys fruit everywhere////
It’s Breezy and warm/// we get lost again wandering/// the city has a country feel // plants growing everywhere //old wooden houses// Sun Shines on the sidewalk// the Shadows cooling down
Maintained wildness even with the growth of civilization.
A respect for nature
A community of recycles
hella cute: biking off to brunch. polly compost and the star-dust professor.
first day back/epilogue.
delighted by the bikes. and the town market and peach festival. and the dinosaurs adorning the tomatoes. and our little urban garden. hope, folks, and proud of this little part of town that wants true community. we can lead the way. we can adopt sustainable models. we can forge new ground and find balance.
