well here i sit, glasses on, laptop in front of me and a mug of pukka 'clarity' tea~ginger, lemongrass and gotu kola~by my side.
its been my moontime and as usual been very unwell for several days; on monday i just gave up went to bed with a hotwater bottle around 2am and stayed there until the next morning, sometimes the cramps and sickness, added to my symptoms of m.e become just too much and i do give in. on monday swampy was fantastic as he always is, keeping my hot water bottle topped up, making me home made lemon and ginger root drinks and bringing me fruit which was all i could eat.
so i have been doing a bit of catch up in blog~land, if i usually visit you i will be by in the next couple of days.
reading your comments from my last post made me glad i am not the only one to feel this way and its good to know that others out there are thinking and planning to get through the next few difficult years~which i am sure we will all do.
like miss*r it scares me too and i just hope that when we come out of the other side humankind will be more thoughtful and open.
what also scares me are those out there~yes they are still out there~who do not care, those who know about these issues and who just don't care and/or cant be bothered~ about the worlds resources, who don't recycle, who waste, who don't care what products go down their drains and fill their homes with toxic substances...the list is endless.
i find it hard to believe that there are still people who do not recycle~i remember last year a bit on the news about a street who did not have waste collection each week and they were interviewing folk~the amount of things that they were throwing out that were recyclable was incredible.
call me difficult but anyone can recycle given the amount of bins in towns and villages these days, even if people just take one bag of recycling with them each time they know they are going near a recycling bin is something, but to see as in this news item the mounds of rubbish that was being thrown out was depressing.
we have waste collection here weekly but swampy and i have ours collected maybe every 2-weeks, we have two large compost bins, we use only Ecover products around the home, most refilled when needed, the same in the bathroom with shampoo etc and on a regular week we only use pippin once ~ i like to think this makes up for when we use him to go a longer distance for camping and even then, when i think about it we still use less that the 'suits' who roar up and down every day for their jobs. we have even looked into putting in a diesel engine so we could use vegetable oil but would need ear defenders when driving in him~if you have ever been in an h-van before you will know why!
maybe i am too hard on people when i feel they have no excuse, but to me there is no excuse not to do what you can for our land.
maybe my mind is too much in the past~to a time when the litter of mankind did not fill the air, the land and the sea's and the greed of mankind fill peoples minds.
part of my mind and my whole heart is filled with the land and ways of my ancestors, a time when the gods were honoured as was the land they walked upon, things were taken from the land with thanks and respect...
