photo journal through a season. Nook & Cranny 2015.

although my season at the farm began in February seeding Alliums in the greenhouse,

i began taking photos

from approximately the same spot upon arriving to work, beginning in May and ending in December.

(skipping a number of the days due to rushing or being late, or just forgetting…)

(pardon the (possibly obnoxious) long run of (only) photos. i wish i could show it in a 3-block format, like on Instagram, but i don’t know how to change format for one post.)

enjoy.

thank you, 2015.

(now it’s time to delete these from my phone so as to make more room for new photos of Sophie & Izzy.)

what if earth was the gate, the decider, the yes/no guide for what we do & don’t do?

Image

sometimes

the truth is upsetting

but perhaps

the truth shall set us free.

what if

the yes – no guide to life

the flow chart of what we are going to do

and how we are going to do it

was a bit more simple

elemental

Image

that the very first guidepost each question had to go through was asked & answered through the earth’s gate

what i mean to say is this

for example

take a styrofoam cups

yes or no

does it break down?

no

okay then we’re not going to make them.

but we need to have insulated carriers for transporting organs here and there – what to use?

how about mushroom foam?  or hemp foam?

Image

okay super.

done.

yeah, but (someone in the back of the audience peeps up) what about all the styrofoam factory workers?

how are they going to pay their rent, huh?

let there be seamless change

let the company transition to mushrooms (or whatever truly-compostable-breakdownable material) while keeping them on the payroll

just as Malden Mills did when a fire burned down their factory and they paid their workers while they rebuilt the factory…

though that doesn’t have a so-called happy ending – what if the rest of us pitched in to support everybody…?

community-stylie.  kickstarter, indigogo, etc.

the law that puts shareholders before the earth has to change.

i don’t know which law it is

memory (not always reliable) tells me that it was put into place by Mr. Dick
Cheney that if a public traded company can increase its profits to the shareholders, it by law has to be sold to a company that wants/has the ability to buy it out.

um

no

no more of that

the earth comes before shareholders

Image

what the HELL is a shareholder

we are ALL shareholders

shareholding this planet together

with every wise & foolish decision & action we take.

Image

the earth has to be the Law, the Say, the Gate that our both highly impactful & piddly human activities have to go through.

yes/no

simple.

does it harm?

yes?  well, then NO.

find another way.

does it harm?

no?  great.  go for it.

and none of this bullsh*t like with hydrofracking with all the people and agencies saying it doesn’t do any harm.

tell you what.

let’s get some of that flammable Pennsylvania water flowing in the shareholders and hydrofracking creator’s homes and see if they’ll willingly drink it.

Image

i could not go to sleep

without first posting something

something after seeing this

what if

the plastic could somehow be collected

from the oceans

somehow

gathering it back up

our ingenious brains can find a way to gather it up

what if

all that plastic could be made

into playgrounds

for all the children

who are worker/slaves in so-called third world countries

making our clothing for “cheap”

Image

they could be set free

(and perhaps, training us here in the states, to also be expert tailors & seamstresses)

to play

on playgrounds made from recycled plastic

allowing the seabirds, the sea life

their birthright

to swim, to live, to fly

and perhaps

with earth as the guide, the gate, the ultimate yes/no decider

we can find our way home.
