Staying positive and calm on this Earth Day.

Spring has not sprung yet, but I can tell it is getting close.

Trying to be more patient — with everything.

It makes everything feel better.

Happy Earth Day!!

 

food revolution

Friday July 16, 2010

I am on a food revolution.

I’ve startred to go vegetarian and am flirting with going vegan (no animal products at all).

My last meal (that included meat) was on the 4th of July.

I have had dairy (which, for me, is harder to kick than meat because you know, ice cream, butter, cheese all are DAIRY!). But I am drinking rice milk on my cereal and trying out vegan cheeses and coconut milk frozen treats.

I began reading the book The Kind Diet and it really made sense to me. My convictions about the environment, animals, and health all are starting to align.

This is a personal journey and I know there will be bumps and hiccups along the way but I’ve decided that is going to be okay!  I am learning about new foods and flavors and definitely thinking outside the box.

So far, my body is thanking me!

wtf bp

Wednesday June 9, 2010

My heart aches for our oceans, fish, shrimp, birds, gulf coast marshes, fisherman and women, coastal towns and their livelihoods.

All of which are being suffocated by disgusting, gross, crude oil.

I hate that we are dependent on oil and so many other things AND I hate that politics, power, religion, and greed seem to rule the world.

What about love, laughter, family, and peace?

Well, WTF are we to do?

I broke down yesterday feeling helpless, frustrated, and angry.  Really really angry at the whole situation.

I know that we can do so much better, so much.

Shame on us.

AND shame on BP. I mean, WTF?
