Small-Plot Gardening and Freedom

I love my tiny garden. Most people would find it laughably small, but by the end of June I had enjoyed lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, a host of herbs from lemon grass to basil, rosemary, mint and chives, and enough zucchini that I was able to share with friends. I recently watched a show on Cuba. It appears things are slowly changing for the better, but during the strict days of Communism subsistence farming was prohibited. Wow – why wouldn’t a government want its people to try and feed themselves? I’ll leave that perplexing question to those who understand politics. I tend to look at things through a more logical lens, and as we all know, politics no matter what the system and logic seldom belong in the same discussion. So, for now I’ll continue to appreciate the bounty of my small garden and the freedom to grow it.

Best Things in Life are Free

A free outdoor concert on a beautiful evening at a great venue featuring Incendio, a Latin guitar world fusion group, had the crowd dancing. The combination made for a night to remember, and made me itch to get on the road and explore.

Independence Day

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July. The highlight this year for me was seeing a living history event at Fort Atkinson State Park which included a reading of the Declaration of Independence. It was a great reminder of why we celebrate the holiday.

2011 Flooding

For the last month I’ve watched the waters of the Missouri rise and the destruction has been devastating for so many. I usually love summer, but it’s difficult to feel joy in the presence of such heartbreak. Hope will rise as river levels fall, and our thoughts and prayers will remain with those affected.
