Sometimes a wind blows…
In a darkness
And the mysteries
Of love
Come clear
And dance
In light
In you
In me
And show
That we
Are love
Sometimes a wind blows
And the mysteries of love
Come clear.

After a day at the Free Farm Stand or in the garden this is the way I feel.  These days we have  so many different guests and helpers showing up and I feel the love we all carry within us. I feel this love also in the flowers that just pop out and sing brightly with their colors or the birds or insects that dance around in the air.
 I love the diversity of our farm stand right now, especially our fabulous volunteer crew. I have been able to step back a bit and let others run the show. It is great to share the joy of service with others. In our cartel culture of violence, and money and profit margins seemingly to rule all things, it is so sweet to take a break from it and to create our own world based on compassion  and generosity. An example of this is that one of our volunteers Gloria has out of the blue started cooking and feeding all our helpers  lunch, sharing her talents at cooking traditional Mexican food, but all vegan.

of course greens and purslane
I highly recommend that if you want to learn what it takes to bring food to your table to come harvest produce at the farm with me some Friday. It gives me such an appreciation and gratefulness to farmers and to the God and Goddesses  of the earth.

Please join our great crew of volunteers by just coming to the Free Farm Stand or come by the All in Common Garden. We are also looking for baby food jars to bottle honey and plastic bags to give away soft fruit. Thanks
