Lemon, ginger, stevia, burdock root tincture.
Garlic is a natural antibiotic. The perfect kidney and bladder herb. When cleansing I eat 3-6 cloves, raw each day.
From my brother Steve: On “variety” I thought you might like this from The Urantia Book: (646.4) 56:10.3 Philosophy you somewhat grasp, and divinity you comprehend in worship, social service, and personal spiritual experience, but the pursuit of beauty — cosmology — you all too often limit to the study of man’s crude artistic endeavors. Beauty, art, is largely a matter of the unification of contrasts. Variety is essential to the concept of beauty. The supreme beauty, the height of finite art, is the drama of the unification of the vastness of the cosmic extremes of Creator and creature. Man finding God and God finding man — the creature becoming perfect as is the Creator — that is the supernal achievement of the supremely beautiful, the attainment of the apex of cosmic art.
Everyone has a little gypsy in them somewhere. And trust me, when she wants to come out and play, she needs the perfect fringe! (Is the red blurry because she is dancing?)
Station 5: Always have fabric dyed, steamed, rinsed and ready to sew.
Now to decide what to do with this silk charmeuse and devore pole wrapped and shibori dyed in shades of copper, rust and olive. I may tear it into strips, serge and sew them back together alternating fabrics. Or I may make one armed ponchos, perfect for wearable art.
During the evening I processed the silk I had dyed earlier. Wrapped in newsprint, heat set the dye as the silk steamed in the old canner on the wood stove. I love hanging the freshly rinsed silks in the barn, the contrast between the rawness of the wood, its roughness and the softness of the silk, sensuously moving as the wind blows through the cracks in the barn.
Excerpt from my memoir, The Garden Girls Letters and Journal
First Monday morning in almost six years without a publishing deadline. Now what?
Modess … . because
I had a dream about the me and the new Mötley County Tribune.
He said I could do anything.
“The truth is, if you seek your vitamin D from the sun, you’ll soak up a whole lot more than you bargained for, including accelerated aging and an increased risk of developing skin cancer.”
