Improvement Plan
I expect that by the time I finish this degree, I'll have exercised my discipline muscles to the point that just working full time and taking care of household things will feel like I have a lot of free time.  Instead of filling up that time with TV or soci...

Gotta Write
I think too much.  When I set out to do something creative like writing, I think about it way too much before I really start, and before I know it I've tried so hard to be professional about it that I've forgotten to just write.  This time I've decided I'm ...

Why I Write, and What I Work Towards
The world can be a scary place.  Climate disruption, dwindling soil, water, oil, and food supplies contribute to a feeling of scarcity; and withering liberties and increasing government encroachment make one feel as if they have no room to think or do for t...

Plants Have Intelligence: Find Out What They're Thinking and Have a Convesration
Since permaculture focuses so much attention to plants and plant systems, it makes sense to try to have a conversation with plants about what they need.  If you observe plants, you can begin to deduce their language and understand what it is they're strivin...

The Benefits of Buying "Unkempt" Land
When we bought the house and the 1.5 acres it sits on last year, we got a pretty good deal on it.  We are the "poor" house in the neighborhood, with some (albeit somewhat larger) homes going for nearly twice as much as we bought ours.  And fortunately for u...
