Had a really crazy vivid dream last night. The ocean was smashing me into pieces on the rocks and all around me everyone I ever knew was getting torn apart, too. People were scrambling all over each other, trying to make it up the slippery rocks, trying to get away from the waves and no one was really getting anywhere. When Lucas woke me up, I went back to some writings I was working on a few weeks ago and read through it.
from the diary last month
When the emotions start...ed welling up inside of me, I let them hit me like waves and as each wave of emotion passed I recovered; found myself upright with both feet firmly dug into the shifting sand, breathing and bracing myself for the next crash of brutal comprehension.
They stand in the same tide I do. Resisting the pulling depths of past mistakes, confronting stinging slaps of raw emotion from every angle, desperately trying to keep a balance between ebb and flow and rolling grains of pulverized everything.
Will that we all find relief in solid footing when the clouds break and the sun warms the shore.
Pray that we all find many and more of those days to build up our strength for the storms.
That we find loving hearts to welcome us, steadfast souls to shelter us, and enjoy calm waters.
I can remember the pull of the tide and get caught up in recollecting past weather, but I’ll be here in my homey little cove, surrounded by energies that heal, with the knowledge that all the sharks in the ocean that smell a hint of weakness and try to exploit it, can’t bite through my self –respect.

This Gardening Tip Can Lead To 30% Faster Home-Grown Food With 80% Less Water http://b4in.org/j6lE

What if you could grow more food with less water in something that takes up only 8 square feet of your livable outdoor space? You also won’t need soil, and you’ll do no weeding.

 Further, you’ll enjoy organic, pesticide and herbicide free food that you grow yourself. Sound too good to be true? A company making something called the ‘Pyramid Garden’ has you covered.

The pictures on their site are hard to believe, but these growing systems might be the answer to poisoned soil, limited growing space, and shrinking water supplies.

The plants grow by spraying nutrient dense water on the roots that hang inside the pyramid. As excess water drips back into a tray, it is filtered and recycled. Since these novel systems reduce the need for water by up to 80%, they could  answer food sovereignty in places that are already experiencing droughts.

These are places like California, which is suffering from water shortages across 60% of the state. Other states include Salt lake City, Utah, Nashville, Tennessee, and Greenville, South Carolina - all states currently suffering from low water tables.

Desertification of many countries is also causing droughts, making viable crop acreage more and more scarce. Imaginative systems like the Pyramid Garden may be able to make a difference.
Since the Pyramid Garden doesn’t use soil, that means that the millions of acres of polluted land that has been drenched with glyphosate, neonicotinoids, and other pesticides could be remedied while people still had access to organic food. Even garden soil can become toxic and needs to be ‘fixed’ before anything should be planted in it.

The best part is that these systems are not pricey, and food can be planted intermittently so that you don’t have to harvest it all at once.  

This could also allow for rotation of crops in areas where there is little land. This is good since some foods could be grown with the Pyramid Garden while plots of land were grown over with cover crops, putting nutrients back into the soil.

American agriculture could be much improved with soil remediation. These systems could give our soil a much needed rest.

I'm so frustrated.  I don't know what I need and I don't know how to recognize the things I need to fix in order to be happy with myself and overcome this. always being yanked backwards into emotional turmoil from past situations.  It never gets easier, it gets harder as time goes by, cause hindsight is twenty-twenty and every time I look back I see things just a bit clearer and it wrecks me all over again.  I bet you're thinking, she needs to concentrate on the present, on what's ahead of her, but you don't fucking know what it is that's still lurking behind me waiting for any little space to jump out and throw me a bitchslap of shitty memories that blind me to everything else.

I know what you mean. I have been recovering from something of a train wreck in my private life recently myself. You go along and you think that you are getting better, putting it behind you and that things'll be okay... And then something happens (And you might not even know what it is) and you are right back rehashing in your head what went on and how it could have went "if only...".

People say to concentrate on the now or the future and they are right. But it's hard to do that. It's hard to just say "Don't think about that". It's easy to say it but hard to do.

I want to say it'll get better. And I know it will - time really does heal all wounds. But when you have that wound and it hasn't healed it really doesn't feel that way. It feels like you'll never get past this. 

But we will. Remember that - we will get past it and there are good days ahead. I don't know when and I don't know how one get's to that point... but it'll happen. So take time to wallow in sadness but also take time to know that this too is transient.
