3 July 2022 Chasing Our Tails

Hello to you. How are you? I’m doing ok. Frustrated with myself. Tried to fit into a pair of jeans I’ve had for so many years this morning and nope! Too bloated. There is a Dr. Guidry and others that say the culprit is probably leaky gut syndrome. I am trying to eat better but still taking in too much processed food that is heavy on salt. It’s hard when your living alone to want to cook for yourself and if you do, avoid having a lot of waste. I am working with God about this and my body. Our microme- gut bacteria gets trained up early on in our lives. I notice for myself, that my body likes to eat a lot of protein. Much of the protein I ate as a young person came from meat. I want to change that. I am seeking a protein that does for me what meat does without involving the suffering and death of food animals. I have explored stuff like Quinoa and coconut milk. God and I will figure this out!

Yesterday I was looking into water filter technology and there is a lot of innovation out there. The Achilles heal to much of it – what to do with what is filtered out of water. The byproduct of most filtration tech is dirty filters and stuff you have to figure out what to do with. Desalinization – brine. What O read is a lot of the byproduct gets put back where the water came from! This doesn’t make any sense. It’s like seeing no trash someplace and forgetting there is a landfill somewhere brimming over with trash! Out of sight out of mind. If I have water delivered to my house it’s still not solving the problem. How about working on putting less crap in our drinking water to begin with? Will there ever be a day we feel safe drinking from the tap? Kind of felt like I was chasing my tail yesterday about this issue and so many others. Fix one thing, answer one question and there is something else to consider. Thinking something, a decision, all the way through isn’t easy but necessary. Making hasty decisions oftentimes is a catalyst for more problems to arise. Some enjoy that – profiting from making problems and then making more money coming up with solutions. I call that profit from misery. If problems are preventable then we should work on that. Doing what is right isn’t easy always but it can be rewarding!

1 July 2022 Bring Your Own

Hello to you. How are you today? I have been thinking a lot about being a responsible guest in Gods house, this planet we call earth. Yesterday I took a walk and and saw the usual varieties of litter. Some intentionally disposed of in the wrong place and some cumulative from trash day trash that gets away from the trucks, stuff that gets out of peoples vehicles. There are many things we buy that we just don’t know what to do with once we are done with it or it’s inconvenient and complicated to do so. It’s beginning to feel like no matter where we put all of this it’s ending up in undesirable places like living bloodstreams:

So after another walk like this and really feeling tired of cleaning up after people or trying to encourage them to do it – not just consumers but companies that begin the pipeline of trash. I got to thinking about the upcoming holiday and all the gatherings and events happening this time of year. Metric tons of trash generated that has to go somewhere. Think about all those plates, to go containers, plastic utensils, plastic red solo cups, napkins, beverage containers and expended firework containers! What if event coordinators incentivized people bringing their own stuff to these things? Like a picnic basket concept? I am not entirely sure what the answer is but that idea popped in this morning….. just passing it along for taking, leaving or ignoring.

“Plastic forks, knives, and spoons are one of those things that we tend to think are inevitable when eating on the go or feeding a crowd. Even though alternatives do exist, these are not widely known or accessible, which is a pity, considering the impact that plastic cutlery has on the environment. It does not biodegrade, and a recent study found plastic cutlery to be among the 10 most common types of plastic trash found on California beaches.”

Let me take you on a trip
Around the world and back
And you won’t have to move, you just sit still
Now let your mind do the walking
And let my body do the talking
Let me show you the world in my eyes

I’ll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
And we won’t need a map, believe me
Now let my body do the moving
And let my hands do the soothing
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That’s all there is
Nothing more than you can feel now
That’s all there is

Let me put you on a ship
On a long, long trip
Your lips close to my lips
All the islands in the ocean
All the heaven’s in the motion
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That’s all there is
Nothing more than you can touch now
That’s all there is

Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
Let me show you the world in my eyes
