"Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds." ~ Rumi

|We begin buy going out into the beautiful gardens, getting our feet into the dirt, and start picking away all the ripe tomatillos. We picked a couple 5 gallon buckets, all ready to make salsa verde!|
|Then, after we wash and peel them, we cut them and cook them down in low heat, making sure they don't burn at the bottom!||.|
|Those two big pots cook down to one,(after a couple of hours). Now we begin to stir the salsa for another couple of hours until its cooks down a lot more! We want it to be thick. Patience..... stir and stir..|
|Once the salsa verde is done, we simply boiled our mason jars and the lids too, and the pouring begins. We carefully seal each one, and there we have it! David, the canning expert is in the back getting ready to feed the dogs.|

Working for food,
This is food for the body, because a lot of our physical energy goes into producing, planting and harvesting, It is food for the mind, makes me imagine beyond anything else that we could ever think is possible, these are the fruits of the earth, these give us life, we give them life, we are all related. This is food for the soul. It reminds me of who we are as human beings, and in a way it awakens the ancestral memory in our DNA of what we can do while living on this earth, and what we have done many generations before us. Living of the land, it is abundant and so rewarding, to develop a relationship with plants and the food that goes into your body. This is our pick of the day from the beautiful gardens at Foreman Farm, Just to name a few, Rainbow chard, dahlias, green and purple basil, yellow squash, watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, cilantro, yellow and purple beans, Fuji apples.... Thank you mother earth.

Today I feel such a deep sense of gratitude towards all life, to all the beauty and abundance that the earth provides. Last night it was snowing and I observed the perfection of each snow flake. How can it all be so perfect and beautiful in its own way, Crystals of beauty falling from the sky, what is there to be afraid of? We choose what we want to focus our energy to, and right now there are many beautiful creations to be thankful for. Lets pay attention to the things that matter, to all that is real, pure and true. I saw the sunsetting behind the dessert stone creations in New Mexico and the power of that vision was the wisest message at the moment. Nature creates the most outstanding colors, the most vivid and most true to our eyes, its is a reminder that with each sun setting there is a sunrise to come, the darkest moment of the night is right before the sunrises once again, we must experience the darkness before we live in the light. We must not forget the great grandmother moon, shining its great luminous silver light upon us in the darkest of nights, she reminds us that even in the dark there is always light. There is ALWAYS light. We must learn to transform fear with our own truth, our own light and this light comes from within, from the heart, from the ancient wisdom of the soul. Nothing can hurt us, everything is transformed, the power of renewal is strong, and it is real and is happening now, it is a true gift, we are beings of constant transformation, change, and renewal. We must learn to trust our own hearts, and the infinite journey of the soul, the ancient journey of the spirit. All my relations.
