Chickpea and Cauliflower Curry

IMG_0663

My Freshly Sown Patch At McRorie Community Garden

"Humanity knows nothing at all. There is no intrinsic value in anything, and every action is a futile, meaningless effort."

Freshly Sown Patch At McRorie Community Garden



Gardening at our community garden has opened the door to many things for me. I just planted carrot, okra, zipper cream and tomatillo seeds this week. I'm happy because it's been raining these past few days since and will probably rain more so they… Continue

Meteors, Winter Planting, Bikes, Hikes, Flights and more!

A twisty maze of passages, this random walk is, so hang in there while we casually start the day with a few things to think of. Thanks to Swami Worldtraveler for pointing out the photo above.

CHANGING MARY’S DIAPER









Mary was frail, so weak she could barely get to the potty near her bed without help. When I came into her room to see how she was doing, she was lying, prone in bed, her knees, slightly bent up; her face, a bit ashen from not eating well and sickness, but still with her glowing, smile, so familiar to me.

Kid with a New Bike! (updated)

style bike. It's agile and has a 10 gear cassette with 3 sprockets in

front, for a total of 30 speeds!

There's…
