I cannot believe
that I have had
so much
Formal Education
and so Little of it
has been
about the Earth.
So Little of it
has been about
how to Grow
the Food that Sustains Me.
as currently constructed,
focuses on the Human experience
as if we were Separate
from these things.
As I look at the Food
my Family and I
are growing,
I am struck
by How Little
I have known
about the Elementals
of Life Itself.
One is
never too Old to Learn.
Every Day
on this Little Farm,
I begin yet again
that 1st Day of School.
I am open
and I am ready.
about these things
is about
coming Home to Myself.
