It is another rotation around the sun for us and still no asteroids!
2012... may we all rest in peace!
another year is marked by the milestone of tradition... new years eve celebrations, new years day feast, a week of wishes of "happy new year", to friends and family and strangers alike. so happy new year, bon nouvelle annee and gelukkig niewe jaar. this is the year i turn 50 and the year i got married on 2 january in amsterdam and the year i get more serious about fewer passions. my cat rescue is full with 16 lovely creatures- my hairy children- and will no longer accept new clients. it is also the year i change my disease with intervention that will help- not hinder- my bodies healing processes. i will no longer accept the current paradigm and will push for this opportunity until realized. i am listening to new music- beirut and hawk and a hacksaw, and i have a new haircut- short and white-the face in the mirror looks more familiar than ever. i no longer eat grains which includes all the wheat products and i eat only organic and/or fermented and/or raw and unpasteurized. i rarely use my wheelchair and i walk more than ever. i am busy with bandwagons against fluoride, genetically modified organisms, vaccines, high fructose corn syrup and over-regulation, and busy climbing soapboxes for raw, unpasteurized dairy, integrative health practices, multi abx therapies for chronic illness, and alternative fuel sources. I am starting to make my own tempeh and grow my own edible mushrooms... hoping to be munching shitakes and oysters by next fall. also striving to learn all i can of medicinal shrooms like reishi and maitakes. so much to learn in one lifetime. and then there are languages. i have spent much time on french making slow progress and choose to learn my husbands native tongue- nederlandse. i love the dutch language but my memory sucks so i will make this a life goal and approach it more gently. and i feel the need to learn spanish as it is closer to home so will attempt to make some headway this year. my hands are rapidly changing and i must contend with some surgical intervention before it is too late. sounds like a busy year.
