“farming is a profession of hope” – brian brett

Standard

today we met the farmers

they got down low

and

 told us everything

they showed us how to plant our own food

so that we could eat it later

they answered all of our questions

and told us

how the food would taste better

because we know the farmers now.

“know you food, know your farmers, and know your kitchen.”

-joel salatin

the math of trees.

Standard

when looking at the trees on the kinder playground

it’s easy to see how tall the little people are 

the green does not dare begin until it is

above and safely out of the reach of their tiny hands

even if they are standing on tippy toes

 pulling, climbing, bending, picking, snapping

the trees do the math and live to tell the tale.

“trees and plants always look like the people they live with, somehow.”

-zora neale hurston

the kinder nap diaries – so many styles, so little sleep.

Standard

the downward-facing up on the wall and on your head style

(includes the mysterious vanishing sheets technique)

the get inside of your sheets and try to camouflage yourself in them

while you creep across the floor and think no one will notice style

the fall asleep by accident in spite of yourself

and all of your best efforts to not to style,

while wrapped up in a sweaty and twisted cocoon

made of your own body and bedding.
