So having blogged much of what's been in my head over the last few months (thanks for reading and listening and SUPPORTING!!), I have decided that it makes a lot of sense to start a separate blog, to journal what's in my heart, or should I rather say, what's at the HEART OF THINGS, for me anyway. So if you find "our Daily Bread" on my sidebar, that's where I've been for the last few posts. For me, Our Daily Bread (ODB) is more of a journal to see where this road takes me, and to document all the ups and downs, and learning curves, for anyone else who may be toying with the idea of starting to grow some of their own food, as I have. This green thing to some seems so daunting, and too big to tackle I should imagine, in the minds of many, but at a talk last night, something was said that put it all into perspective for me. Someone of power in China commented on the fact that a small problem X by the number of people in China, would amount to a very large and serious problem, however the reverse is also true - a very large, serious problem, divided by the number of household/families/people in China, would become a manageable, small problem. That was me done - I just got it.
So armed with all my new books, the right mindset and a sense of purpose, I hope that ODB will lead to greater things...like fresh produce!!....or at worst, a healthy respect for those who can provide it! I decided on the name after seeing "Daily Bread" in a recipe book, and thinking how the term just conjuors up for me, the basics in life, going right back to the beginning of time and man, when we trusted the earth, respected and KNEW her.
So whilst I may be the "Elle Woods" (Legally Blonde) of the organic world - yes remember how people looked at this 'lover of all things pink and bling' and made the fatal mistake of assuming that she couldn't hack it as an academic, I think this material girl's going to prove that not all earthmother, organic types have to wear TIEDYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
