After a week of winter it’s warm again. Bread rises on the counter. The baby sleeps.
Worry over what’s in store for the planet gives way to the pleasure of the moment:
this cup of tea, this drinking in of peace.
It began simply, slowly, this adventure in old fashioned living.
What seemed difficult and unnatural has proven just the opposite.
And so our efforts have grown. Just as our impact on the planet decreases.
Life grows simpler and simpler, as do our goals.
Less waste. More joy.
It’s an old recipe for a new world.
And we’re making it up as we go.
