Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Spring Has Sprung

What a fabbo day! The air is soft, 72 degrees farenheit or so, the sun is shining, and Earth Day is being celebrated early. I started the day with church, then visited a drum circle in honor of Earth Day which the enthusiastic and quirky local Unitarians held on their patio. Then home for a bite to eat and to meet up with my husband and daughter, and then off to the Antelope Park Earth Day festivities.

We roamed around the park, seeing SmartCars, backyard electricity generating windmills, solar panels, water sysytems, straw bale home builders, sustainable agriculture and enthuiastic jazz musicians. Then it was off to the East Campus of UNL for ice cream and flower viewing in their nearby botanical gardens.
Now our daughter is busy making an Earth Day cake, which is a sphere. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope that Lady Spring has touched you today too. Enjoy.
