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!

The Onion Reports: Feedbags!

I love The Onion...Hah!
After viewing the film documentary Supersize Me a few months ago I began breakfasting on green smoothies a few times a weeks, avoiding most "fast food" and curtailing my consumption of second helpings, refined white flour and white sugar. It is astounding to wake up and snap out of the trance and perceive the subtle indoctrination to consume, consume, consume that advertisers with humongous budgets place before us daily, on TV, radio, the Internet, billboards ~ basically everywhere. Fighting overconsumption and its evangelizers, mega corporations, is good for you, the earth and as an added benefit, it is sound ethical policy as well! Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, after all and so is Greed, and Envy also, all of which the mass pop culture ferments, brews and stews in people every day.
