Marvelous Mister Mark
In the morning, I awake to my busy life. First, I feed the dog and prepare breakfast for the ancient cat which has no teeth, then I make breakfast for the humans, wash dishes and follow up on emails and messages from friends and clients. When I feel my morning duties are complete, I can head outside to spend my time with my horses.
Go With the Flow
Just because you appear unscathed, does that mean you were untouched? Maybe not physically, but the internal scars run deep. Like a river, they cut a path chosen only for ease of travel. No resistance; shaping stones. The flow is natural. Self-serving.
A Gluten-free Dietary Choice
This is a long story, yadda-yadda, probably more information than you wanted to know. I hope you find it encouraging and informative, whether it’s for yourself or someone you care about. I will write this from the perspective that I’m addressing a person who is interested in making their own diet gluten-free.
Food for Chickens
Reducing our carbon footprint means reducing our waste. We, as a small family unit, do that by recycling, using refillable water bottles, and working to replace plastic kitchen containers with reusable glass. But what we also do, which seems to have the greatest impact for us, is care for a flock of poultry. My goal is to keep my family as healthy as possible. This means doing my best to take care of the Earth, too, so that it has the opportunity to help provide a healthier lifestyle for my family, as well as the rest of the world.
