Why do you cut down those flowers and bring them inside
The beauty of nature is for everyone to enjoy
Their stems have feelings
It hurts Mother Earth
Well, I said
We are humans, sometimes we like to take a little of the beauty for ourselves
Our beings thought about it enough to feel the need
to cut the flowers and bring them inside to look at
We can’t always be outside
In the sun and elements and visible to everyone
Who knows, I think,
Maybe we are specks in another universe
And when someone cuts the flowers from that ground
We die in this world
And are brought inside

Puppy Breakfast! & some food tips for your best friend


Today I was seeing what I could make out of all the random stuff in my fridge, and thought I would post a basic breakfast I made for my awesome dog, Valentine. I cook clean, fresh foods for her to mix with her kibble whenever possible, or if we are away somewhere that only has crap dog food in the stores.

This super easy breakfast included:

  • 1 Scoop Wellness kibble
  • 1 small Fuji apple
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 C carrot chips
  • 1/4 C brown rice
  • Sprinkle of cheddar cheese shreds

My version was the same minus the kibble (uhh), plus some carne asada and apple on the side. Two happy girls! I included some handy food tips below, and encourage all dog owners to check it out after the jump: Continue reading

Shipwreckin Again…

Trips me out when people keep going back to the same lovers and friends that stall their growth and happiness. I wasted quite a lot of time and energy in that boat too, for sure… And now I understand why my friends were so mad at me for it! Kicking up the undercurrent in your life is terrifying no doubt. But it’s the only way to keep moving toward the horizon, and not get swallowed up by the bullshit. Several things this week have made me appreciate even more, the ability to BE happy and rebuild a life without that bullshit. It’s hard work and I may have burned a few bridges in the last several years, but as they say, it lights the way and keeps me from ever going back…
