Welcome

Hey. If you're reading this, I'm surprised, but glad. I just put a bunch of time into setting it up. Now I'm itching to get out there and interact with my beloved Lost Coast, rather than continue to sit here and interact about it, for the remainder of the limited daylight minutes this winter day offers.

In the future, I hope to share and generate thoughts on stuff that matters. And maybe even stuff that doesn't appear to matter. As I've read somewhere, that which you give your attention to, grows. And as Pema Chodron reminds us "This very moment is the perfect teacher." Or I think it was Roseanne Roseannadanna (may the late, great, Gilda Radner rest in peace) said: "Seems like every where you go, there you are. It's kind of like having bees buzzing around in your head. They keep buzzing around and buzzing around..." But I get ahead of myself (and date myself to those of you who actually remember Radner's great schtick).

You can expect thoughts on this wild planet, or what's left of what's wild on this planet, and why that matters. Thoughts on how people interact with each other, and why that matters. And less esoteric posts on the events we're all sharing at the community, regional and larger levels.

Ideas for what needs to be talked about, or what would just enrich life, are welcome.

Anybody who does a little Gilda Radner reset is worth my time. I will check back to see what you have posted. My chance to welcome you to the Humboldt Blogsphere. I was the newbie not too long ago.

Thanks! You're kind to pop in and provide a little encouragement. I'll try to keep it fresh.

Welcome Rosanna Rosannadanna.

Thanks for the welcome, Richard and Ernie. I hate to be mysterious, but for personal reasons, I'druther not say too much about myself, including where I live. But I'll go on and on about everything else!

Tara,

Welcome aboard! We'll be reading and commenting.

thanks, Ekovox.

I've been sick for a few days, and not feeling terribly creative. I apologize for neglecting to feed the e-neuron network for a little while, whilst I mend. Back atcha soon.

I'm newish to the area. I live in town,(Eureka) and am having trouble getting my compost pile to heat up. I've built a wooden box with a top that sits in good sun all day.

Do the plastic composters available at the recycling center work? I don't really want to use plastic, so any advice in another direction would be appreciated.

Tara said...

I'd love to hear anybody's ideas on that as well. It just seems so silly to through perfectly good organic material down the disposal or into the garbage, then go buy a bag of dirt that's been trucked who knows how many miles to the job. Perhaps I'll rummage around in the online gardening community for northern climes and see what's out there.

(And I meant "throw", not "through", in the above, of course. Isn't it odd how this medium tends to pull homonyms out of our brains more than the hand-written word does? Or is it just me?)

any friend of the wild is a friend indeed.

thanks for putting it out there.
