Why.. have I never encountered this before??!!!
I watched it.. and yelled "EXACTLY!!!!!!!"
He gets it.. he got it... YES!!!!!!
Thank you Arsenius... this movie was, indeed amazing.
I'm still reeling..
My focus.. although myopic compared to his mind blowing scale.. was seeing a huge rift in agriculture... the decline.. the loss of common sense.. the huge expansive problem looming in the distance coming ever closer. Myopic in that politics are like nails on a chalkboard to me.. however the clear and present failings in environment, food, resources... It is right there, staring at us unblinking.. if you just look up.
Just a few days ago I was battling the wind, trying to get something, anything done in spite of the weather.. and I paused in frustration.. wondering "Why I am doing this? Why am I drawn to it? Is there a point, a purpose for what I do? Why do I care?"
It is wanting to provide my family with unadulterated food, it is seeing the potentially impending need tomorrow for what I do today.
It is hard work. Realization of scale when you are trying to accomplish so much without, or with extremely little use of oil... It is a learning experience.
While I do wish I could throw money at it all... buy the compost, buy the tiller, buy, buy, buy... a fast start, gardening's version of instant gratification... I am appreciating having to push doing what I know and working around what is not available. I get a kick out of that... It's nice to realize it isn't in vain.
