My Driveway and Patience


It’s been a long day. A full day of work and a Food Policy council meeting after work. I love being on the council; food is what I do. I can’t feed the world’s hungry but I can make sure that no one in my community goes hungry. I believe in sustainable, 100 mile diet, local, non GMO, organic, free range , grass-fed and all the good things. I love food and cooking, I love to try new things and tastes. I read this blog post today and it really resonated with me. I concur that I am not a “foodie” either.

When I am tired,  my drive home, my 25 km driveway usually brings me back to the present. I am so grateful to have the time  and the view from my windshield. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t see some form of wildlife, farm life or nature that delights me. It is so easy to become habituated to our surroundings. Living on auto-pilot, lost in our minds.

See what I see on  my driveway and everything becomes connected.
