i finally finished "animal, vegetable, miracle" by barbara kingsolver. what an awesome book. i recommend it highly to everyone. not just hippie farmers like myself. it's the true story of one family's attempt at eating totally local for one year and being as self-suffient (food-wise) as they can. it has given me all kinds of inspiration. and helped bring validity to my new life.
so, the book is done and i'm sad. i'm always sad when i finish a book. i don't like things to end. but that's me. i get depressed on the last few days of a vacation or a tour. "oh, no, only one more week in italy," or "i can't stand it! only two more shows on this tour!" i dread reality. but now a days, my reality is pretty good. or rather, i have altered my reality so that i can hold conversations with goats, dogs, donkeys, and chickens. they are my staff. porkchop's the boss. and guido is my apprentice.
