Testing the Waters of Reader Interest

So I created a fabulously long poll on many different ideas that I want to write about, but I couldn’t get WordPress to work with me on this one… yet. I thought at first that I would present to you a simple four subject choices to go further in depth with. But, I am now on letter “U” of options… and each one of those choices really represent many different subtopics. The easiest ways to summarize those topics would be, A. Homesteading, health and sustainability topics, B. Environmental toxicity, and food contaminants and empowering you to make knowledgeable choices emphasizing your values, C. Analysis of scientific studies and ways of interpreting data and study conclusions as well as clarifying intent, D. Recipes for avoiding certain allergens(food) or chemicals(hygiene products) E. My undergraduate thesis.

Please respond to these broader choices instead under the comments. Thank-you!!

INTEREST IN FLOWERS

Leave a comment

By Jennifer Hubbard

What seeds have born
exciting spring renewal
rejecting cold
dormancy for green
lengthening days warm
bud hearts mature
pigmenting embryonic apical
meristematic bud tissue with April
showers of sun devotion
exciting electrons to jump
new rings, new lucid sweet sap
renewed interest in flowers

Teething…

I’d like to post something a bit more in-depth but it is a teething and tylenol night and now 1am. It is probably 1 degree out now as well… I still need to pump and take a shower before I get to bed. I did try to post a beautiful tropical Galapagos beach picture to remind me that sanity still exists somewhere warm, but wordpress was not being cooperative. I will try again tomorrow.
