I'm going to lay low for a bit; my emotions have taken a hit on several levels and I need to regroup.
I wanted to share with you an interview in the Globe & Mail with Michael Pollan, before I go though. If you're at all interested in the debate between Big Ag/Little Ag, or if you care where you food comes from, how society and agriculture meet, you might want to read this. I think a few points have been articulated very well.
Also, my trip to market was very brief but enjoyable this morning (once I left the house; my health has not been well of late). I got a few small bottles of maple syrup from my maple syrup guy that I'm going to mail out to a few friends (EL, LR) from fresh crop! And I got one of those little maple syrup cones. I can't even tell you the joy I had when I saw he had those. It was my childhood re-lived. My day is complete after consuming one of those little cones of gold. Mmmm... maple syrup.
Be well.. and have a great weekend!
