Good morning, Friends. I have a shorter-than-usual newsletter for you today. As I mentioned last week, we were moving offices (more like houses) this past Wednesday and while it has gone well, it is still very much going. I'm in my new office, but everything is still in boxes. And there's a whole house to unpack and figure out how it wants to be lived in. I'm feeling both a sense of disorientation and, if I really think about it, a sense of grieving from leaving my previous space where I was for eight years (even though it was our idea!).
On the roast page footer change the twitter ID from http://twitter.com/fireweedcoffeeco to http://twitter.com/fireweedcoffee
I love the reference to Fireweed. I will look into it. Meanwhile, looking for something new like roasting coffee is for you. Would love to be like Fireweed healing the earth I stand on. I actually have had a modest calling to “change the destiny of the earth”. Must be a prayer, meditation and manifesting task since advocacy is not working too well. I may have a cup of coffee even though I did not roast the beans..yum. Confession I have been drinking coffee since the age of six.
For years in veterinary practice I wore a short sleeved dress shirt to work every morning. I got in the habit of ironing the shirt each morning before going to work. It didn't take much time, and only occupied a little of my conscious mind, but just enough to eclipse worries and wormholes and let me center for my day a little. Now, summer season, I water the plants in pots on the front an back decks of our condo. I get to commune with the plants and check in with the beautiful little spiders and their webs that the chickadees haven't eaten yet. Daily mindless chores can turn out to be mindful after all.
ps How come I can´t share a photo? Have a good one of fireweed.
I just read the Tom Tweedy epilogue. I have always felt challenged by the idea of connection without attachment. It seems worth seeking and practicing. Giving up the notion of exclusive ownership. It could help to reduce suffering.
Jeff Tweedy that is.
