In the Moment: Autumn is the time of year....

autumn activities, fall exercise, meditation, mindfulness, body and mind

Stop! Take a deep breathe. Do you smell autumn? The earthy smell of decaying leaves is such an amazing scent. Do you hear autumn? Geese overhead flying south, the crunch of leaves under your feet, and the wind rustling the leaves that still cling to the almost bare branches.

Wind of Change: Exercising in autumn

outdoor exercise, exercising in autumn, change exercise routine, exercise routine, workout routine

The sunny, brisk weather of autumn beckons you to pursue those walks, bike-rides and trail runs. You enjoy the rhythmic sound of your breathing – Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale . As you find your pace, you begin to enjoy the radiant reds, oranges and yellows of the changing leaves. The wind gently blows, plucking leaves from their respective branches and tossing them up and around. As the wind settles so do the leaves, drifting to the ground. There they rest until the next wind blows.

Eudaimonia: My own private Syria

Round-up, environmentalist idealism, living green, natural weed killers

“The function of the well-intentioned individual, acting in isolation, is to formulate or disseminate theoretical truths. The function of the well-intentioned individuals in association is to live in accordance with those truths, to demonstrate what happens when theory is translated into practice, to create small-scale working models of the better form of society to which the speculative idealist looks forward.” Aldous Huxley

Eudaimonia: Us against them

Eustace Conway, Elizabeth Gilbert, Turtle Island, The Last American Man, Mountain Man

When looking at the world through Green eyes, our local and federal governments can appear ghoulish. On any given day, the media seems chock full of N.I.M.B.Y. warriors rallying the eco-troops against one corporate villain or another, seemingly always with a shoulder-shrugging Government complaisant in the periphery. Through our screens an epic Us Against Them plays out, the eco-friendlies squaring off against greedy politicians Hell-bent on writing laws that favor the spoiling of the Earth.

Eudaimonia Offerings

The hardest part of making big changes in my life has come in being able to recognize the difference between my dreams and my practical day-to-day actions. As I try to make real the transition from a life of suburban consumerism over to a largely forgotten form of agrarian life, a life aimed at personal self-reliance, I am finding that to keep this difference between what I think it should be like and what it is really going to be like takes more than greenwash sloganeering and armchair slactivism; it seems to take an uncompromising dedication to compromise itself.
