No Alternative Dream
So, I recently came back to LJ after a long absence to find a person, and I thought I'd make an update while I'm here. |
I'm doing good, I'm still living in Portland and I've been really enjoying the good weather we've had the last few days. I just got back from southern oregon where I planted 60 trees with my parents. We're making an edible hedgerow featuring evergreens, nitrogen fixing trees and shrubs and such delights as blue, black, and ras berrys, hops, grapes, kiwi and goumi! also planted some holly and made plans to get 60+ more trees to fill in the row and other spots around their property. The first part of the row is 180 feet long, with another 200 feet to be included eventualy.
I've got a bunch of my own projects going here in PDX, including trying to meet new people. As I'm sure many of my long time aqauintances know I'm a bit of an introvert (but then aren't most people on LJ? Marvel at the isolating quality of our telecomunications technology!) so I've resorted to posting a personals ad in the local rag. After getting a couple replys I actualy feel pretty good about it, I guess if this suck ass technology has to exist it might as well serve to meet me some new friends!
I've also got a thriving garden, and I'm expanding it! I'm going to be trading people gardern or whatever kind of work in exchange for trees and perinianls! Should be great. I'm also hoping to move into a bigger house soon. I'm overfilling this one with beer making, plants and other various projects, and my sister just moved in with me so I really could use the room. We'll see how it all pans out.
I'm really intrested in Peak Oil and resource issue now, I just got back from a meeting on the subject. It was really great, the subject was fear. It was a group discussion, not a lecture and I found it really intresting mostly for the dynamic that was present. A group of people talking about their fears can border on breaking the normal calm social rules. I would call it "charged."
I'm glad to see that many of my old LJ frinds are still here and posting. Royaboya, astarchild, dueserpenti, respectingtrees, seppuku_files, spectralcoyote, starvetheangels, taddypole, and sorry if I missed anyone.
Anyway, I'll be off now. I spent alot of time on LJ being very depressed and it sucked. I find much more happiness reflecting on things besides myself. Not that I avoid self reflection, but I tend towards deppresion when I hang out here alot.
And with than, goodbye for now, LJ!
