Wheat Kings and pretty things, lets just wait and see what tomorrow brings

the other day my friends girlfriend didn't want to come out with us for drinks and he said the reason was because she didn't like to be 'on'. since when did that become an option? since when are we allowed to be off?

clearly i know what she is talking about...but i using it as an excuse is pushing the limit for me.

wake up people! eat this

can it be organic and still come from a can?

apparently the entire container is recyclable, and the aerosol is made with ozone layer-friendly CO2. i didn't know there was such a thing as ozone layer friendly CO2. I would have to pass on this because realistically if i want pancakes its probably a lazy sunday morning anyway, and how hard is mixing up some batter anyway?

I wonder if in the future children will think that everything comes from a can and 'real' vegetables are only something to be hidden in the depths of lasagna. it makes me scared to think of all the things that i put into my body that i have no idea how it is made, what is in it, or where it comes from. i think that a lot of the problems in the world could be solved it we just took living back down to a small scale. knowing where your food comes from is only the first step.

people could form meaningful relationships with the other people providing for them and social skills could exist again. maybe i have just been living in toronto for too long but treating everyone as a means to an end instead of a human being is really starting to drag me down. and i think everyone does it at a certain level - your waitress is only there to provide you with food, the guy in the coffee shop fuels your day, even if you do get to know these people to a certain level its still on the bases that you need something from them instead of actually wanting to get to know them.

tonight was my first pottery class and i have made a goal that i am going to try to fill my living space with things that have been handmade. its really a beautiful thing when someone puts love into something they create. and if i don't have enough money to accomplish that goal at this point then i will at least try to give more homemade gifts, so that i can pass along this feeling i have right now.
