and the new address is...

with difficulties fromt the company filters, etc making photo downloads very tricky, and being now the proud mama of a beautiful Sony alpha 100 digital camera, i just can't NOT do pictures on my blog anymore.

so stop in for tea some time

Tis the Season

in blog-cruising over my morning cuppa, wandered past a site inviting a haiku for the season. not a particularly gifted poet myself, i don't often attempt this, but was struck by a bolt of (i thought) inspiration. all things being relative, we must keep in mind that inspiration for a non-poet does not rank highly among those gifted by the muse, but i like it, so here it is.

season's gluttony
wholistic oblivion
darkening my soul

where are Peace, Love, Joy?
few wise ones are wandering
with gifts not pillage

look to the children
gift them with ancient wisdom
love of man and earth

and on a less serious note, i've finally got my new Mac, AND the beautiful digital SLR i've been lusting after for just ages, so am hoping over the holidays to learn how to use the things well enough to update the look of my blog and post a few pictures

Merriest Christmas!
make your feast hunred-mile style
gifting from the heart

we had our 2nd annual biofuels conference last weekend. one of the guest speakers was Lyle Estill, who made a big impression last year, and didn't let us down a bit when he returned for an encore. here's his site.
