  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

Holy shite!!!


I know, it is really crazy. But, these boys know where their food comes from. And, as Silas said, this will be a handy skill if they ever become lost in the woods!


Wow very impressed.

Wow, I'm impressed. I know I would have to survive on plant life in the wilderness. I can't believe you do this in front of the other chickens though. :( They know what's coming. Very timely though with all my nutrition classes and really understanding where your food comes from and honoring those who play a role in growing/raising/preparing your food. Animals that lead a good life and who were killed humanely are healthier to eat than all the poor cows and chickens, etc. that are not. Can't wait to visit the farm! Hopefully sooner than later.
