Sitting here on this very cold and stormy day, writing as the day that is fast descending into a windy evening.
The banks are in their death throes and are now preparing to take money out of people’s private accounts.
I refer, of course, to Cyprus and what is unfolding there.
Cyprus is a test zone…it will be a template for what these despicable bankers want to do everywhere!
Our governments, who we relied upon, to pass legislation, that would protect the bees and stop their decline through the use of certain pesticides, have ignored the will of the people and bowed to the demands of the corporations.
I count the three acres of biodiversity, created here at Bealtaine Cottage, as one of them.
The commodities brokers, who have serious gambling addictions, are now gambling on the very food that people are relying upon to stay healthy and in some cases, alive!
Short term governance, based on an economic model, which is itself based on infinite economic growth, continues to create mayhem.
Did no-one in government, with all their overpaid consultants, ever cotton onto the fact that resources are dwindling and the planet is the same size as it ever was and will not be expanding any time soon?
If ever, in the course of a life, there was a time to plant food and learn a craft, build a pantry and invest one’s money in one’s life, it is now.
The night is drawing in…a metaphor perhaps for what is happening around us…but as with the dark, comes the light and I look forward to a brilliant dawn tomorrow and a dishevelled, but calm garden.
I shake my fist at the lot of them and continue to plant!
Bealtaine Cottage is also on YouTube…with over 85 videos about Permaculture, planting, growing and living.
