A 5-Year-Old’s Reaction To Factory Farming

November 12, 2016 at 8:27 pm

Having a formerly vegan, health fanatic for a mother, my daughter’s meat, dairy and eggs have come almost entirely from local, humanely-raised, grass-fed or pasture-based animals, with one exception…

She loves a local ice cream shop called The Hop. When we first moved to Asheville, North Carolina – a progressive “foodie” town – we took her to a trendy ice cream shop a few blocks from our house. Because the ice cream was advertised as “local,” we wishfully hoped it came from a small, humane dairy. But after searching on The Hop’s website, we couldn’t find the name of the farm or farms that provided their milk.

Worshipers of the great God of civilisation – Technology – are destroying the planet and the life forms – human and non-human, flora and fauna – that inhabit this little ball of rock in the Milky Way galaxy. They will reduce this once thriving, living, biotic-community to a dystopian nothingness akin to that of cyber-punk science fiction.

A brewery started by surfers, fishermen and “people who love the sea” has developed edible ring-holders for their six-packs of beer.

The material – made of barley and wheat remnants from the brewing process – is 100-percent biodegradable and safe for fish, turtles, birds and other marine life to eat, unlike the plastic ring-holders that are now killing them by the millions.

Beeswax and Writer’s Block

14569174_10157669639405106_1540836620_nI don’t know what to do with myself. I’m torn between writing a story about how we can “save the world” by replacing plastic wrap and Ziplock bags (which I still use) with beeswax and just lying here under a tree, staring at the sun, letting the clock run out, until it’s time to pick up my daughter from school, where I send her to so I can work more, so I can feed her and house her and buy her things to make me feel less guilty about never spending any time with her.
