It’s been almost a year since Facebook broke up with me. I made a new account to stay in contact with friends, but I never really revived the habit of being “on” Facebook. I don’t really post, except for these blogs, which are basically broadcast letters to my friends, my people. I don’t miss itContinue reading “Life Without Social Media”

Hard Work, Work…
I don’t Social Media these days. I don’t do much of anything. All I do is work. I’ve trained most of my life for this in one way or another. Running a kitchen is one thing. Running a restaurant is another. I’m in the process of learning how a high volume restaurant works. I’ve workedContinue reading “Hard Work, Work…”
The trip home felt quick but relaxing. I expected to have to decompress for at least a week upon my arrival, but I already felt rested when I arrived. In the Army, recovery is what you do after returning from the field. It’s a process to get everything ready to go again. Normally, this processContinue reading “Recovery”
I felt like a time traveler. I changed the time on the truck three times over the course of the trip, gaining an hour each time.
By the time I post this, I believe we (I) will be done. Some of the planters are going back to the farm, but not enough to warrant a full-time cook. I’ve started looking at maps to plot my way home, and I’m looking forward to having a house, with a toilet, my own bedContinue reading “La Fin”
The precursor to winter is fall, and it’s at this time, after animals have spent the summer putting on fat for winter that they are hunted. Moose season in New Brunswick started this week. It’s only a week long, and non-tribal hunters must enter a lottery to get a tag. Hunters also seek out ducks,Continue reading “Moose Season”
The leaves are changing to their fall colors, and we saw a full Harvest Moon illuminate the night sky. The moon was so very bright that she cast very distinct shadows. When I awoke to her glory, I couldn’t even see the constellations. The days continue to be warm, even hot with a lot ofContinue reading “Fall”
My husband, Ric, used to tell me that the week after Burning Man was when fall began in Canada. He was right. Even though we no longer attend the event, in a lot of ways, we still time our year by its timeline. Far away from the dusty lakebed playa, on the other side ofContinue reading “Deep Woods”
So, I was hacked and subsequently went to Facebook jail. It happened at the worst possible time, while I was in the Bush without signal. Had I been in a place where I could respond to the hacking right away, I don’t think it would have been so bad. Ultimately, I lost ten plus yearsContinue reading “The Aftermath”
Keeping the planters fed is more than just putting food out.
