This was a very hopeful, enjoyable and significant event.
We should all celebrate the craftspeople of the land. They are our life-blood. Perhaps we may not survive on them all the time. And if food or clothing was needed for our entire population- they would not be able to handle the demand. But this is the eventual goal. The reality of living from what we grow. This is something that is truly enriching. It is not a sacrifice to rely on your own. It is a beneficial reality.
The connection between something you have been directly involved in, that directly affects you. This kind of a relationship of true symbiosis.
Interdependence is the only way to craft a sustainable society. As with any good relationship, that necessary element- "I need you"
We cannot evolve unless we value our history, a history that embraced the lands usefulness.
The only way we will get there is by fostering patience, kindness, acceptance and to live with a passion for everything that is.
