I was interviewing our Food Justice Coordinator
for Edible Landscape Projects
nurturing democratic peaceful outcome
and trend analysis,
none of which would competitively sell papers.
She asked most of my questions.
I responded, as usual with her,
writing my tension-filled
and therefore possibly publishable
She replies to my
Why are Edible Landscapes
a nutritional health and justice priority?
With a question
How are youir own health ingested landscapes
a therapeutic priority for you
and your Tribe?
So I write down some notes
about how restoring nutritional justice
deserves more of my personal investment
because healthy grace
and graceful beauty
and have always been,
democratizing cooperative vocations
multi-generations of EarthTribes
have, and still do, give to ourselves
going way back to cave drawings
and rock gardens,
fragrance and sounds of oceans
and sweetgrass meadows,
shrines to everyday sacred healthcare warriors
and peace-makers and singers
and liturgical rain dancers
for cooperative multi-regenerational
thirsty and hungry receivers.
Gifts of perfect nutrition
absorbed through mouths worshiping at sacred tits
but also eyes
and ears inhaling grace-filled birdsong forests.
I read this back to her
and asked if this fits
with what she intended to say
about family and community priorities
for restoring edible,
She says Obviously so.
Nutrition is Grace is love,
she reminds us,
but actively so obviously so.
Not just a passive yin potential power!
Love activates a graceful racing horse
toward nutritional nurturing climates
feeding long-term organically full life–
pro-active natural/spiritual Love.
We agreed to meet again
for another cooperatively unmarketable interview
away from our competing racetracks–
a garden venue,
or maybe an organic farm,
an outdoor reforesting classroom
nutritionally re-opened for our self-organizing
inside incubating resilience,
Reweaving sacred health
with secular co-invested wealth.
On my way out
I noticed a notice
for cooperative healthcare managers
1. Inflicting market competitions
does not grow affective or effective health cooperations.
2. Punishing revenge against lesser creatures
and their faith systems
is not therapeutically healthy
for growing higher democratic creatures.
3. Harvesting and commercializing Saints
does not grow
Future multicultural Raptures.
4. A tolerated WinLose truce
is not proactive WinWin Grace.
5. Red RightWing apartheid
is not Green LeftWing Peace.
