These eggs are a small triumph. The extra orange egg on the right has been laid by our back yard hens. The one on the left comes from a local farm with "range free" chickens selling through the local organic grocery store. This makes me want back yard goats all the more for the extra good milk they would provide to our family. What extra potency is coming into our bodies through this good food and what added vitality is entering into our lives through the experience of taking care of our own animals and garden. These simple life giving practices are ages old and only recently shorn off from the modern life style. I think it is time to look for all the babies that went out with the preverbal bath water and bring them back into our daily life rituals were they can reconnect us with meaning, reconnect us with God, reconnect us with ourselves and who we are becoming.
