Part of my new mission is to shrink my carbon footprint. The Red Rocket is mostly parked, but I’m thinking smaller yet. I’ve been going vegetarian one bite at a time; I’m more than half way there. 

               I purchased my first can of jackfruit, and I’m proud of it. There’s been very little pork ever  in the doublewide, and no beef now either. I still sneak some chicken and fish in but not every Trader Joe’s trip these days. 

                I was pondering enlightenment, early this morning. I’m not running the show, but I like to think about who is. I’m a big fan of  thinking. I’m comfortable out of my skin, detached from it and everything else. I am trying to get to where I am going before I go. 

                 I’m just the opposite of those who believe in nothing. I believe in nothing and everything else too. Nothing is easy. Enlightenment is a lot of practice. I’m not much for much dogma, I like my tabula rosa when I’m mucking about, free of bad programming, all programming. Keeping that porch swept ain’t easy.

                 I’m going to where I’m going, and happy to get back, and that was how it went early this morning. After doing the field work, I came back to work on Raytheon5. Then the jackfruit.

                   Easy enough to prepare like pulled pork simmered in barbecue sauce, Jackfruit does on the stove in thirty minutes what would take hours with pork. Stacked on a whole wheat bun with coleslaw, the taste and texture of the pulled jackfruit was surprisingly good. I had two.

                    I went out and raked up avocado tree leaves. My tree is shedding in May, with lots of new green in there. Now it’s nap time. The sun is finally sneaking out of the cool post rain afternoon sky. I’m taking a nap.

Sounds extremely worthwhile. A superstar of nutrition. I think I tried jackfruit up in Little Chute, chasing windmills. So are they sold by the pound, better for you than ground round?

just back from Paradise Cheeseburger, yeah tomorrow may rain, so alvederzane, for now, hey: stay sane

Dr. Hart: Better for the planet. I’m learning how to be a better human, or at least eat like one. Lilt on!
