My neighbor, who is very sweet, as well as developmentally challenged, has a habit of coming into my backyard and leaving the gate open. At least I think it is she who leaves it open... The gate is often mysteriously open after I meticulously close it, and I doubt the chickens know how to open the latch. I know she visits when I'm not home because I've found her there before.
Yesterday morning was the Drip Irrigation Demonstration at Linda and Kurtis Colonna's lovely home in Manchaca. The plan was to install two irrigation systems, one at what I am calling the "Tropical Hook," and the other at the swale and berm they built at the corner of the yard where the driveway meets the street, which I'm calling the "Angle Berm".
Recently, one of my clients let their subscription to AVG anti-virus lapse and all 8 computers on their network were complaining about the subscription having expired. I purchased a new license key and went about putting it into the AVG's that were running. Strangely, the field for the license number was grayed out so I couldn't paste it in.
We had a great organizational meeting this past Saturday, after the work part of our day, at Posse East in Austin, Texas.
Our objectives for meeting were to, 1) make sure we keep up our gardens after they are installed, 2) create work teams and team leaders for upcoming permablitzes, 3) plan the August permablitz, and 4) visit Kealing Middle School and begin the design process for the September permablitz.
There are just a few things that offer me peace of mind when it comes to being able to accept my own mortality, things like trusting in the creative pattern of the universe, or watching Joseph Campbell's video series, "The Power of Myth," or building gardens and houses that will continue to function for decades after I'm gone, OR like today listening to Pink Floyd's song, "Time," and "Great Gig in the Sky" on my way home from work.
