GREETINGS FELLOW GROWERS:
How can Christmas be upon us? I know you haven’t heard from me in a short while. As usual, it has been because I/we have been so busy. We continue to evolve here at the Veggie Clinic and there have, once again, been some pretty dramatic new developments in the past several months. I actually have a lengthy new newsletter ready to go out. Because it is Christmas in just a matter of days, I have decided to make this mailing solely a wish for joy, happiness and health for you, your family and all those around you! As soon as we get through Christmas week I will send out the lengthy newsletter. It may tweak your grey matter a bit!! I hope it does.
As we move forward into a new year, let us all think about how we can be truer to our personal philosophy, find the courage and strength to stand up for what we believe in, reach out to our fellow humans with compassion and understanding, want less and give more, be more gentle on the earth and, of course, GROW BIGGER TOMATOES!!
I was listening to an interview with Marlo Thomas the other day and she gave a quote that her dad – Danny Thomas – used to say to her as a child. I thought it was very poignant and can simply explain a lot of the problems humankind is experiencing:
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD – THE TAKERS AND THE GIVERS.
THE TAKERS EAT BETTER – BUT THE GIVERS SLEEP BETTER.
Might I make a suggestion that we all choose a charity of choice and GIVE a little to some of our fellow human beings who lack so many of the things we take for granted – food, water, medical care, shelter and security from fear for their family’s safety. It will also be the best present you can give yourself!
Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends. Talk with you next week.
