Yes, it is My Need to Document that brings me to my blog 
at least once a day to set down my troubles, triumphs and my history.
Today, while exploring my media editor, I made a little movie πŸŽ₯ 
It's more of a collage of images I like.
2 minutes.
I named it 2017

Monkton Chronicles Aquarium Edition


Monkton Chronicles 

Aquarium Edition 
Yes, it has been awhile since I wrote in the Chronicles.

First, I thought we were moving,
Well, we are, eventually,
When the stars and planets are in
Alignment.
I am healing,
Bearing pain, insomnia, boredom, tiredness

That's not the story.

The story is simple.
Match 3 or more,
As I gained gold coins,
I bought fish,plants, decorations.
See snapshot below...
The castle felt more like home.


FYI...I refused to use power ups

What if there was a plant that could save your life...

Well, what if?




I was expanding my thinking about the effects of #cannabis #MedicalCannabis
When the discovery was made recently about
Lymphatic system in the brain. 
My awkwardly worded discussion with my neurologist,
What if the CBD-THC having greater Osmolality,
Draws Lymphatic Fluids away from inflamed nerve tissue,
Brain or elsewhere..?
He nodded,
Makes sense,
What if the lymphatic fluids are sent by and intended by the body to protect the raw nerves?
An unintended consequence is lymphatic fluid increasing pressure in a fixed space, accumulation of metabolites, cellular waste, irritating nerves further.
Had to write this down while fresh in my head.

Spring was Starting

Spring was Starting,

Or so it Seemed.
In between the cold and wind,
The bright spring sunshine appears.

The angle of the Sun's ☀️  position in our sky 🌌
Rises steeper now,
Making it all seem silly,
Of course we are still and the Sun goes around us,
Or at least that is per my perception.

Spirits in the #Fracking Fight


Spirits
Kindred spirits 
Remind me of Why
We Fight.

Our fellow #fracking fighters,
Forge the Trail
For our Earth 🌏 
To maintain its fragile 
Crust.

I can't offer much,
But drawings
And
Poems that don't rhyme.

Our Kin, however,
Know our limits and
Strengths.
Our Perfection was never a Prerequisite 
For our Earth Family.

Required: 
Our 
Caring,
Empathy,
Passion,
And
Our
Spirits 
Are in alignment.

The Fight isn't over.
Meg



Happy Nurse's Week!

For the Nurses...

Flying Notes about Fighting #Fracking and Phipelines, Err, Pipelines

Condensed Version 
I wanted to post this here,
For the Record 


It's not about blocking a pipeline. It's about Property rights,  Right to Due Process, Right to Donate Land for a Park without having a Canadian Gas ⛽️ company just bore right under it, Right for Ratepayers to object, many rights trampled by the PSB lawyer den.

Breaking #fracking

Updates to supersede all others...



I just deleted a bunch of info from group we get in emails 
This one is the Biggest of all!

I'll blog this one.
How ballsy that VGS  is offering liquid gas by highway for businesses off the pipeline route (huh?)
Now the power company putting extension cord in Lake (dredging!)

GMP raising rates

All consequences of Canadian power mogul
Allowed to create greedy power monopoly 
Retaining separate power vendors with original Vermont names
As the prior Governor skates away
Having achieved objectives 
Vermont Yankee Nuclear plant closed ✔️
Solar panels, Windmills subsidies,Higher power charges for 🌏 Long term effects ignored✔️
Allowed Gaz Metro to acquire multiple Vermont companies like Green Mountain Power, retain name✔️
Cram pipeline through expendable Addison County,Taking land from farmers✔️
Maintain Public Service Board That is neither Public Nor A Service✔️
Board code word for Omnipresent Omniscient Omnibus's✔️
"Easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission

They're Back

The Swallows, that is.

It was Thursday 4/27/2017
The weather finally warm enough to sit outside 
The spring birds 🐦 chirping, hopefully.
The tired Swallows showed up,
I didn't hear them at first,
Then I heard them before I saw them,
They cheeped at me, then went off to prepare for summer residency.
Oh, and then I saw a young black fly...🀦‍♀️

Friday Night Musik

This week it finally got warm enough to throw the windows open,

Outdoor sounds drifting in,
Fresh air along with chi 🐣
This week my YouTube  music Link 🎢 for Friday was selected several times,
Each one superseded by the one before.
Mom and Dad popped into my head,
And I paused,
Dave Brubeck it is

Chi

Chi


The weather drew me out into the yard,
The frost was gone.
My body, searching for the sun,
Found special morning weather,
Sun ☀️ 
Low wind πŸ’¨ 
The mud drying enough to get into flower 🌺 beds,
To lightly prune the lilacs, that are just emerging.
Daffodils just coming up,
Rhubarb, chives, bleeding heart and more,
Like a Little light fussing.
I paused to lean on my hoe and breathe the fresh spring air.

It was so hard to get in gear,
To get this far,
To break down a day's work
Into bite size pieces like today,
A gratifying day nevertheless.

The idea I thought of (with Mom's teachings)
was that as I touched the ground directly,
I was Grounding my energies,
My Chi.

That's what I thought of today.

Revenue Blues 2

Revenue Blues 2

Tax and Spending 
That's all those lawmakers do.

Revenue is just another word
For Taxing your sorry 😐 ass.

Lawmakers court and are courted,
By Self Interested bags πŸ’Ό of money πŸ’° 

I write letters,
Like my Mom did,
Sent into the Ethernet,
The virtual circular file.

The tax bills look πŸ‘€ like rent to me,
Spring pay the IRS,
Fall feed the town and state,
For the right to exist on this land,
When they tell us what we can do,
With it.
No, Tax Poetry does Not Rhyme!

Tax, tax, tax
Enough!
I don't care 🀷🏾‍♀️ 
About @Potus taxes,
I care about the Fluff!

#Fracking Fighters Foiled by Foolish Fueliers

The pipeline flows,

Alberta Canada 
to Hinesburg 
Then Monkton 
Then Middlebury
And
Dot
Dot
Dot

Better get used to this new source
Of so called natural gas, or Gaz, north of the border
Where this all came to pass.
The Ratepayers will be billed for this
Travesty.
This Lamd Grab,
Lickety split.

A friend sent these press links 
Titled

Sad Day.

It was.
At the end 
Some photos of life before a high pressure fracked Gaz pipeline bored through our towns,
Taking property,
Butternut trees,
Rare native sunflowers.
