Depression Rules The Day, Vegetables For Those Who Need Them
Posted Sep 12 2013 12:00am
Depression is rearing its ugly head right now, can't seem to shake it off. Combination of not feeling good, circumstances with the mother in law, and feelings of having had wasted my life, nothing too heavy. I can't do anything about how I feel or the mother in law, but I wish I had done a better job with making my life count towards something. I feel I was nothing more than a cog in the go to work and pay your bills machine, not accomplishing anything of importance. I dreamed once of making a difference, looks like that ship has sailed?
My dream was to teach the impoverished how to become more food self sufficient by teaching children how to grow food. 180 or so public schools in my county, if each of them grew a 40 x 40 foot garden just think of how much food that would garnish. I also wanted to turn vacant lots and unused county property into community gardens. Think what it would mean to people who their only exposure to vegetables are the onions that come on the double cheeseburger they get on the dollar menu. Oh well, it was a nice dream to have at one point.
