Love, love, LOVE :)

Posted Feb 18 2009 11:47am
Hello lovelies, I trust you are all enjoying a delicious Love Day weekend so far... ;) As a mini–love celebration, I thought I’d share with you today about three people I love:)
Let’s start, of course, with that incorrigible Mr. Monarch who has been causing controversy and giggles over at The Raw Food World TV show this week – see his latest shows HERE to check in with his antics ;)
Although we are still not able to be together yet in person, this time of year holds many special memories for me in terms of our relationship. When we first were getting to know each other, Valentines Day 2006 came along and the house I was staying in became FILLED with incredible bouquets of flowers and balloons sent by the romantic Monarch ;). My house mates and I were really overawed by it all – me especially so, as I think these were the first valentine gifts I had EVER received ;) Here’s a picture of me with two of those bouquets...
Thank you Mr. Monarch, for sharing all the love – I love you :)

on February the 12th I had:

1 quart water
mug of nettle tea
40 chlorella ‘nuts’
2 cups energy soup with okra and tahini
2 apples with a bar of freshly made vanoffe from The Raw Chocolate Company
2 cups water
mug of ‘choco’ tea
smidgen of leftover energy soup with okra, tahini and some spicy dehydrated sunflower seeds
2 cups rejuvelac
2 cups water

HERE is a VERY cool little video Mr. M just sent me with another being who swells my heart chakra, even if I’ve only just connected with his work – Roger Doiron started the ‘Eat the View!’ campaign, to convert part of the White House lawn into an edible landscape (along with lawns ALL over the place preferably, of course, with the White House setting a wonderful example ;)
In this 4 minute video, Roger ‘becomes the change he wants to see in the world’, showing a sweet, informative little time lapse video of transforming his own garden into an edible yummmm–hub...LOVE it :))) THANK YOU, Roger, for sharing this simple, POWERFULmessage so clearly...all blessings to your campaign...

on February the 13th I had:

1 quart water
cup of dandelion tea
2 cups green juice: celery, cucumber, kale, celeriac, zucchini, ginger, lime
2 cups water
package of fresh jack fruit
2 cups energy soup with okra and tahini
cups of dandelion tea
3 cups water
2 ‘ Snackaroons ’ from laughing giraffe and a sample of their Grawnola – WOW ;O
1 tbsp Sproutein powder
3 cups water


on February the 14th I had:

1 quart water
cup of dandelion tea
40 chlorella ‘nuts’, 1 tbsp bee pollen
2 cups water
package of fresh cherries
2 cups energy soup with okra and tahini
cups of dandelion tea
3 cups water
mug of ‘ Wild Power ’ tea
2 cups green juice: celery, cucumber, kale, celeriac, zucchini, ginger, lime
2 cups water

Finally, I’d love to tell you about one of my all–time heroes :)
Satish Kumar is the editor of Resurgence Magazine, founder of Schumacher College for ecological studies in Devon, founder of the ‘Small School’ movement in the UK, a remarkable pilgrim who has walked a huge area of the surface of this planet and a septuagenarian of exquisite spirit and grace. I love this man.
I had the fortune to pass some time with him a few years back in Devon and was very pleased to recently come across a BBC documentary of Satish, posted on YouTube. The documentary, called 'Earth Pilgrim', follows Satish as he walks the stunning wild landscapes of Dartmoor, the area I’m going to visit down in Devon next week – NICE :)
If you’re not familiar with Satish’s story, he was born in the desert of Rajasthan in India and after his father died while Satish was still a child, he left his family at the age of nine, to become a Jain monk. He was a monk until the age of 18, absorbing principles of gentle living, compassion and respect for all life along the way. At 18 Satish walked away from monk-hood, fell in love with Gandhi’s message of peace and just kept on walking;) He set out on a peace pilgrimage walk to all the nuclear Capital cities of the world – a journey that took him from the grave of Gandhi in Delhi to the grave of JF Kennedy in Washington DC – by FOOT. Satish walked more than 8000 miles around this planet, with no money, no food, just faith in his heart and a vision of peace to guide him. Again, I love this man ;)
Later he moved to the UK and got involved in all kinds of fascinating work around ecology and sustainable lifestyles. At the age of 50, when many people in our societies struggle to walk around the park, this incredibly healthy, beautiful soul set off on a new 2000-mile pilgrimage, around the UK, to many of the sacred sites of this land. Did I mention that I love this man...? ;)
You can read Satish’s wonderful autobiography ‘ No Destination ’ to delve further into his fascinating stories – I really enjoyed this book. Satish truly walks the talk and is a living embodiment of the concept that we’re here to enjoy the journey, rather than arriving at some certain destination. You can order his book HERE.
If you’d love to check out the hour–long documentary with Satish on YouTube, you can see that as a playlist HERE. ( Please just note that parts 5 and 6 are back to front in the playing order ;) I adore what he shares in this video about our relationships with trees, water and animals ... ENJOY :)

love, love, LOOOOVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE,
Miss Stokes and the love elves. xxx
