Hippie Ways. It started out as a silly conversation between my bank manager father and I. A discussion surrounding his CHEAP chocolate covered almonds. I asked him why he didn’t fork out a buck or two for the really GOOD ones as opposed to the waxed, chocolate-flavored variety. He shot me a strange look and asked me if I was turning into “one of those hippie types”. I shot back that “my hippie ways have always served me well”.
I’m a HIPPIE.
No, I don’t wander around in tie-dyed clothes and hemp rope sandals. In the changing face of our world I like to think there’s a little bit of hippie in all of us. The part in each of us that tells us caring for ourselves without chemicals is a good thing. That caring for our surroundings without damaging them is a good thing. That eating food that is grown in our own backyards (or nearby) is a REALLY good thing.
Hippie Ways is simply my thoughts on sustainability, living an ecologically intelligent life and a multitude of other things that are important to me. My ego tells me that I have a unique view of this life, and I’d like to share my observations. My kids tell me differently sometimes… I firmly believe that it’s the little things we do that make the biggest difference.
