Getting the blog-roll rolling…

Hippie:  define hippie….call ’em what you will, personally I’ve always be rather proud of the label.  You don’t need to take a vow of poverty or swear off shaving your legs.  You don’t need to burn bras, or attend Green Peace rallies.

My father, suit and tie extraordinaire that he is, is the one that called me “one of those hippie types”   a long time ago.  I had questioned him on something involving artificial ingredients.  I had said that all natural ingredients would be better for one’s health and there you have it.  I’m a hippie.

I don’t consider myself to be a “hardcore”.  Yes, I shave legs and my vanity will not allow me to just age gracefully – I color my hair.  I also have a distinct advantage.  I don’t run in circles that require me to dress for success everyday.  Therefore, I rarely bother with make up or hair “products”.  I don’t need to.

I am unbelievably blessed in so many ways.  I live in a small farming community in a garden variety house with a 100 x 100′ lot.  The “town house” as I call it serves as shelter and is also the research and development department (R & D) for my burgeoning organic farm (www.summerberryorganics.com – link’s on the right).

Base Camp (or as my son James calls it – Headquarters) is evolving into a study in urban agriculture.  These adventures will be posted on the farm site blog (www.summerberryorganics.com).  As an ardent student of Permaculture much of my life centers around developing my own brand of food security.

As Hippie Ways evolves, it will develop into a cottage industry natural body care line.  As I noted earlier, I’m working on rustling up some funding to get it rolling.  I believe VERY strongly in my body care line.

Your skin is your largest organ…why would you grind (or slather, or rub, or soak) chemical based anything into your skin?

I’ll save this for future bits…

  1. Thank you for your wonderful article; this is the type of thing that continues to keep me on track throughout my day. I’ve been searching around for your website after I heard about them from a friend and was happy when I was able to find it after searching for a while. Being a avid blogger, I am glad to see others taking initiative and contributing to the community. Just wanted to comment and show my appreciation for your posts as it’s actually very encouraging, and many people do not get the credit they deserve. I know I’ll come back to read more and will tell my friends.

  2. Great blog! I actually love how it’s easy on my eyes and also the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!
