Welcome All! I'm a dreamer, I hope you are too! A Posse ad Esse, or From possibility to reality, is a general state of mind. I hope you'll share your possibilities with me as I will with you. Namaste~

Freedom Gardener of the Month

Well, to my regular readers, this was the "big news" I alluded to a week or so ago and may I take this opportunity to say "WOW, I am honored!". And to anyone dropping in from the Freedom Gardeners website let me also take a minute to welcome you to my "other" home. I thought I'd take a minute to introduce myself and show you around the ole blog.

You may be wondering what's going on with that crazy title? "A Posse Ad Esse", what's up with that? Well, to me it signifies a sea change in the way I had decided to look at the world and it has changed my life in many ways. It's Latin for "From possibility to reality" and no, I don't regularly speak Latin here (or elsewhere for that matter so don't feel like you have to run out and grab your handy Latin-English dictionary) but I loved what it meant; to make the conscious decision to focus not on what you do not have and grapple with the inevitable frustration that comes with it, but instead to focus on what is "possible" and strive to make it "reality". Since adopting that mindset I have found much greater peace with myself and consequently have been able to realize many of the things I thought were otherwise unattainable.
So, what do I blog about? Well pretty much whatever crazy idea I'm up to at the time. Maybe it's sharing my progress toward having a completely organic garden, or updates on what I like to call the Big Weigh-In where I've been keeping count of everything that I bring in from the garden; you can see updates for that over there in the right column under the picture of the scale; 125 lbs so far! I'm also a huge advocate of Composting, although this years not been as good as I had hoped.
I also write a lot about Repurposeing on the blog. It's a great way to stretch a dollar, keeps things out of the landfill and keeps the old noggin sharp trying to figure out how to make things do. Of course you can also expect to see an occasional update to my Freedom Gardeners Challenges like the 100 ft Diet, Harvest Keepers, and Liberate Your Lawn.
Well, there you go, a pretty good intro to what I'm all about. Of course I'd be remiss if I didn't give credit to the Dervaes family From Path to freedom. I found their blog early last year and it opened my eyes to what was "Possible". I'm glad to be able to call myself a Freedom Gardener and to be associated with the caliber of gardeners that are there.
