According to AP, as the pandemic rages on, with more than 20 million still claiming unemployment benefits, food banks are dishing out more meals than ever.
The one place millions of Americans found themselves this year, as readers may recall, really starting in mid-March, have been food bank lines. We highlighted this phenomenon sweeping across the country as the pandemic wrecked the working poor as they grappled with food insecurity.
After Frost’s Descent last year, I made a jar of persimmon vinegar, and have been waiting till the first snow this year when it’s ready to be served. With frigid chill outside, we nestle around the fireplace, eat newly dried persimmons, And dip the grilled isaws in the vinegar to go with hot fish soup– Such a luxury of winter… May the red, red persimmons see the old year out, And bring all of you a happy, prosperous new year!
When I was little, grandpa taught me a rather puzzling jingle: “Sweet potato and taro are surnamed Zhang, better roasted than boiled for long.” Even today I still haven’t figured out why on earth they had anything to do with the surname Zhang, but I love them anyway! At the beginning of the year, several rows of taro were planted at the gate of the front yard, and water yam at the back door. Now it’s just the time to feast on them. Taro with chicken stew, roasted taro, eggs with taro balls in brown sugar…And you? How do you like your taro best?
When you are wrapped up in a moment of your reality, things can seem very far away, unattainable and out of reach. Breathe into the moment and let it pass. Earth-existence is a very transitory space and will change in an instant if you only let it. ~ Creator

We would begin saying, “I’m not ever going to get it done. I’m an eternally expanding Being, and I’m doing great where I am, and I’m so eager about what’s coming.” That’s the essence of the vibration that keeps adventurous things coming, keeps you feeling always excited, stable and secure, keeps you feeling in love with life. All day, every day, count your blessings! All day, every day, make your lists of things you appreciate. And as you keep activating what is working in your life, then more pleasing things on all subjects will flow to you.
Beloved Ones, understand that when you judge yourself for something, you are actually re-enforcing it. You judge yourself for something because you don’t want it to be there, but the very judgment strengthens that limitation. Feel grateful for the experience, feel deep gratitude for your own self. And allow for the possibility that deep gratitude can start the process of dissolving, those things that you have judged about yourself. Beloved Ones feel deep gratitude for yourself, feel deep gratitude for yourself.
It’s been a long time coming and we still have a long way to go, but we can now confidently say that an era of new media has begun.
Over the last several years, we have clearly seen the writing on the wall that Big Tech would start getting far more aggressive about how it polices content. Not satisfied with merely fact checking and adding notices, entire channels have been deleted for wrongthink.
