Canada geese in a Flying V cut across grey skies.
Autumnal shift.
The stars, our map of who we are and where we are going, routes our journey, as new constellation cosmically dance over head.
Tree lines awash in a vivid display or reds and yellow give us pause to bask in their ephemeral beauty.
Crunch of leaves under foot.
Time to bring in the corn
Corn is one of those plants that I love just being around. I hand plant all of my corn in the ground, there is such a sacredness to it.
I love its structure and its growth pattern, its history, its diversity and spread around the globe.
For 9000 year years humans have been live with corn, from its humble mesoamerican roots as a simple grass to its not so humble monoculture gmo landscape take over.
