Saturday was a great (though long) day of shooting for the New Agrarian Center, in Oberlin. And tomorrow promises to be the same.
They are doing some really great work, which I'm philosophically behind, as far as farming, promoting local goods and more ecologically/economically minded lifestyles.
...Like Evan and I road around in a truck that ran on grease and later made biodiesel. Aside from horrible tire and some sun and chemical burns it was awesome.
Let me just bribe everyone with the fact that: with this company, even if you are working on something that isn't exactly what you would be doing in an ideal world, it is still often fun and in line with principles that you may have.
I hope that as we go forth, we continue to make a really conscious effort to work on projects that help people/the Earth/and ourselves. Wouldn't that be a great thing?
I know it's easy to get anxious when you are outside of the group for a little while - like what the hell happened in the 05/06 winter? - but we who are working are seeing results every day. And I know that will continue to happen as long as we are trying.
We can accomplish anything and I'm not going to let others' worries worry me. But I understand them.
We do have to make $, and we will.
We do have to do what's right for our philosophies, and we will.
We do have to make this art that we are becoming better and better at, and we will.
And if we work hard, those three things will all happen with the same project at the same time.
I know who'll be there.
