    My journey into being the Luke Sky Walker of chickens has taken a strong step forward. Fall Creek Gardens has a gardening class that I have just registered for and in Feburary I'm attending Ivy Tech for Culinary and Pastry Baking Arts. My life long goal is to raise my own live stock and crops. A culinary education will be more than just a financial benefit.

    In the ways that most of society has come to accept G.M.O. foods from the Monsanto influence the world food market makes my choice a necessity. In the spring I hope to acquire a female Rhode Island Red, Americuana, and a male Americuana in the form of chicks. I want chicks so that I can learn everything entailed in caring for my animals and more importantly a relationship.

    It's kind of ironic that I use to detest country living when I was a boy visiting my grandfather in Mount Olive Tennessee. That small trailer he lived in, his hunting dogs, his couple of horses, hogs and the chicken coup. I have pursued so many things that I though would unfold the corners of an ideal life. Now to my end I have realized that all I have ever had is the life long goal I have now.

    My 5 other siblings grew up on thatlittle farm. They knew about he bull head, the hogs, the hounds, the couple of horses and donkeys. They have worked to get out ofthe shadow of that country living. They are successful and I have been searching a long time for a way to spend the inheritance of that same seed, which would make me successful. Now I have come to understand that this success isn't based on material currency, or a career, status, or that ideal woman. The change I have been looking for in my life, all these years later is still at the bottom of that long hill in Mount Olive Tennessee in that country living.

    All the ugly things in life have been with me for over half of it. Now I just want to make that quiet piece of life something that will produce what mother has always wanted, which is seeing me get my life together and to be a plant that is the beginning of a community where people living a life less than ordinary, or extraordinary by there approximation can exist in what is considered the impossible in this day and age.

    Just caring and loving people.

    While those words standing alone sound good
    It's going to take all my life and a few more after mine for those words to run there course.
