1000 Reasons

I have 1000 reasons to be happy and a few reasons to feel otherwise. The few is winning.

See the empty seed flat to the left? Imagine dozens of those filled with many, many, tiny seedlings in little root balls. I helped empty those seed flats today, tiny seedling by tiny seedling. I placed them carefully into larger flats, where they will grow for another month or so before they are sold in the store.
It was repetitive, and monotonous, and it allowed me much time for much thought, and that was bad. I realized that I have even more issues than the ones I've already identified. I've realized that handling tiny flowers for 7 hours can make one a little nutty. I don't have room for additional nutty. I'm maxed out on nutty. Thankfully my new job is not strictly about transplanting. Just this week will be spent at the "farm". But Holy Hell, who knew?

Here are some lyrics for you...guess the song?

high time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man. And the lovetrain rides coast to coast -- d.j.'s the man we love the most. Could you be, could you be squeaky clean and smash any hope of democracy? As the headline says you're free to choose There is egg on your face and mud on your shoes....One of the days they're gonna call it the blues...

Oh, sorry, I just got caught up in the lyrics.
Seriously though, I have been reading your blog and I enjoy it. Trying to follow and can't find where to do so on your page. Do I just subscribe and that's it? Thanks!
