The above image was borrowed from Face Your Farmer, and the below one has been floating around the internet for quite a while. I like what they say and I believe them both to be true and accurate...but that's not why I do both these things (at least not the only reason). Each year I grow a victory garden in my front and rear yards and of course I ride bikes a lot, mostly for transportation. I do this because I enjoy the vegetables and I dislike cutting grass, and the bike riding keeps me fit and saves money on petrol. But mostly, I do both these things because I enjoy doing them...I'm just saying. But, on the same note, I also feel that if more people did these things--because they wanted to, not because they were forced to or had to out of necessity--the world would likely be a better place. I also like both of these acts because even an introvert like myself can perform them and still--hopefully--have an impact. At the very least, I hope that if you--the reader or visitor to this blog--agree with these that you will download the images and pass them along. I'll get off my little soapbox now. Peace.
