A few months ago, my mother passed away.  At her memorial service, us children were lined up at the door to greet the visitors, and me being the youngest, got stuck on point.  so it was in a bit of a rushed fashion, and in front of quite a few people that a friend from childhood shared a story with me.

 

It seems, as a child I was with a group of kids being driven to church camp by her father.  One of the occupants of the car had gotten carsick, and vomited into a bag.

 

at an appropriate rest area, we all exited the vehicle, her father carefully taking the bag, and setting it on the curb, at the rest stop.

I can't explain it completely, but the next part, as she described it, I was able to completely recall the event.  She says that I walked around the side of the car, and just kicked the bag into the air!  and it relocated its contents onto nearly everybody in the group!  and the lovely odor did punctuate the rest of the trip!

 

Well apparently her father has told the story on countless car rides so the point of the story, from her was, what a celebrity puke kicker I have become, without even knowing it!

 

The reason it was so Ironic, to me, is that, It was not well known to me, that story, and how her father spread it, but that I did "know", I remember walking around the side of a car, and there was this solid bag of something, could be lunch trash, or pirates loot, who cares, I am Eight!,, there was a trash can in the distance, and I clearly had a shot at it,,,, Remember, I am eight, but in fact I can completely recall the sight of the bag, and the truth that "I MUST kick that bag!" truly, nothing could have stopped me,,, Well the rest is history,, or I could say my story, because, sure it turned out to be a bag of puke, and it disassembled itself quite short of the trash receptacle,  as it was always supposed to do, and I have never stopped kicking bags of puke, whenever it is asked of me.

 

The creative spirit, god, if you will, Placed me where I could be of the most use. and as often is, that use only serves the creative ends, not necessarily our own.  And it has continued to do so for the rest of my life.  I have long since found peace with the fact that, if the creative wishes a hornets nest kicked, it often chooses me, because more often that not, I am faster than hornets!

it makes sense though, I was created as I am and a creative energy even if it is only known as "love" will have the ability to see what I can endure, and where I can best be of service.

 

So, in short I am in acceptance of being a Puke kicker, it still often occurs to the universe to use me in this way, and the story being shared with me turned out to be a highlight of a dreary sad weekend! it highlighted to me just how long, the Universe has "been aware" of me!  wow!

 

And for you, you can always pull this up and cast it out whenever you do some off the wall thing, that you just felt you "HAD" to do!

 

"Oops! Tool of god! Pardon" just passing, tool of the universe passing by, hold your bags of puke out to be kicked!

 

Growth, take it where you can!

 

Namaste

China reassigns 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in bid to fight pollution | The Independent

China has reportedly reassigned over 60,000 soldiers to plant trees in a bid to combat pollution by increasing the country's forest coverage.  A large regiment from the People's Liberation Army, along with some of the nation's armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts on the northern border to work on non-military tasks inland. The majority will be dispatched to Hebei province, which encircles Beijing, according to the Asia Times which originally reported the story. The area is known to be a major culprit for producing the notorious smog which blankets the capital city.

Good News: This Year's Monarch Butterfly Migration Is Larger Than We've Seen in Recent Years | Better Homes & Gardens

Every autumn, monarch butterflies migrate across the U.S., heading south (and in some cases, west) for the winter. They are one of the few butterfly species that makes such a long migration—it can be up to 3,000 miles, and they often travel in such large groups that they fill the sky with their orange-and-black wings and blanket vegetation when resting. But over the past two decades, their numbers have been steadily declining, to the point that this insect is being considered for the endangered species list. Since 1997, when an estimated 682 million monarchs swooped through the air, the population has dwindled as low as 25 million monarchs in 2014 before rebounding to 150 million in 2016. So when reports of this year’s migration seem to indicate more of these winged wonders than usual, it could be a sign that their populations are continuing to make a comeback.

New urban algae canopy produces as much oxygen as four hectares of woodland | The Plaid Zebra

An urban canopy created with algae has got people talking about the link between technology and environment. According to Gizmag, the bio-digital structure pumps a fluid with microalgae around a transparent shelter, which in turn produces shade, energy in the form of biomass, and an impressive amount of oxygen amounting to the equivalent of four hectares of woodland. When it comes to photosynthesis, microalgae organisms are ten times more efficient than large trees and grass. Buildings and architectural surfaces are efficient spaces to utilize this technology.
