It is amazing,,,this is the only way I describe my feeling on these sweet potato plants growing at my house.

They are high in vitamin B6, full of vitamin C, contains vitamin D, iron, magnesium,  a good source of potassium and sweet-tasting for sure.

“Sweet Potatoes” by Shi Ping

Potatoes are sweet, potatoes are cute.

I am potatoes lover, I do grow you.

Looking at your growing rate, I do admire you.

This is the first time I grow you, so I call you

Prototype 1: Sweet potatoes.

Potatoes are delicious, potatoes are packed with vitamins,

Watering you each day, I do and thanks the sun,

Soon, you will be tasty to eat,

And you can go with yogurt, meat, cinnamon, spices, broccoli,

But wait, let me take you to the finest.

Everyone should like you.

My first step

The young poet Evmenis
complained one day to Theocritos:
“I have been writing for two years now
and I have composed just one idyll.
It’s my only completed work.
I see, sadly, that the ladder of Poetry
is tall, extremely tall;
and from this first step I now stand on
I will never climb any higher.”
Theocritos replied: “Words like that
are improper, blasphemous.
Just to be on the first step
should make you happy and proud.
To have come this far is no small achievement:
what you have done is a glorious thing.
Even this first step
is a long way above the ordinary world.
To stand on this step
you must be in your own right
a member of the city of ideas.
And it is a hard, unusual thing
to be enrolled as a citizen of that city.
Its councils are full of Legislators
no charlatan can fool.
To have come this far is no small achievement:
what you have done already is a glorious thing.”

– C.P. Cavafy

Journey and a potato farm

me

I wanted to start a website to record my journey, just as it is. My life path, my experiences, my dreams, thoughts, feelings… whatever may come up. But this is also my future, a wonderful potato farming that I may venture through. I am realizing more & more that it isn’t about the destination. In a way, I don`t  think there is one, because we’re always moving, always changing, & always flowing.

It’s about the journey. It’s about the road we travel on & the lessons we learn along the way. I have definitely taken a path less traveled by. And it has certainly made all the difference.

———————————————————————–

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel both,And be one traveler, long I stood,And looked down one as far as I could,

To where it bent in the undergrowth.Then took the other, as just as fair,And having perhaps the better claim,Because it was grassy & wanted wear,

Though as for that the passing there,Had worn them really about the same.And both that morning equally lay,In leaves no step had trodden black,

Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way,I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sigh,

Somewhere ages & ages hence;Two roads diverged in a wood & I- I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.
