And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. And God saw that it was good. –Genesis 1:9
That verse has been stuck in my head since November.
Outside, I’ll point to our little community yard in front of our townhouse and say, “This hasn’t been dry since we moved in.”
When it’s not covered in snow or ice, it’s a wet, muddy patch of grass. I’m ready for sunshine. For warm air. For dry ground.
Last Saturday, I got my wish. The sun blazed in the sky without a cloud in sight. I was so happy and giddy and overwhelmed with possibilities I wasn’t sure what to do. Should I bike? Rollerblade? Find an outdoor court and play tennis? In the end, I opted for a long walk. I simply wanted to let the fresh air clear my mind.
Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk. Walk.
I could’ve stayed on the trail forever.
The day came to a close, and by Sunday morning it was raining again. Our patch of grass was wet and muddy. But there are more warm, dry days ahead. I can feel them. And I’m ready to welcome them with open arms.
There are two types of bald men – those who willingly to have their hair cut short and those who unwillingly suffer from the condition as their issue is genetic in origin. Male pattern baldness is a condition wherein men who have inherited the genetic trait develop hair loss that progresses into baldness over time. The problem with this is that some men are particularly fond of their overall appearance with a full hair on their head; the types who are embarrassed about their appearance as they slowly grow bald. Sadly, there is really nothing they can do as their condition is embedded in their genetic code.
Male pattern baldness has always been an issue for many men. This is the reason why toupees have been invented. Although there are many hair loss treatment products in the market that are currently being sold, none of them are really effective in treating the issue. They more of like just delay the progression of the hair fall issue that occur. This was in the past. These days, the most effective way of treating male pattern baldness is through the use of Propecia. What this hair loss treatment drug does is that it inhibits the creation of the hormone that is the root cause of the hair loss issue.
There are three factors required to trigger male pattern baldness – age, genes, and hormones. What Propecia does is that it acts on the hormone trigger part wherein it prevents the creation of dihydrotestosterone, the hormone that makes the hair follicles grow thin. Controlling the production of this hormone is actually very effective in stopping the progression of hair loss as the hair follicles are able to recover and grow back to being healthy. Sadly, those hair follicles that have completely died from thinning can no longer be recovered. Nevertheless, through the use of Propecia, you will be able to stop hair loss from progressing and thus not turn out becoming bald.

When we lived in California my husband and I had two bamboo plants – one on our coffee table and one in our kitchen. We had an indoor ivy plant above a corner piece in the living room. And we had a peace lily in a large flowerpot by our front door.
We enjoyed our plants. They livened up our space and added a splash of color.
We even named them: Lucky, Frogger, Stan and Lily.
But we weren’t very organized about feeding them. Half the time we presumed the other person had watered them when in reality neither of us had (we’d check and then panic because their soil was extra dry). Other times we assumed the other person had forgotten to take care of the plants, so we’d both wind up watering them and then over-saturating their soil.
We had a confusing schedule with our dog too. Some days we decided to give her one scoop of food in the morning and another scoop at night. Other days we decide to give her nothing in the morning and two scoops at night. And everyday we’d have a discussion about who fed her, when we fed her, and whether she needed to be fed again. When we moved from California we gave our plants away but kept the dog. Our daily discussions over the feeding routine of our adorable mutt have continued.
We’ve often said to each other: “We need to come up with one schedule for the plants/pets and stick to it.” But no plan we thought of worked very well. Right about the time I was making the switch to Clean Eating. I read an article that suggested feeding your pets and plants before you prepare your own meals.
In other words, serve others before serving yourself.
What a great idea. After all, when I was growing up the golden rule at the dinner table was Offer the food dishes to others before taking it yourself. One summer I worked at a camp where we actually served the person to our right – I would put a piece of chicken, a spoon of broccoli, and a roll on my neighbor’s plate. Then that person would serve the person to her right, and so on…
Feeding pets and plants before meals would not only keep all the living creatures in our household on a regular schedule, it would help us transition into the intention of mindful eating. By stepping back and taking care of the needs of others first, we are reminded of how much has been given to us: our health, our bodies, and the food we are about to put inside it.
Peace & Blessings.
