Equinox adventuring. Took my boys to get a coconut from friends Christina and Eric. They cut local coconuts and make a rootical, traditional Kava Kava drink for the grown folk. Kava Kava is a powerful Hawaiian/Pacific roots drink that has an seriously calming effect on the body and mind. Its heavy on the liver, so you definitely should practice moderation...but it is a fine treat for Dad on a blazin hot equinox trek with a 4 year old and his baby brother. The larger scope of the days activity here is that our baby finally is getting to an age when he can strike out with dad a little more often and free the hands of Mom...the founding potter at Honest Works. Big up to you Mom!
The coconut water is a seriously refreshing drink, and way healthy too. In fact I have heard that during World War II, in the Pacific theater, the US forces were known to link a coconut I.V. direct to the bloodline of a wounded soldier to save his life if other supplies were unavailable. Amazing if its true. For me, save the IV and give me a little machete-top-straw-action, the taste is incredible.
This is my boy standing out front of Help Yourself Cafe ( organic food, monday farmers market ...helpyourselfcafe.com) on Fleming St. enjoying his malaysian sweet (aka the yellow ones).
Happy equinox. A potter stays tuned into to the earth's celestial cycles, its gonna get reeeeeaaaaaalll warm very soon.
Normal pottery classes resume tomorrow and we have a ton of fresh work rollin through. Watch out week, Im about to run right through ya.
