“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf. This fright complex is rooted in every individual.” ~Alfred Hitchcock

What Do You Stand For?

Are you ready for four minutes of FUN? To fully enjoy this post, click here on the arrow to listen to Some Nights.

What do a cardiologist, a highway patrolman and a pregnant momma all have in common? They are all taking a stand, right here on Feather & Nest. And how do a baseball pitcher, a jewelry artist and a pilot all relate to one another? They are all taking a stand, too. Beer brewers, bloggers and a bunch of great children? You guessed it: They all stand for something.

Prepare to smile.

And let us know what you stand for!

Farm to Table: Terrebonne, Oregon

You’ve seen the spreads in Bon Appétit: beautiful farm food, fresh from the vine, perfectly plated, with the visual freshness of nature’s bounty awakening your senses. They make you wish you were there. And they usually are in Italy. But local farm to fork events are popping up everywhere, and we were lucky enough to enjoy one right in Terrebonne, Oregon, The Longtable Dinner.

Have a listen here while you look.

The Longtable Dinner is a monthly event that Sarahlee Lawrence of Rainshadow Organics, Wendy DiPaolo of Willow Camp Catering and Rebecca Sokol started this past July.

Photo by Feather & Nest

Their purpose is to share this bounty of foods raised on Rainshadow Organic’s Farm.

Photo by Feather & Nest

With very few exceptions, all the food is grown on the farm. Occasionally they “import” some items, like Olive Oil from California. They also try to take advantage of local dairies and other locally grown products.

Photo by Feather & Nest

They serve their dinners at their Long Table, made from local Juniper, in the very fields the food is grown.

Happiness.

I Feel It In My Toes

Love is all around us.

Look around… around your neighborhood, your workplace, your own home. Sometimes something delightful happens, and there’s more love than you were expecting. In this case, it was ours for the taking, and we could take what we needed. Listen to The Troggs here: they will remind you that LOVE is everywhere. And then take what you need.

FREE: TAKE WHAT U NEED

Hope, grace, forgiveness, gratitude or wisdom.
What do you need?

Persistence, strength or inspiration?

Willpower, ingenuity or confidence?

Joy, peace or healing?

The photos are by Feather & Nest.

But the love is from our friend, Robin. If you tear off strength and hold it in your hand, you have strength. If you tear off courage, you have it. Thanks to Robin’s inspiration, anything anybody needed this week was right there waiting. Thank you for Trogg-ing the ‘hood, Robin! So whatever you need today, get it here. Take it.

Print, cut and tear. Take what you need.
