Prabhupada Village

Yesterday Ken and I made a visit to Prabhupada Village, a 360-acre village of Hare Krishna devotees about 8 miles north of Acorn Abbey. They all live simply and close to the land. Many of them farm and are excellent farmers. In many ways, they live much as the rural people of this county lived up until 50 years ago. The village has been there for 20 years.

    what great neighbors! I often wonder where the enlightened people are in my rural neighborhood. Ran into a neighbor at the gas station last nite – he asked me if I was bothered by wild dogs. I didn’t know how to respond, and he said there were coy dogs around – half coyote, half dog – they looked like coyotes and sounded like coyotes. He had been trying to shoot them. Um, if they look and sound like coyotes, how do you know… or what makes you think… whatever.

    Spotted a snowy owl in my neck of the woods, southern Illinois. I’m sure you’ve heard about how they are traveling further south this year. It was spectacular!! Also saw a flock of pelicans returning far too early to their summer habitat – not good.

    Nature is confused … and we gardeners are confused along with nature.

    As for the Hare Krishnas, it’s good to know they’re there. That’s one reason I’m where I am — in hard times, one wants to be around farmland and people who know what to do with it.
