Monday Words: John Lennon | The Fresh Exchange

Share:

There are a lot of political opinions these days. Many of these thoughts come out of fear. Some come out of desire for simplicity. No matter where the opinions surface from the conversation is loud. For a minute before this conversation only grows louder in our country throughout this year, I wanted to feel as if I stepped into a silenced room and remember these words from John Lennon:

“You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…”
Political opinion aside, I hope at some point peace and unity can happen. Though we all have varying opinions I hope more than anything for understanding of one another even if we choose not to accept another’s truth as our own. So call me a dreamer today as I separate my brain from the ever present loud hum of this political season to hope and wish for something that feels far from a reality. Maybe one day. Maybe one day.

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
