WORDS OF WISDOM FROM ANCESTORS GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER: A PAMPHLET "HELP FOR THE HARD TIMES" COMMISSIONED BY BOOKER T. WASHINGTON. 1916.













WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I REMEMBER ASKING MY MOTHER, WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE DURING THE DEPRESSION OF THE 1920'S. SHE TOLD ME HER PEOPLE WHERE NOT AFFECTED BY IT MUCH, BECAUSE THEY LIVED ON A FARM AND THEY ATE WELL EVERY DAY.

EVEN THOUGH I WAS NOT RAISE ON A FARM, I ALWAYS HAVE VALUED THE SOIL AND MAINTAINING THE RICH MINERALS IN IT TO GREW FOOD FOR A BALANCED LIFE ON THIS PLANET.

SO... WHILE DOING RESEARCH ON GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER AND HIS WORK AT THE TUSKEGE INSTITUTE, FOR THE EXHIBIT (RE) POSSESSED, I CAME ACROSS THIS PAMPHLET THAT BOOKER T. WASHINGTON COMMISSIONED GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER TO DEVELOPE AND WRITE. I THOUGHT THIS INFORMATION WOULD BE VALUABLE TO HOMEMAKERS AROUND THE WORLD TODAY, AS WE ALL GO THROUGH THIS TEMPORARY ECONOMIC "HARD TIME"

I PLAN TO FOLLOW THIS ADVICE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER BY GROWING VEGETABLE IN MY WINDOWS, (I THINK IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL & HEALTHY) AND WHAT EVER ELSE I CAN DO IN THE CITY TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY DIET.

I WILL CONTINUE TO RESEARCH THE ART OF (RE) POSSESING A HUMANE LIFESTYLE FOR THE EXHIBIT AND WHAT EVER ELSE I CAN FIND ON THE SUBJECT OF THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SUPERNATURAL LIFESTYLE.... DO'NT WORRY... WHAT EVER I FIND, I WILL SHARE...

  3. Outstanding! I've been following your blog for a few months.

    I admire your consistency in blogging and have ALWAYS been knocked out by your GENIUS ever since I landed in NYC almost 23 years ago.

    My dream is to work with you some day. I'd love to get an email address for you.

    Peace and love,
