Please, Do NOT Support Thrasher's Wheat

Support Family Farmers & Farm Aid

That's right. Please, we ask that you do NOT support Thrasher's Wheat at this time.

Support Comfort + Mercy. And always support Love and Only Love.

We here at Thrasher's Wheat are just fine. Thrasher & Thrashette have all the essentials that we need and would prefer you to direct any contributions to your local organizations until the CV-19 crisis subsides. We can also factually report that we have zero cases in our household, zero in our neighborhood, zero reports from colleagues, friends and their extended families across multiple continents. Nor any TW readers or any reports via Rust/HH communities. Just maybe rusties are just the lucky ones?

After offering comfort, mercy and love, we suggest you support your local groups and national groups such as Farm Aid, which help keep farmers growing food for our families.

Also, try and support your local musical groups, venues, and staff and their fund raising, if you can.

Remaining cautiously optimistic that we will all break on thru to the other side.

The Unfurling of The Spring Ferns @ TW HQ

It's Spring, the time of re-birth and renewal. A new season for growth.

So don't spread fear. Turn off the news and build a garden. Share love and only love.

This too shall pass... as we have always seen. Stay Strong. Stay Positive.


ps - The angels of Comfort & Mercy are maneuvering into place. (Obviously, we see this as a positive force and should only be construed as such in the context of global humanitarian aid.)

Just finished watching and listening to Down By The River from Young Shakespeare at NYA, and was completely transfixed by Neil’s vocals. This performance is a remarkable example of a artist truly in the zone, and you can feel it in your soul when that happens.

Music has always been my co conspirator throughout my life, and is responsible for most of what I know, and how I think. Music is a healer and a educator, as well as a pure form of entertainment. During these difficult days I have aloud music to keep me grounded as I navigate the challenge of processing what has been happening around this beautiful world of ours. Knowing that so many people are suffering, not only from the virus but with the emotional effects of something so completely out of our control.

The one thing that we can all do to help the situation is doing nothing. Stay at home and keep your distance. Usually when troubles arrive, we take action, and look for tangible things we can do to help, but with this virus we are told to stay home and wait. This can take a real toll on one’s nervous system, creating anxiety and depression and a sense of helplessness. If anyone reading this is feeling this way I encourage you to turn to your favorite music to get through this. The healing power of music should never be underestimated and if you go to NYA right now and listen to this perfect version of Down By The River you will understand what I mean. Tap into Neil’s voice and close your eyes and let the melody carry you. You have the opportunity to experience the power of music to heal your heart and soul right now.

Peace 🙏

Dan - wonderful and timely words and thoughts Dan.

We so much appreciate your contributions to our little safe space out here on the fringes.

We're hoping that you and yours are coping peacefully in the new normal.

While we have been saying we'll be fine for the past few weeks, months, etc., we do need to clarify here.

Obviously as the #BigShift rolls along (as predicted and planned here), there will be stress and complications.

The Old Systems is shutting down. The shutdown is not over. But will be soon.

Once shutdown is complete, the #BigShift will commence. (Again, check older posts if this makes no sense whatsoever.)

To be perfectly clear and frank, a system re-boot will occur that will be disruptive for many. Especially those who are unprepared and caught off guard. We know that the rustie community is very dialed into what is about to go down.

There will be shocking surprises, so brace yourself.

All together we are strong, b/c: "We're The Ones We've Been Waiting For"

ps - Dan, btw, your comments and contributions here are worth more to us than silver & gold.

Thank you Thrashers, I’m glad to be part of this community

Peace 🙏
