Are we human? Or are we dancers?

Got back tonight from The Hills Food Frontier’s evening watching the documentary made by The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance entitled “Fair Food” … lots to say. Lots to think about.

It seems friends, our Food System is not just broken, it is killing us. Our farmers are leaving farms in droves because they cannot make farming work in the current food production system. The situation is so far from good, that our farmers are more than twice as likely to commit suicide than a member of any other profession at the moment.

Our food production processes, our food industry is far from fair, regenerative or sustainable. We may have lost personal power to a lack of understanding and to complacency or believing ‘someone else has it covered’ but we still have and will always have the power of choice. We can choose to take back our power, at any time. To hear how others have done, just that and find out more information check out The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance’s site and this clip from the doco …

As I was driving home with Clangers, thinking about all ‘the trouble’, I heard the words of “Human” wafting in to my befuddled mind on the wind, blown in from the dreaming … also, briefly – in other news I won the raffle.

Not sure why, but this often happens. Good Times.

Human

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You’ve gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we’re receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer

You’ve gotta let me know

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Are we human or are we dancer?
Are we human or are we dancer?
