Hi. Yeah, we’re still here

Hello all, surprise!  Yeah, you are still subscribed to a mostly non-posting blog.  I know this goes against all Rules of Social Media, but I’m kind of a rule-breaker anyway, so there ya have it. I’ve been a lot of places in the past several months, and probably could have posted more, but I was out living life instead of blogging about it.  Mostly the trips and days were good, full of promise, with a lot of laughs.  Other times I’ve wandered restlessly, my truth sort of unsettled in me, waiting to root, like those times when a seed finally blossoms into a flower but looks...

Scared and sacred are spelled with the same letters. Awful proceeds from the same root word as awesome. Terrify and terrific. Every negative experience holds the seed of transformation. –Alan Cohen   Hello beautiful souls!  I wanted to do some updates about the goings on around here, especially about the retreats.  Many of you are asking about them, so this seems like the best way to do it. First, yes– all of the spots for the New Mexico retreats are full, at least for this year.  We will probably do a larger, longer group retreat next year in Abiquiu, NM, with the option...

A Declaration of Self Care

Hello all!  This is a wonderful post originally from Mara Glatzel.     I love this, I preach this, I believe this and I wanted to pass it along.  Allow yourself to work with yourself today, and be gentle with you.  We are all we have, sweet friends, and we are enough.  You are enough.   There is enough today…enough time, enough money, enough love, enough breath.  So for just a second, relax your shoulders.  Take a deep breath and allow that Calm Voice to whisper encouragement in your ears.   There is only now, so deepen into the moment and allow yourself to Be Here Now.  You are worth...

Hello all! First, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who stopped by for the Sustainable Yard Tour.  I think we had about 100 or so people here, and a good time was had by all.    We met a lot of other garden geeks and seed savers, as well as a great number of local foodies and just all around cool people.   We were also able to connect with Andy from the International Institute, about the cool project they are doing, called the Global Farms Initiative. The International Institute Global Farms Initiative is an agriculture-based career training program for refugees with two training locations:...

Getting There

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. ~~Ralph Waldo Emerson Hello all 🙂 I was talking with some folks over the weekend about the paths we walk…how we think the path we are on will lead to a certain place, but part of the journey is accepting when it wanders into other areas.  Staying on the path and getting there aren’t necessarily the same thing, but probably all part of the same path.  It reminded me of the wonderful poem by David Wagoner, so I thought I’d post it.  We’ve all earned this ” worn-down, hard,...
