spent my early 20’s travelling India, Nepal, China, and Tibet alone in the mountains, sometimes weeks on end in the Himalayas. I was gone for a year. Even with all the experiences of being smuggled in the back of a jeep into Tibet, nothing could prepare me for the absolute wild ride that farming would take me on.

May the turning of the seasons & the turning of the leaves save us.
May we be saved by the worms, the beetles & the microbes turning the soil.
May we be saved by the turning of vegetation into compost
& the turning of compost into rich soil.
May the turning of seeds into plants & the turning of flowers

& the trees into forests.
May the scurrying, foraging, pouncing & lumbering of the animals save us.

In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way”
