On balance and house stuff and magic

I haven’t talked much about my healing from my brain injury 2.5 years ago, but I’d like to make a dedicated post at some point. I continue to learn through my healing, but I wanted to touch on one concept today. Every time I go into my doc’s office...

Hydroponics and expansion

These microgreens, I tell ya. There were more than a few moments where I thought I couldn’t hang on to the business over the last year. First of all, they are finicky little buggers (which, despite the hassle, has given me lots of food for thought). Add to that...

A quick list.

It’s been almost two months since I wrote here, which I think might be a record since I started writing in this way to begin with- back when I was 14 and filled paper journals late at night. I have felt the absence of this space, although I can...

It’s only fear that keeps you locked in here.

This simple song knocked me back recently. So often it’s the simplest messages that shine for me over time. I like to think things are far more complicated than they really are- or I suppose things are...

Farming and things, Part 2

 

Go here for Part 1.

Oh for the love of eggplant!

I harvested the last of the eggplant and peppers from the hoop house almost two weeks ago when they were killed by frost. Most of the eggplants themselves were in really good shape, so I gathered what wasn’t damaged intent on storing/eating/selling what...

Let that be my vision

“Work hard, play mostly.” My little brother said those four simple words when he was 3 years old or so. Ever since, it’s been a staple in our family-quote repertoire. I’ve been invoking the power of that little saying lately. It feels perfect...

A new house with a spruce tree out back

It’s been about a month since my last post. Since the last update we have signed a lease and moved out of Jeff’s dad’s basement and into the top floor of a house, back in the heart of Ypsi where I need to be. Lindsay...

I wanted adventure…

I've been wanting to write here for days, but our circumstances change like the wind and I can't seem to get my bearings. I really love this space to write, not only for its therapeutic value, but also as documentation of our journey. I love going back an reading...
