We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

39 Days Alder Turns 1

One year ago today I might someone for the first time. It was two am and here in the same room that I am writing this sitting in a tub (horse trough) Alder Joyce came into my life. I can hardly remember that vermix covered baby. How much peace and balance you have brought to my life. In one year you have taught me so much about the world and myself. You truly are my Tree of Joy. This Mama is honored to be experiencing everyday with you. Who knew there was a love this strong?

I thought I might put his birth story here but it is seven pages typed. If anyone is really dying to read it I can make it available.

Congratulations on the first year. Mine is almost 8! It is hard to believe it has gone so quickly.
