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.

Why I love where I live

So I promised not to tell you all the heart aches and decision making process for what we were going to do with our life until we had a definite plan. And now we do. A few months ago we were in Brattleboro (VT) were playing at our favorite toy store when Kevin decided to go across the street to stop into the acupuncture center across the street to say hi. The acupuncturist wasn't there but he left his card. A few days later he got a call asking if he wanted a job a few days a week and he's been working there ever since, and gaining new days. So we've ordered the boxes and are starting to fill them.... god I hope this is are last move for a while. The move is a good one, that whole area seems more receptive to acupuncture and Kevin still has a small private practice that he'll keep going.

Until then we're packing up and enjoying the summer here. Luckily theres only one more month of commuting for Kevin (poor guy he hates driving and he's got an 80 mile daily commute).

By the way this is what we were doing last year.

congrats on the new move. i think your flexibility will help you in this venture. i am trying to be more patient and flexible myself in order to succeed at self employment. it is difficult at times, but i think it will all work out in the end.
i wish you were out here as well to help with the shop set up. here's hoping all my years in retail haven't been for nothing! :)

Congratulations on having a plan. It sounds like a great opportunity for Kevin. My sister is an acupuncturist in Nashville and has a very succesful practice. Seems it is a good area for it.
