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. David Orr from "Earth in Mind"

Our New Home
Just a quick note while in the midst of packing and unpacking. So far we love everything about our new home. Especially the kitchen, the fenced backyard, the light, the shed/studio. Gas prices are killing us and causing us to stuff the car to the brim each trip. Luckily Grandma and Grandpa watched Alder all day Saturday and Sunday so we could move some really big things. Perhaps a moving truck would have been a good idea, except that would have meant erasing one life before starting the next and with a toddler that's near impossible. For right now we're spending a few nights in each house as needed.
We really don't have much choice about how we move right now, we don't have access to a truck so it's load by load. Luckily Kevin has a client in Bennington who wants to get treated anytime he's around so she's paying for our gas.
I hope everyone out there is having a great August, it's my favorite month (actually the August September cusp is)
