The winter has settled in all around
but I find myself so incredibly warmed.

sowing and reaping

My little plot is a hustlin' and a bustlin'. Every stage of life accounted for.

I packed up a pile of books and a couple change of clothes and took the ferry to a familiar place. 3 days filled with simple sensory pleasures and two of my favorite people to enjoy them with. In the riches of island nature I finally heard what He was trying to tell me.

Is this my weakness
or is this my strength?

three sisters

A little experiment in Pataskala...companion planting as the Native America's did: corn, beans and squash. It's not working out so well for us, but it sure is a beautiful, tangled world in there. I never know what creature I'll find or forgotten bean I'll trip over.

I've been inquiring of where I should be investing my time, energy and thought. No answers yet. But I do have something new to make for the packages I send.

coming home


rend your heart
and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God
for he is gracious and compassionate,

slow to anger and abounding in love,

I was swallowed in
questions of light and truth
hope and peace
strength and striving
death and pain
morals and simplicity.
Where do these paths lead?
How do you follow their trails?
I took my leave.
Too many questions that can’t be answered.
After sometime, I felt a stirring
That spoke of faith and trust.
And also of my smallness.
And also of brokenness and confusion.
It asked of me to come back
To what I knew before
The doubt settled in.
I responded in acceptance,
of everything I don't know.

through the apple tree
were two beloved to me souls
writing letters
