Chicks and Hoes

What’s up guys! Hope everything is going sweelllll on your side of things. Just popping in to drop a line and update on the up and coming events of Michael. Woo! Adjusting to life in Canada on a farm has been a trek for sure. I have absolutely fallen in love with Bee’s family. They are so much fun! ahh you have no idea, but maybe you do! Perhaps I will get some pictures of the events and happenings of family gatherings because they are just so exciting. Haha!

Anyways, we have new life on the farm! 4 baby chicks (no new hoes though, that was just for fun) The little black one is sunshine and the one behind her i believe is Marble? Marble might be the one looking at you in the picture. And the one in the back with his head poked up (we think its a rooster) is Hope. Ah and whichever on is not Marble is Ducky! 😀 Hope was the first born and we were hoping for more 😉 So now we have baby chicks to take care of and they are just so cute. They just go meep meep chirp mee meep and eat and poop alot. You know, baby stuff.

Ive been working more on my meditations and focusing on myself quite a bit. The working on the farm I’ve still been doing tons but took a step back about one day a week to really focus in on my Self and get my sacred circle setup and get to work on my own progress. A story in itself to unfold! more details coming as the days do.

The farm work itself is nice. We are getting so much done and we just finished our garlic harvest. All the garlic hanging in the barn is just so beautiful. It really has a special type of energy. I’ll get you guys some photos of this too. It’s so feely. And it also makes you think of vampires when you see so much garlic hanging hahah. But ya, farms doing splendid. This saturday we go to market again and do some vegetable salespeople stuff. It should be fun and our weekend is paaacked but I’ll save pictures for that and use less words.

The opportunities opening up are big and small. On the small side I’m waiting for a response from a Vipassana organization about 4 hours away in Egbert (or Barrie…something or other) to go to. Ive been meaning to go into Vipassana but it’s taken awhile to manifest a space where I am secure in all ways and also able to take 10 days away. I had the opportunity 2 other times in the last year but did not take advantage but I am now full steam ahead. I, myself, am absolutely amazed at the increase in energy and motivation I have to do things and get out in the world and experience it. I canoed a canoe a week ago and that was so fun! Just wanted to pop that in there.

I suppose the big things include looking towards the future and what the winter holds for Bee and I. We are perusing different options in regards to regenerative farming and possibly regenerative agriculture but the intensive vegetable farming again…im not so keen on. We are more interested in the food forest aspect of land and so thats where our sights lie. On Sunday we have an interview with Jim and Fiona who are on a piece of land in Portugal in need of volunteers. They are growing 1 or 2 food forests on the property with regenerative agriculture and a minimalist mindset. I used to want to be a minimalist to work a job and see how much money I can save but I actually just feel much more whole using less than the amount that my western consumption oriented mind is used to using. I went from 20-50+gallons of water (American showers use about 2.1 gallons/min) for a shower to 1/4th of a 5 gallon bucket.  Pretty awesome.

Still playin guitar, still drawing pretty things, and we’re writing a book! I am so at peace but also so busy and I would like to find a better serving balance for that. I am trying to now allow myself to be so stimulated in the physical environment but I will admit it is difficult with so much going on. We will work together on this as I am sure everyone is seeking more balance in their lives ❤ Grant Cardone says “Fuck balance, I want to blow my life up!” …like blow it way up and be super successful and sell 100,000 houses instead of 10 in a year, things like this. But I feel like when you get to the place you feel you need to be you still will seek that balance. Blowing it up is fine if you’re not where you want to be and I’m not talking about Ferraris and mansions…just getting out there and living life. It can take a lot. But I can tell you… it takes more mindset than money.

Peace out  ✌☮

off again, off again

Off again, off again…with the wind,  oh with the wind… with a grin, oh with a grin… off again… I’m off again…

I am off! Ah such a tumultous series of events these last 4 months being home in Boise! I am greatful for all those I was able to see ❤ I think it was worth it. I did some good things and focused on strengthening my bond with my family. I think it is definitely stronger but my family was definitely ready for me not be in the house anymore. Haha!

I cant blame them though I must say that I am very ready to be out of there as well. You don’t realize what its like to have no space to your own until it begins affecting! Anywho, as I sit here in the San Franscisco airport I am again finding my mind gears turning. It was as if everything sorta shut down and stopped when I got back home. In all honesty I went through a range of emotions from depression to ecstacy and it’s certainly been an adjustment. I am also learning that I don’t necessarily have any way to tell people how to be themselves haha. You know? I could be writing about travelling and going out and doing things but maybe thats not necessarily right for you. It’s entertaining to read still ;D

I plan to start implementing some video blogging into my blog so me and my darling Bee will be able to keep you guys all updated on the farm life! The people who own the land are talking with us about converting the farm from sustainabole (which it is currently moving towards) to regenerative which means the farms existence actually gives back and heals the land. How cool! Why are we not learning these things? So anyways I will be creating an instagram for Bee and I so that we can use it to keep a steady stream of information and education and the goal will be trying to take pieces of this regenerative farming and see how we can shrink down, make it easy and get people to start implementing into their lives, into their backyards.

Ah it will be sooo cool guys! stay tuned 🙂
