Good Bye Washington
We said our farewells this morning to our good friends at Highwater Farm in Mt. Vernon. I feel very good about our time there and was sorry to leave, it went by so quickly! But there is more to learn on this journey and we are looking forward to seeing more of the west coast. The last week or so have been a continuation of the weeks prior and there is not much more to report besides sharing with you again that being in a field for a few hours a day brings a lot of peace to my mind. I have also begun an altered perception of how this world works. More people need to work on farms. All the folks who say they love their organic food should go cultivate the fields from where the kale grows. It will give you a better understanding of your place in the world. No one 'grows' food. As a mother i know that i don't make the babies that i carry beneath my heart. Their creation took place at the birth of the world, and while i am apart of that, it is not from me. The same is true for the miracle of food. It does not come from a farmer but from a tiny seed that contains the mystery of the world. Farmers are stewards of the land, the midwife helping to bring forth and encourage abundance. In a way just as the mountains at glacier made me realize how small i am in the world these tiny seeds make me realize that i am only a blowing thought in the mind of creation...traveling through the world to help create and destroy as the need arises. In other words...i am humbled. We are now on the train traveling south to oregon to go work on a vineyard for a couple of weeks. We will be living in our tent and i am happy to report we were able to return our punctured air mattress and i have faith that we will not be on the ground every morning! The boys seem to be OK leaving behind their new friends and are looking forward to this new adventure. Keeping positive thoughts that we travel without complications. Until the next post please be well! Namaste~ Nicole G.
