Time Slips Away

Five years since my last post. So much has happened, I feel like bullet points are the best way to catch up:

- Bill finished the Organic Farmer Training Program at Michigan State University;
- We gave our big, beautiful (expensive) house in the city back to the bank and  leased a house and land to farm on just outside of town;
- We started our business and have been able to keep a CSA going, go to a few farmer's markets and sell to one wholesale account;
- Our son died in 2014. I quit my job and stayed drunk and in bed for 8 months, then got a new job traveling and making more money than I ever have before;
- All the kids that once lived with us have moved on to bigger and better things;
- Bill & I bought a farm with an old farmhouse on it and we are doing the damn thing!

When I started this blog all those years ago, I didn't realize that my life was already in motion toward becoming something so different I hardly recognize it myself. If I'd known, would I have done anything different?

I don't know.

So, I'm going to try to write here again. So much of my mental energy and focus lately has been on the horribleness that seems to surround me. The farm, though we've only been here 5 months, is home. Every time I plant a tree, or just play in the dirt, I feel more and more connected to this land and the history on it. I want to remind myself of that connection more regularly.

Pictures coming soon!
