comings and goings

Michele is a force for sure.  When we are here and Michele is here, all boats rise together.

Younger family went west for a 10 day boating date with western family, so, Michele headed south for the cool(er) hills of Sunswept Farm. We sometimes call ourselves the 3 robots, for you old scifi channel buffs,  commenting on the world as it passes by, and one soap in particular.

Michele got down here saturday night of the yoga retreat that was here last weekend in July with music and singing in the cool night air  here on the farm under the peaked lite tent.  For the final morning yoga Sunday, there were about 20 people here, michele included.  We teamed up for breakfast for the 25 yogs and massagers ( michele got one of these too), musicians and us. Mi’chele always helps with the program of getting the assistants into the kitchen makin with us.  We made lemon curd and maple scones for the lemon curd to go on. ummmmmm  our new french friend did great following the director of curd, michele..  (please laugh now)  we had lemon squeezing along with orange, hummus, home grown sausage patties and more.  So the moving this place into a more better hum is what happens when michele is here.  While sleeping well in the cool mountain nights and rising as we do, we got lots done.. we got to have a horse spa moment, where we took each horse, Joyti, Grace & Bob out to the front of the house, where michele had hot water, and horse shampoo, & scrubbers.  the horses had 4 hands scrubbing everywhere, itching everything, ears, chest, belly ( very dirty bellies).  each horse just stood there, didn’t move at all.  we had dropped the rope cause each was just in such pleasure mode, why move?

friend veronica came along a week later, with a tamale plan, something that happens here every now and then. something happens, something in the air, maybe it is break between summer session at ab tech and fall, so some have a more still moment. but long time buddy, veronica, AKA veronimale brought all the fixin’s and a friend to make tamales. To the corn and masa makin’s we added homemade  chicken stock and lots of butter, and some of our slow cooked pork for filling, along side of black beans and greens and a few more friends to help eat the moment.  that night we also met WWOOFers for the first time, young folk who go from farm to farm to help and to see how people do their selves, moving like a traveler through to >>?? some destination that seems to be mostly self defined.  that was lots of fun.  through the week and a half people seemed to come and go and come,  along side of picklin, and cannin’   we weeded and laughed a whole!!! lot. Michele is planning on being here for much of the summer 2011.. oh boy the circle , an arc is established with 3 or more…meghan ganser shared her thought that this land has it’s own dharma,, we circle in our way around this truth as co-owners creators here, ah let the cool breezes flow through as well.  bye michele with love and gratitude for the connection to the universe. lightning strikes here in the mountains, again. more to come
