I make that promise to myself every time I heave a branch onto the burn pile, pick a log out to save for a project, or light our Sunday bonfire.
While we often burn more than once a week, on Sunday we're both there, in the mess of it together. The days when we work alone can be a blessing or a curse. Like much in life. I often enjoy the solitude of working this land alone, I feel myself getting to know the nuances of the landscape and am able to focus more on everything around me when I'm the only human. That said, it can be isolating at times & I love Sunday Burn Day.
In the last few weeks we have made enormous progress on this section of the farm.(Entryway/Pines) It feels amazing to see how close we are to starting big projects like the Barn Yard fence & breaking ground on the Barn!
It's true I miss the original barn, I fell in love with it the moment I stepped inside. So many hopes and dreams burst to life. But this new barn is different, more ours, more mine. We're designing & building it. That makes a huge difference. These new hopes and dreams are exponentially more vivid and exciting than my original ones. In the flames I see our progress, our hard work and dedication to this farm & each other. I see what we are working towards and finally after so many months, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. So grateful to be here.
