Last summer Kurtis and I had a wonderful trip to Northern California, camping a bit along the coast and visiting our friends at Wildforest Sanctuary, where we'd lived and worked in 2010-2011. Back then I gardened and took care of the animals, while Kurtis built a barn out of locally sourced materials (we milled the lumber ourselves, and he built this almost entirely solo and by hand!). It was so wonderful to be back in this magical space, where Melinda and Karl live off the grid with goats, gardens, chickens and an evolving bunch of helpers in the redwood forest. This place and its creatures will always be very special to me. I think the photos speak for themselves.
I use this song for everything, but whatever. It's perfect. Press play.
