"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Harmony Homestead Dispatch #12

A piece of an old syrup bottle I found when I was digging in the garden.

Gail with her pups (Maddy, Ophelia, and Grace).

A monarch (?) caterpillar I found in the garden and moved to a milkweed plant by the greenhouse.

Back to our favorite swimming-hole on the Poultney River.

Greg Marley teaches us about sustainable foraging for wild mushrooms at SolarFest.


Naturally, I can’t show you pictures from the very best part of my Vermont trip because I forgot to bring my camera. I went to see As You Like It with my friend Sierra—so much fun to see Shakespeare performed on the lawn of a stately old home, and it was such a treat to see my friend Tom playing Jaques—and then we stayed up late watching for shooting stars. We crammed a lot of fun (creek swimming, sloegin fizzes with dinner, Dorset farmer’s market) into my last twenty-four hours.

I’m home again now. Need to finish up my India blogging before we head off for Turkey in a couple weeks!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
