Five steps forward. Three steps backwards. Two steps forward. Five steps forward. Repeat. Despite the challenges we all face, we can all rest assured that we are making progress towards our intended destination, whatever that may be. Here on the farm we are seeding, (first tomatoes have sprouted!!), and prepping beds, and planting, and accounting, and planning, and cleaning, and organizing. And while much of this work makes us feel like we are sliding backwards, we are truly creating a new foundation from which we can reach to even higher goals. So we continue on, with diligence, grace, and peace, and a deep knowledge that all is well.
