I can’t believe how much time has passed since my last post. More and more I am realizing how fast life zooms by, and how events of the days that pass envelope my time and push many of my passions to the side. No doubt, life is busy.
Writing is a passion of mine. When I make the time to sit down and start writing, everything else around me kind of fades away. It is good therapy, and I find, especially in times of difficulty, writing becomes my escape. I want to write beyond that….I want to make the time to follow my passions. Some, I have no choice….if I didn’t allow time for those furry feet, I’d have a canine mutiny on my hands….this is a good reminder to me. My dogs are living, breathing passions that demand attention….my writing waits, silently until I say it is time. It is time!
So now that the silence is broken, there is much to write…much to catch up on. A lot has happened on this quasi homesteading-meets-digital-age journey of ours. It’s a mix of two worlds that bring an interesting flavor to life. The concrete, hyperbole world of Silicon Valley is so ever present in our thoughts, our viewpoints….but the world in which we actually live is heavy in nature, and simplicity. We have the option of making our lives complicated, technological, or green, rich in God’s creation. There is a merging of sorts, a need to find the balance….the debate…..homesteading, completely sufficient unto ourselves, or career focused with the ability to come home and enjoy nature in the evenings and on the weekends. The really big question……WHERE IS A GOOD CHINESE FOOD RESTAURANT AROUND HERE??? I have yet to find it…..the journey continues.
