Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog.  I’ve worn a lot of hats for the last 25 years.  My newest adventure involves exploring my land, its species, our interactions, and sharing what I learn.

I live with my family on 14 acres in Rockbridge County, Virginia.  We’ve been here 11 years.  During this time I’ve held two different jobs, gone back to school, helped with major renovations on our farmhouse, and lived abroad twice.  In winter 2012, I came to realize that life is going by too fast and that I am constantly resigning aspects of our property, Halcyon, to the ‘back burner’.

After a lot of thought, I decided to leave teaching, my latest endeavor, and begin a new adventure.  This blog is an attempt to blend two dreams of mine, writing and understanding the natural spaces around me.  I hope, through my quest, you too can find something to ponder or share.
