I got a new job (well, something in addition to the regular after school art program job that I have and adore). it is a very, very part time (once a week for 3 or 4 hours) and very, very temporary (until about late June) gig. it is one that I love though. one that gets me excited and fills my cup in many, many ways. I am essentially helping the kind folks who run this small farm at a nearby summer camp get things set up and ready for the summer. I am weeding and planting and making beds. I am talking to the turkey and hauling wheelbarrow loads of mulch and compost. it is time I can spend doing what I love and getting lost in my own thoughts or in the meditative motions of farm work. also- in addition to the very little paycheck I'll get from it, I also get paid in things like strawberries and snap peas, all the greens I can eat, and sweet time with the farm dog, London.
no way could I turn this one down.
