I was hoping to update at least every thousand, I am rather overdue seeing as we just went over 3k. This is way cool. What else can I say?
This is not the first time I have had people perform great acts of kindness on my behalf. I find myself pondering “what do you say in return?”Honestly how many times can one say thank you?
I have found the best thing to do is get really excited and filled with more gumption and drive to make whatever you are striving for happen in the most amazing way possible. Four Acre Farm is going to be so cool.
It is super humbling to see all the support coming from friends pushing this video for us. It is also just as exciting to have people support us whom we have never met.
This kind of almost unimaginable support reminds me of my times on the road tour cycling.
Mr. Kevin Kelly illustrates this wonderful phenomenon in his essay The Universe Is Conspiring to Help Us. If you have a moment you should give it a listen.
“When the miracle flows, it flows both ways. With each gift the threads of benevolence are knotted, snaring both giver and recipient. I've only slowly come to realize that good givers are those who learn to receive with grace as well. They radiate a sense of being indebted and a state of being thankful. As a matter of fact, we are all at the receiving end of a huge gift simply by being alive. Yet, most of us are no good at being helpless, humble or indebted.”
As far as I am concerned, spring is here in northern Vermont so I’m sure for the majority of you the outdoors are becoming more favorable to t-shirts and shovels.
Chew some dirt and be well.
