Healthy living, healthy parenting, healthy gardening. One Family's approach to off grid living.


I watch with childish glee
perched up on my mountain as the school bus rolls past
without slowing
my 3 sit, snuggled together
playing video games
while the genny’s warm hum
bakes paleo muffins
the skies clear
and here
huddled in the old growth
I am the pupil
privy to lessons on humble sincerity
witness to the secrets
of The Brotherhood.

    Love this. I feel the same way when I am snuggled up on the sofa with my boys and we see school kids walk past our front window to catch the bus.
