A piece of land

September 17, 2012

We have bought our first lifetime warranty tools. A fork and a spade. They are made of beautiful wood, with metal that peels itself along the wood in exactly the right diameter. We shall build a yurt. Or a straw bale house. And today I have read about working horses, and how much they drink. We must always make sure our horse will have enough water about, and lots of places to graze with new herbs and grass on the edge. We will make slow, resourceful decisions. We will breathe fresh air when we wake up in the morning. We will still hold each other’s hands when we fall asleep. Every flower, every vegetable and fruit planted on the way will contribute to finding and growing this place together – for us and for the generations that will follow, still digging with the lifetime spade. I love you so. Anne
