... grateful for two way conversation.. M hung out with me to celebrate sawmill success.. we chatted endlessly, meaningfully.. I was fed with more than sweet potato fries that night.. P meets me in a conversation like no one else in my life really does.. we talk about buckets of crazy and being our magnificent selves.. the food seems abundant here.. I just have to seek it out..

... grateful for quiet evenings, still warm from the day’s baking sun.. we milled lumber under the shade of a wonderful canopy setup.. drinking lots of water and spreading the skill of milling usable lumber from a fresh cut log (dried for a few months).. the opportunity to learn a skill seems to be one of the amazing fruits of Wheaton LabsBootcamp...
