Hey Dez! You guys are sure doing great ! Im listening to the bootcamp podcast right now and its awesome!

Ive sent you a few bucks for helping me in amazing ways recently.  I want to fly out right now instead of Jan :) !!

Two of the previous boots are now involved in stewarding my land up by Tahoe, one living their full time, one helping him out.

The progress can be seen here - and some mini swales have gone in recently!

….. a glass house.. a ship with no corners.. learning to be okay with my inadequacies.. desiring, yet, to be improving and building my self image every single day.. each struggle a mere opportunity to grow into greatness.. we are not here for very long my dear friends.. life offers us many distractions in the form of comfort.. and the fullness of morning soon turns into a bleak of eve.. the opening of the day soon becomes the close.. too soon.. too soon.. insurmountable obstacles may likely arise.. but there is a way.. if fear drives, the windows of the house creep shut.. If love wields the helm, the ship is warp 7.. I’m talking about freedom.. the kind that endures through the simple discipline of routine and faith.. it’s not easy and probably not comfortable.. but it is light.. let’s not forget to be kind to the child inside the person..

….. this morning the ground was frozen walking across basecamp.. the winter chill upon us.. soon snow..
….. these days my words seem stifled.. is this what happens in community? Or is it a natural phase of my own becoming?.. I don’t yet know.. I can only keep on swimming..
