First Farmwarming

August 18th, 2010 § 0

I just hosted five old friends, some who’d crossed oceans to visit, at the farm for a long weekend.


It was a great time of porchsitting, beer drinking, can shooting, campfiring, and catching up.


The house glowed with all these bodies inside, and it felt great to finally open its doors wide to some of the people I love most in this world.


We ate the tomatoes and peaches and melons of summer. We watched hummingbirds on the porch, saw the mists swirl in the mountains, took in the local color on a gun-buying expedition, treked to a great brewpub, toasted mashmallows, melted ants, basked in dying firelight, and some urban dwellers slept the deep and quiet country sleep.


This summer’s gone too fast, and I’ve been working so much, that to just actually enjoy what I’ve been working so hard on was a great treat and a hopeful taste of the future. And for my visitors: Thank you all for coming, and for helping to connect one of my old lives to this new one. I know I’ve been talking about this farm dream for as long as I’ve known you, and to finally be able to share it in real life is incredible. You—and your beer—are welcome back anytime.
