Where I stayed
Ron and Alysia's
I had intended to hike out of here Tuesday morning of course, but I was told that I could be a help to my hosts in a few little capacities around the house, I gladly agreeded to stay a couple of days to help out. Well the ever present rain and the ever wonderful Phoenix Moon (R & A's 11 month old child) there have been a few snags to powering thru our list of projects
Like so many other times I have met intentional, creative folks in this community, I am meeting folks who are quite gifted musicians as well. Over and over I see a corrolation of free thinking and creative arts to the point of believing the are inherently combined, re-enforcing each quality in kind. This once again begs the question from me, "why do we remove funding for music and art while ensuring funding for sports in our school systems?". I get the popularity and "rah, rah" nature of this decision but it just seems a bit knee-jerk or short sighted to me.
OK, I will try to tie all this into what seems to be coming next for my journey. During this time here, I have been invited to help in the building of a strawbale building, and as I and Gyvonne are interested in alternative building methods, we have agreed to try and incorporated this into or journey. It should not be to hard to find a hike around our new destination and get some more shake-down walking in. Either way, I am excited about the twist in the journey, which I credit an open heart and mind for unfolding before me. I will be makeing my way down to Georgia to meet up with G, who I hope finds an interesting trail to follow. All I see are possibilities laid out before me. Blessings of Peace and Harmony.
