“This, then, is the extravagant landscape of the world, given, given with pizzazz, given in good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.” –Annie Dillard

 Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. // Wu Men Hui-k'ai (Rainy spring morning at #rollingridgestudyretreat)
 #Rollingridgestudyretreat has been buzzing with visitors and activity on this first weekend in Spring! The weather was perfect for the mushroom workshop, hikes, picnics and a few chores (like preparing a space for a new flock of chickens with the help of some friends from Circle Community! )
 This weekend the Rolling Ridge Foundation began the horse logging portion of the Forest Stewardship project. They've hired Lars, who works with draft horses to haul logs out of the forest as an alternative to large industrial machinery. #rollingridgestudyretreat
 #tbt to 1979 at #rollingridgestudyretreat ... A warm, sunny picnic with friends looks rather idyllic compared this brisk winter day!

“You are in this time of the interimRolling Ridge Study Retreat
Where everything seems withheld.
The path you took to get here has washed out.
The way forward is still concealed from you.
The old is not old enough to have died away
The new is still too young to be born.”


-John O’Donohue
