The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Costa Rican pipe dreams

Maggie past and present"Come right on over," I said.  "But be prepared --- I may not want to see you in the morning."

No, I wasn't setting up a one night stand.  I was inviting my sister to the farm to leaf through our journals, photo albums, and sketchbooks from our Costa Rican adventure a decade ago.  (And being realistic about my introvert tendencies that consider house guests and fish bad after about five hours.)

I don't want to be too specific, because it's summer and a bad, bad, bad time to take on new writing projects.  But I'm currently fired up to  summarize the highlights of our past journey on my Clinch Trails blog.  I'll let you know if it turns out to be anything more than a pipe dream, but for now, Maggie and I are enjoying the music.
