Ben playing music and trucks with Reina (6) and Kiran (3)


i hope the reader-ship hasn't threatened mutiny in the wake of my brief absence (get all the nautical references?? eh? eh? oh stop...)

i just returned from a 5-day road trip with my friend Ben across Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, and West VA. we spent our time visiting intentional communities along the way, working on farms, building houses, playing harmonica and guitar and drums and playing with kids, making cookies, meeting religious goat-milk enthusiasts and fending off their vigorous proselytizing, crossing rivers, surgical removal of sea ticks, going to the beach, flying kites, drinking chocolate beers, sleeping under stars and atop of cars in the forested mountains of VA/WV, and lots and lots of swerving driving and wavering navigational skills.

but, all told, it was a lot of fun, and a great way to see the country! i recommend it.

anyway, i'm tired from all the heat and the work, so i'm going to take a nap. i'm running a half marathon in an hour, i'll let you know how that goes!
