Slow & Steady…

The day after the Drum Circle, I wanted to go back to The Light Center in Black Mountain. Well, the GPS took me through Charlotte St. There’s a Farmer’s Market in the Public Works parking lot…which I had heard of from the herb farmer at Wildwood Herbal Farm. Not expecting to see it on this particular drive, I pulled in and it was at the end of the market day, so everyone was packing up. Continue reading

Those Drums, those drums ! They’re saying…

The Asheville Drum Circle is held every Friday from 6 to 10 pm. It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it again in a few weeks.

What happens now?…

I had finished my morning farm duties and headed towards Asheville, to finish unloading the trailer.  My intention of moving up here, was twofold. One to focus on finding property for the retreat, and two to continue following the leads down the rabbit hole. (Which reminds me of one of my favorite songs by Kes The Band: Stress Away {I hope you’re seeing a common theme here})

The trip to Madison County…

A little back story…

Back during my “ponder and plan” phase, one of the things I was pondering on was a date to make my move to the Western North Carolina (WNC) area. I had made prior arrangements to stay with my friend and her family in Weaverville. Well two things happened within one day of each other that confirmed the move date…August 29th.
