Blue Rock Station

Isn’t that a handsome rooster among all those adoring chickens? I met some interesting people today on my trip to Blue Rock Station. Stewards of our natural resources. They were once executives who traveled the world and could have settled anywhere, but chose instead to come home, back to Ohio. Their house is known as an earthship, built of discarded tires and old cans and then covered adobe style with our regions natural clay, it is a marvel of energy efficiency. But that wasn’t what I found coolest about the trip today. It was such a joy to see two people pursuing their interests in everything from nearly extinct chickens, to heirloom gardening to recycling of everything from barn wood to tin cans.

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
