There's only one picture of me at the first farm I worked on, Kearsarge Gore Farm in New Hampshire. Here it is, taken when I was 21:
I'm cleaning garlic. With the New Year and big changes around the corner, I think back to this beginning often. And I wonder, what instinct led me to that barn and that garlic, and ultimately to Butterbee Farm?
I like where my instincts have led me. And so, here's my New Year's Resolution: to trust my instincts. Less worry, less anxiety, less doubt. More mindfulness, thoughtfulness, and faith in my ability and experience.
What are your New Year's Resolutions? What new beginnings are you experiencing?
I wish you all a sprig of rosemary and a little faith.
