Bzorks is how we arrived at Dreamsong where we cocreate our abode . . . we being seven humans, one dog, and a flock of chickens . . . within a hollow that has many names, surrounded by creaking trunks, swaying branches, and whispering leaves. While we’ve been here we’ve planted fruit trees and formed a garden, where we sometimes grow vegetables, berries, herbs, and flowers, and othertimes they grow themselves. We live and learn together from whatever lessons each day provides.
When we tend the garden:: It’s hand tilled and sometimes manured. Seeded. Planted. Sometimes watered. Fenced. To partake of it involves sweat, grime, gritty fingernails, callused palms, wings, sunburned spaces in odd places on your body, wet clothes, tears, and more. It is a labor of love and it’s different every year.
