Winter Visit

A voice called us to Estonia – the voice of Mari Kalkun,

You’ll hear it now.

Friends have helped us to acquire the farm this autumn on the island of Hiiumaa:

Maegede Talu – farm on the hill

What do we encounter there in winter?

We have asked two friends, Maarja and Birk, to find with us , what can live and grow in this place.

Our visions: this will be a place

of movement

of encounter

of being

of silence

of expansion

of experience

of creation

of living in nature

of gardening

of gathering

of discovering

The farm has been abandoned for years, but we’ve felt welcome from the start, despite the cold. The few days have revealed so much , they’re bright and the summer plans are ripening.

Everybody can come and help develop this place.

AND DON’T THINK
THAT A GARDEN LOOSES ITS ECSTASY IN WINTER
IT IS MERLY RESTING
BUT THE ROOTS ARE REBELLIOUS
DEEP DOWN
