Going to the Goose

We rarely leave the farm overnight.  It’s especially difficult to do in the Summer.  So when we do, there has to be a really compelling reason.

We haven’t yet figured out how we’re going to manage it, but ten days from now we’ll be going to the Wild Goose Festival for a few days of camping, music and wisdom-seeking.  This festival has rocked our world the last two years.  (See posts about that HERE HERE and HERE).  My experience there in 2011 convinced me to (finally) leave my old job.   It revived us in many ways.  We’re hoping for more inspiration and rejuvenation in 2013 as well.

This year we’ll be part of a presentation entitled “Food, Faith and the Future.”  The format is PechaKucha, which is new to me.  We’ll be talking about alternatives to the industrial food system and hoping we don’t embarrass ourselves.

I can’t recommend this event highly enough.   It’s an extraordinary gathering of soul-nourishing people.  Hope to see some of y’all there.
