The Spirit Zone

For certain, walking in the spirit zone is tedious.  Because God calls us (II Cor. 5:7) to walk by faith and not by sight, we can be assured that the visibles will do their best to choke out the invisibles.  Our goals to walk by faith in the unseen is forever tripped up by the […]

American Kestrel

This past week I have noticed an American Kestrel spending a lot of time in my yard. I often don’t even have to see it, just listen for its calls.  So far, it has killed a dove from my front porch, a red-winged black bird, an unknown dark colored bird, and several mice. The Kestrel […]

The Matrix

The Matrix

The morning after my return home from a month away, I was greeted by the sights and sounds of springtime (robins, peepers, budding trees) and hugs from community mates, all saying “welcome home”. So lovely! I felt ready to jump back in to DR life. Aaaand the next day fell ill and missed two-plus weeks […]

Down in the Valley

Turkey hunting where I live is not for the faint of heart. Even though there are some easy places most of the hunting I do is in the mountains. Our mountains are not like the Rockies but they are also not like the deep south. The highest peak is about 3,000 feet. Needless to say […]

Time for a Breather

Time for a Breather

Whew! Time for a breather. I’ve been planting bare-root tree and shrub whips for a week straight, feeling as though my shovel is a permanent attachment to my arm. A handy one, don’t get me wrong- but a little unwieldy. Ted here with this week’s news from Dancing Rabbit. As I’ve walked about the village […]

Landscaping for the Birds

What can I say?  It’s tax day.  On a brighter note, you should be scoping out the green houses and stores for those plants and flowers that attract your feathered friends. I have older trees in my yard, so I am trying to plant new trees and shrubs that will not only have longevity, but […]

Precious Time

Precious Time

    Hello, busy world. This is Stephanie, first-time writer for this column, relatively new resident at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, and administrative assistant for the non-profit organization, Dancing Rabbit, Inc. When I first pondered writing this post, I thought I would write about the thrills of nature and the joy of living in community. While […]

Red-Winged Blackbird

One of the first “spring” birds you will hear this spring is the Red-Winged Blackbird singing Okaleee. This sound you hear is given only by the male.  When he sings this on his territory, he usually spreads his wings at the same time. Ch’ch’ch’chee is heard only from the female. The female is a very […]
