Hard Play and Fun Work

Written on June 20, 2017 at 2:39 pm, by

This has been a week of hard play, hard work, fun work, challenging work, and finally some rain (which lessened the workload considerably). Christina, here, bringing news of what’s been happening in this corner of NeMo. In my past life, I often heard people use the expression “work hard, play hard.” What I imagined when […]

Hot and Dry

Written on June 13, 2017 at 10:49 am, by

Ho wdy y’all. Ben here, with another report from Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, which is pretty much where I intend to always be, regardless of the heat, cold, dryness, dampness, or whatever. This current extended heatwave and accompanying dry weather isn’t quite pleasant enough to describe as sultry. I’m pretty ok with sultry. This heat is […]

Warm Days, New Folks, and Workshops

Hello, and welcome to the latest installment in “This week at Dancing Rabbit”! Tereza here, feeling quite warm as I write, in my still-cool house with all the shades drawn… It is beautifully sunny outdoors, and as soon as I finish the first draft of this, I’m heading out for some pond time. (Later: Aaaahhh, […]

The Theme of Plenty

Written on May 30, 2017 at 2:37 pm, by

I found myself awake at dawn one morning this past week (our cat Gromit gets wired at about 4 am and we don’t have a cat door), and seeing the blooming pink of the sky, I decided to go out for a short walk around the village at a time I don’t usually do so. […]

So Much Growing!

Written on May 16, 2017 at 11:37 am, by

One of the main reasons I wanted to move to Dancing Rabbit was to be more in touch with the rhythms of the seasons and of day-to-day life. To watch things grow and change and develop and to be there for each step of the way. Well, I have been very in touch with that […]

Sure Signs of Spring

Written on May 9, 2017 at 12:53 pm, by

Howdy y’all, Ben here, again. It is a pleasant morning in early May here at Dancing Rabbit. I have been awake for quite some time, prompted mostly by the pre-dawn scolding song of house wrens about my warren, the occasional crow of roosters, and the ever present hum of trains a mile and a half […]

The Return of Spring… and Things

Written on April 25, 2017 at 9:04 am, by

Yes, indeedy, spring is here, a time of growth, rebirth, and lots of activity. Recently returned from a month in Texas with Nathan visiting family and friends, I made my first batch of asparagus and shiitake mushrooms last week, sauteed up with plenty of Ironweed garlic, and that right there was the taste of spring […]

Season of Flowers

Written on April 18, 2017 at 10:12 am, by

Hello all, and happy flowering season to you! Ted here to bring you the news from Dancing Rabbit. Everything seems to be in bloom this week, all-in on spring’s arrival. Green is the new gray/brown, and our honey bees are often a good clue for me, as I roam about our gardens and orchards and […]

Moving at the Speed of Life

Written on April 11, 2017 at 10:07 am, by

Saturday’s Metropolitan Opera broadcast was a performance of Richard Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. You know, the one with the famous wedding march that virtually all brides use to make their grand entrance. While listening I was observing the frantic activity of at least 14 different species of insects visiting my blossoming plum tree. Cob here, […]

This Week’s Reasons Why

Written on April 4, 2017 at 9:33 am, by

Every once in a while, I wonder why we decided to move our little family halfway across the country—why we decided to leave behind our house, extended family, jobs, schools, and a giant patch of black raspberries in our back yard. Christina, here, writing about this week’s reasons why. My week started off with a […]
