New Folks

Hi friends. This is Alline, reporting for Dancing Rabbit. As I write this the date is April 27th – by the time this appears in the Memphis Democrat it will be Thursday, April 30th. How the heck did that happen? Pretty soon it will be May Day! Our neighbor Laura is reviving the age-old May […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ye Olde Pond

Ye Olde Pond

Maybe it’s because I wasn’t looking hard enough, or maybe it’s because I have never seen them in that awkward, alien stage in between being a child and truly becoming an adult, but I have never seen tadpoles as big as my thumb until now! Nik here, and sitting by Ye Olde Ponde at the end of a […]

Equinox

Equinox

Beneath a thinning coat of dry, golden field thatch creep the emerald antennae of spring grasses. We are not yet to the season of green-up, the one pastoralists and their ruminant cohorts alike anticipate all winter. This is equinox, the great leveling of Earth’s forces, especially for us here in the temperate reaches of America’s […]

Oh What a Beautiful Morning

Oh What a Beautiful Morning

Let’s sing it all together now!.. “Oh, what a beautiful mornin’, oh, what a beautiful day. I got a beautiful feelin’ ev’rything’s goin’ my way.” Yes folks, I may be a young gal of 30 but I certainly did start my mornin’ singin’ this song from the classic musical Oklahoma! Thanks, mom & pop, for […]

Donkey Power

Donkey Power

Hi friends! The heck with March coming in like a lion – we’ve got some definite lamb weather happening, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Just when I feel like another cold and snowy day will put me over the edge into a morose pit of crabbiness and despair, the sun comes out. Literally. Hooray!!!!! […]

Warmth

Warmth

Happy March from Dancing Rabbit! Whatever the weather says, the first of March always gives me a boost of hope that I may actually survive winter. Ted here to report on the village, after the week in which I reached the age of 40. It isn’t that the cold is all that oppressive, really. Last […]

Annual Retreat

Annual Retreat

The only pleasant part of the negative temperatures of late is the satisfying way that wood splits. Or realizing that no matter how old you are, breaking the brittle top layer of a frozen puddle with your boot toe is secretly satisfying, like cracking through the top of a creme brûlée. Maybe humans just like […]
