Chickens, Forests, Rivers and Moons…

It was cool and wet yesterday morning. Cool enough to see your breath.  North Florida is not anything like the southern part of the state. It’s lush and deep. Forests, rivers, lakes and big dramatic skies. It’s a wild and beautiful place made more so by the people we have been with here. The Moons.

What a gift it has been meeting them all, eating Ms Mary’s delicious meals, sharing stories and mind blowing outings! The Wakulla Springs! The earth primeval. Alligators, birds, turtles, trees and water bubbling up from the earth.

The Tallahassee Jr Museum! Hands on history. Historic buildings, native flora and fauna. An amazing place to spend an afternoon. Ms Moon’s beautiful daughters Lily, Jessie and May joined us with their children Owen, Gibson, Magnolia and August. Have you ever heard more perfect names? They were, each and every one of them, beautiful, sweet and warm people. It’s going to be hard to leave.

This is it though. This life of movement and stillness. I’m learning to flow with it.

Scenes from the last few days…


Ms Moon’s chickens! They’ve spoiled store bought eggs for me forever.

  1. Oh, Yolie. I am going to be absolutely devastated when you leave and yet, I know you have to. This has been such a perfect time. And in the days that you’ve been here I have had no depression and/or anxiety. Coincidence? I think not. Thank you for this time together. Let us meet up soon. Please?


  2. Dearest Mary! It will be hard to leave but we will be back. It has been so perfect and wonderful in every way. Thank you!!
