Moving on...again

As I  sit under the expansive ceiling of our jungle home I am once again reminded how extraordinary this experience has been for our family.
Sure the heat is at times oppressing, the bugs relentless, the inconveniences of living without electric power, hot water and until very recently a toilet can at times feel very overwhelming, yet now as this time is coming to a close
I cannot help but to be acutely aware of the blessings that this 
brief experience has afforded us.

The children enjoy endless creative play in nature, their relationship with the animals, especially the babies, but truly all the different creatures around us, has created in them a growing compassion for all things living. Their learning has been completely natural, they have learned the necessity of attentiveness and awareness when living in an environment shared with potentially dangerous animals...and they have been free, free to just be..

We have, for a moment, taken part in the development of this harsh terrain, and so, with the help of many, created a more cohesive  and functioning piece of land.
The fact is that our little family will be making the move north. Come mid may we will be taking our leave and move to Denmark, a move that we have envisioned for three years, and are finally able to make a reality.
There are many reasons for the sudden change in plans and I could get into it here, but I wont because it is not important. Suffice it to say, that everything has worked out in perfect order for everyone involved, and that we feel nothing but gratitude.
So as we work the land these last few weeks it is with the intention of leaving everything in the best possible way, as a reminder that we were here and cared deeply for this project and with the wishes that it will continue to grow into
the wonderful place envisioned.
