Tim's thoughts on 2014

building a tipi

Last year was an amazing year at our school. It’s become clear to me this year that Headwaters is so much more than a school. It’s become sacred space for a grouping of people, of all ages, that have over 23 years, been a part of our community. Our school and land holds space for our community. It has become a source of light in the darkness. It reminds me of the saying, “No amount of darkness can put out the light of one candle or star.”

Goodbye to our sacred Peacekeeper

Riley

This year we lost Riley, our wolf dog. Riley was the definition of what Headwaters is. He was wild, but not too wild. He was loyal. He loved all dogs and people. He was a peacemaker. He was beautiful and mysterious. Riley brought true, raw spirit to our land and camp. He protected and cared for Julie, and lived with her after Bear died. He was a sacred friend.

I Live Here

Headwaters Land

I live here where the water runs clear and I can drink from the earth with no vessel between it and my lips.
I live here with the pack, and I am watched over.
I live here where I help grow and raise what I eat, where I physically participate in living my life.
I live here with the honey bees, and sacred gardens and the towering trees.
I live here where smell is welcomed and nothing is avoided through a mask.
I live here where the blue sky is really blue, and green has far more shades than I can count.
