Friends Along the Way

In my reflecting on my life after reaching 60 this year, I’ve thought a lot about the richness that all of my close animal friends have brought to my life. I truly owe them all my life, for all of the richness of my life.

Goodbye to Our Sacred Peacekeeper


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.

Tim's thoughts on 2014

shelter building

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.”
