When I was in my “farm dreaming” stage, I sat at my kitchen table one day trying to determine why it was I felt so blue. I sat in the quiet and just listened to my heart and my spirit. Afterwards, I started thumbing through magazines I’d reserved for collaging. As I began to pick out pictures that appealed to me, I noticed that there was a theme–my wished-for farm. The more time I spent collecting and creating, the happier I became. By the end of the project (and several hours later), I had completed a paradigm shift–collaging from my soul had helped me realize that this homestead could become that farm.
