Such a wonderful post! I LOVE hiking! I especially love hiking in shaded areas, so the think I like to do is to obtain a topographic map of the area where I want to explore. The map indicates the shaded areas as well as the elevation changes, so its a fun way to pin point those trails that I'm most likely to love. I also like purchasing the most popular hiking books of the area, or googling the images around that spot, to find out where the most beautiful trails are located. thank you for sharing! I sometimes post pictures of the trails on Instagram too. http://instagram.com/theweaverofwords

Planning has become a MUST for me since I started doing raw foods. Soaking, sprouting, fermenting, dehydrating... but it is also a nice feeling to wake up or come home from work and have something ready for you!

I can't remember why, but I remember reading years ago that washing your vegetables and fruit before storing them in the fridge is a big mistake. Unless is just for a day, not washing them to use them in the next week for example. Sorry I can't remember why... :/ I agree the pictures are a little too dark, I love the potluck idea!

Post image for Embrace The Dark

The all encompassing dark… after the September equinox it seems to approach from all sides, engulfing us in its black velvet embrace. We wake long before the sun has managed to hoist itself over the horizon, and depart our jobs and daily responsibilities at dusk, the day seemingly over all too soon. Read more »

Post image for Egalitarianism And Tofu At Twin Oaks Intentional Community

Just outside of Richmond, Virginia, down a long and winding road shaded by dense greenery exists a world entirely different than the one that you and I inhabit. The world of Twin Oaks. Read more »

Wow, what a surprise to have Twin Oaks pop up on my blogfeed! I lived there and many friends still do. I love how you captured the detail of the land and surroundings in your photographs. There is so much more to say about living in an intentional community like Twin Oaks, the connections between people, the freedom of the culture so you can relax into being who you are (or for many, figuring out who that is), the varied worklife, the wild parties and the tensions of working out the big decisions together. Twin Oaks represents what is possible for all of us. We can all learn a lot about how to live lighter on the earth, be freer and live a juicy life from Twin Oakers. I love that the Free People blog is delving into topics like these. Love from a rainy day in NZ. x
Carly -Oct 15, 2014, 9:33AM
Ah, love Twin Oaks! I live in Charlottesville, VA, and have come into contact with many folks who've spent time living on the commune. What a wonderful and fairy tale-esque place; a place for intentional and mindful living. So glad you got to experience it. Hope you got to try their tofu too - it's quite unique!

There's no feeling in the world like that of being in and around the ocean and this post inspires me to sustain that feeling no matter where I am in life. It also reminds me of one of my favorite quotes-- "I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came." - John F. Kennedy
