Secrets of the land

This is a blog from a garden intern here at Songaia. I love the way she describes her adventures in the Washington State Wild lands! In Joy!


The sun rises as the valley creeks and groans to life. On this morning the light stays hidden as the fog from the night remains.

The fog folds and flows caressing the breeze like a serpent slipping through sand. The fog has returned to the mountain once more, just like when the first breeze blew.

My ears hear no sound yet I listen to the deep rumble and rhythm,

To a dance so often hidden.

The mountain she holds no protest against the fog forever rolling in. The fog tells his silent story through shapes and swirls to the ever patient mountain below. She holds his secrets of time allowing them to line her face.

There is a peace, a trusting between the two.

Because the fog will forever roll over and over and over again. And the mountain will always remain.

I have just returned from a mighty five…

Songaia Intern Blog

Living in the intentional/co-housing community Songaia, is a healing, magical, and absolutely rewarding experience.  Especially seeing it through the fresh eyes of the garden interns.  Right now we have three wonderful interns, Laura, Caroline, and Maddy.  Part of the internship is to write a blog a week.  This is one of the really insightful blog posts from Laura. Check out the original posting and other intern blogs at http://www.songaia.com/1/post/2013/07/week-four-more-important-than-a-work-log.html In joy! – Lightignite

WEEK FOUR – More Important Than a Work Log

by Laura Johnson, 2013 Summer Intern
This is more of a reflection on the community that we’ve been exposed to, over the day by day workings of the garden.

I think that as we fall into patterns, we’re less distracted and get to see the transformations that happen once we’ve been exposed to a series of new ideas and practices. When myself and Caroline first drove up to Songaia, we had no expectations, we had no clue what intentional communities consisted of, or what it really meant to live in community. Being here for a full month, I feel like we are coming into a fairly new role here, and it has been such a blessing.

As usual, it’s not the big things that have made the biggest impact. It’s the things like two friends having a disagreement, a third friend becomes a moderator, and the problem is solved with minimum issues and everyone walks away content. It’s been seeing someone have a vision and a passion, learning about it, and teaching others and making plans to actually do something. I cannot put into words exactly how this is different than home or my friends, but it is.
There is a group understanding that everyone is human, and that, yes, everyone will annoy you at times, but that the big picture is far beyond what disagreement form amongst each other. I know that this might seem obvious to many people, especially people at Songaia, but it is a more-refreshing-than-fresh-picked-cilantro idea to see lived out in a group of moderate size.
It’s been so amazing getting to be involved in this community; I can’t believe that it’s half-gone and so excited that it’s only half-begun!

Thank you!
