Lying in bed, I’m amused by and grateful for my current life. I basically got gifted an upgrade from my 3 person sharing hut to a hut all to myself. Emily offered the hut “Dolphin” to me yesterday during laundry since she’s staying in Nico’s bus now. I’m happy with my new sweet dwelling in the jungle. 

Heart Share tonight after dinner was facilitated by Judy. We did some pretty great improv sessions. We joined in groups of 3 creating the appearance of a syncopated machine with repetitious sounds and movement. A couple groups were pretty good. Fred sr., Nathan and I did a couple and Nathan, Rachel and I did one. We also did outer circle, inner circle rotation match up with spontaneous role playing and other games. 

Earlier we had a permaculture class with Tracy. We got soil samples, and talked about the water systems and soil and water in general in which we did a tour.

We had vegetarian sushi for lunch which was more like an overstuffed burrito that refused to stay together. Our work party was to take the remnants of the old roof on the barn off and put a new one on. Some of the crew machete’d and sickled the cane grass and weeds while Nico, myself, Fred sr. and Biko did the high ladder work. The members were ecstatic about us getting the job done in three hours. 

This morning I made the first 5 minutes of Joelle’s acro/partner yoga class, but unfortunately it was my morning to make breakfast for all. Hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, cashews, pumpkin seeds, raisins, almond butter, mameh zapote, papaya, oranges, bananas etc.

Sunset, went to Pole Star for Kirtan. Mediocre overall, but mellowed me out for sure. Beautiful grounds, lovely pot luck dinner and beautiful view.
