Stories and Essays

In addition to being a wannabe farmer, I am a wannabe writer. The stories below are a sample of my work. As I work at the crafts of living, farming, and writing, some efforts lead to fruition and some die on the vine.

"The proper concern is alone the action of duty not the fruits of the action. Cast then away all desire and fear for the fruits, and perform your duty."   ― The Bhagavad Gita

"The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” 
― Masanobu Fukuoka, The One-Straw Revolution
