Tika wanders Tahilla Farm, Summer 2016

People often ask me why we went off in search of a home
in New Hampshire.
I reply that we didn't...it just found us.
Or rather, it found me by way
of my blog. It is not a quick story, in fact
it has now been a four year story
with many chapters still to come.
