The summer is winding down and my four-month sojourn at Woolman Hill has ended.
I've moved to a two bedroom apartment next to the Greenfield Community Farm, a project of Just Roots where I am a team member helping with outreach and promotion. We are reclaiming 60 acres that for one hundred years was our town's poor farm.
It has been more than five months since Rahima's death. The pain and sense of dislocation have subsided. I used the time at Woolman Hill well and now I am moving forward with confidence. I loved Rahima and who we were together. What remains is a sweetness for having known her and having been known by her so well.
Thank you all for sharing our journey.
