// Domain names are beautiful //[.com] domains, specifically. I quite enjoy buying them and building online projects that focus on purpose over profit.I sometimes write. Poorly? meh. I wrote an essay about onions that folks on Hacker News liked, so I got that going for me.I'm an Ole Miss Rebel, I'll pet cats if I see them, and small town + simple living is the life for me.πŸ¦’ ⚽ πŸ€ πŸ“½οΈ πŸ–₯️ πŸ”— ⚫com 🀠 🍼 πŸ§… πŸ‚ 🧊 🦘 🧘 β›² 🀠

" I am like an idiot, my mind is so empty. " - Lao Tzu 道德碓

It's a mystery to me
We have a greed, with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all, you won't be "free"
Society, you're a crazy breed

... the great way is not difficult for those who have no preferences

" Our growth will always be contingent on our willingness to be uncomfortable "~ George Raveling

May 2024
Vidalia onion shipping season is rolling along ~ our shipping season began on April 22nd. While we enjoyed a spike in orders during Covid, it's been a challenging to achieve those numbers again. But - all in all - very happy with the crop & order volume so far.
We launched a YouTube channel, and I've been enjoying the randomness & fragility of capturing the farming world on video. Meaning, there is no planning. If you plan, it will rain, or it'll hail, or a tornado will form (like a few weeks ago). It forces you to slow down and become fluid. I essentially text Aries the night before if the following day is convenient. Then I arrive & film whatever is going on. No real agenda. Farming writes the topic. I capture on video, then figure out the direction in post. I believe I'm built for that type of uncertainty. Just throw myself in & figure out later.In June, I'll travel to Jackson Hole, WY to visit some dude ranches. Most advertise on & utilize I simply enjoy shaking hands & saying hello. That's what this trip is for.thanks to Derek Sivers for the Now page inspiration
